Oil Change Benefits

By staying up to date on oil changes and routine maintenance, you can ensure peace of mind that your vehicle will run smoothly during its lifespan. Though every vehicle is different, the typical oil span guideline is between 7,500 to 10,000 miles. If you typically drive under harsh conditions or frequently off-road, we recommend visiting earlier. Main benefits of staying up to date with oil changes include:

  • Ensuring engine parts stay lubricated
  • Ensuring your engine runs at maximum power
  • Ensuring your engine is free of pollutants
  • Ensuring your engine does not overheat

It is never a good idea to extend your oil change intervals. Engine oil wears out overtime, leaving your engine with insufficient lubrication and protection. Trust that our certified Mopar technicians will care for your vehicle and perform the best service possible!

Frequently Asked Questions About Oil Changes

Why Do Cars Need Oil Changes?

Keeping your engine running smoothly requires proactive maintenance, and regular oil changes are at the top of the list. Here’s why:

  • Lubrication: Oil in your engine reduces friction and heat, preventing metal-on-metal contact and extending engine life.
  • Cooling: Oil absorbs heat from engine parts, transferring it to the radiator to maintain a safe operating temperature.
  • Cleaning: Oil traps and carries away dirt and debris in the engine, keeping it clean and functioning efficiently.
  • Corrosion Protection: Oil contains additives that prevent rust and corrosion inside the engine, protecting its components.

How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

Oil changes will typically take less than an hour to complete, but times may vary. To spend the least amount of time waiting, make sure to call ahead of time or schedule an appointment online!

How Often Do You Need an Oil Change?

Here’s a general guideline for Duluth drivers:

  • Conventional oil: Change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or more frequently if driving in harsh conditions.
  • Synthetic blend: Change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles or according to the manufacturer’s recommendation.
  • Full-synthetic oil: Up to 15,000 miles is possible in ideal conditions, but consult your owner’s manual for Duluth-specific recommendations.

Remember:

  • Don’t rely on oil color! Even dark oil can still be good if it hasn’t reached its mileage limit.
  • Follow the factory maintenance schedule for your car, as it takes into account all the relevant factors for Duluth drivers.
  • If you’re unsure, consult a trusted mechanic at your local Duluth service center.

How Often to Change Oil Filter?

Oil filter lifespan depends on a trifecta of factors:

  • Filter type: Standard filters hold out for 5,000 miles, while extended-life and synthetic options tackle dirt for up to 10,000 miles.
  • Operating conditions: Grueling commutes and dusty off-road adventures stress your filter, demanding more frequent changes. Gentle highway miles let it work its magic for longer.

Manufacturer recommendations: Your car’s manual holds the golden ticket! Consult it for the optimal service interval tailored to your engine and driving habits.
