When, Where, How and Why to Change Your Vehicle's Oil

The Car Care Council reminds motorists that basic vehicle maintenance is an easy, inexpensive way to prolong the life of vehicles and avoid costly repairs down the road.

"When thinking about vehicle maintenance, regular oil changes likely come to mind first," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "A quick review of the why, when, where and how of changing your vehicle's oil is a good way to see the value of basic auto care."

Why
Motor oil lubricates the moving parts in your engine, preventing wear by keeping the engine clean, removing contaminants and regulating engine temperature to prevent overheating. Neglecting to check and change your vehicle's oil can lead to expensive repairs, including engine failure.

When
Check your vehicle owner's manual; most will recommend changing the oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. However, other factors such as harsh weather conditions, driving in stop-and-go traffic or on dusty/dirt roads, towing a trailer, driving at high speeds and the age of your vehicle can all bring down this time interval, making it a safe bet to have the oil checked at the lower end of the recommended interval.

Where
An oil change performed by a professional technician is a quick, low-cost vehicle service. When taking your car in for maintenance or repairs, be sure that the shop employs ASE certified technicians. ASE certification means that the technicians take their training seriously and have passed tests to demonstrate their skills.

How
Do-it-yourselfers can access the Car Care Council's website for an instructional video by Driverside on how to change your vehicle's oil.

To help drivers "be car care aware," the Car Care Council has many free tools available at www.carcare.org, including a free 80-page Car Care Guide and a customized service schedule with email reminders to make it easy to follow a routine auto care program.

    While visiting my nephew the battery in my Jeep died. Allstate roadside assistance was able to get it started but it would not stay charged. Luckily, Danny lived next to my nephew and was able to get my Jeep towed to his shop and fixed the next day. Great service at a reasonable price! Thanks, Danny!

    Had a slow air leak in one tire due to a screw in the tread. These guys squeezed me in to get a plug repair on short notice and couldn't have been friendlier. They were AAA recommended as well.

    Danny and his crew are excellent and have always been honest and fair. I've used them many times and have always been impressed. They have loaners if needed and the prices are very fair.

    I'm a seasonal resident and the mechanic I usually use in Sarasota was unable to get an appointment for me. I needed to get my oil changed and car inspected before a road trip, and Beiler Auto got an appointment for me quickly and advised me on what needed done and what to keep my eye on for the future. Unlike many mechanics, I never felt pressured to do any work. They discussed pros and cons of doing work now or waiting after my trip. I'll be happy to take my vehicles there for future work.
