When Should You Check Your Oil?

In the past, an oil change had to be done every 3,000 miles. Thanks to advancements in both engines and oils, it is only necessary to get your oil changed every 7,500 miles or so. If you're not sure when to get your oil changed, it is a good idea to check your oil every now and again. The color will tell you a lot about the quality of your oil. It should be clear like cooking oil and if it is dirty, it will need to be changed.

Your motor oil acts like sponge and collects all the dirt and debris that would otherwise make its way into the parts of your car. If it is too saturated, it won't be able to do its job effectively. If it's time to get an oil change, be sure to come see us here at Lithia Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat of Santa Fe to get your vehicle serviced and tuned up.
