So You Need an Oil Change for Your Chevy Vehicle

No one tells you how much work it can be keeping up with a new vehicle, but not every task has to be complicated! Something like getting a regular Chevy oil change for your car is a quick and simple process that will keep your engine running smoothly and your Chevy on the road for as long as possible. We’ll walk you through the basics of oil changes and how you can get them done right at Patriot Chevy Limerick.

Why Do Cars Need Oil Changes?

All cars are made up of tiny gears and parts, and the oil keeps all those parts properly lubricated. Driving causes those parts to move which in turn causes friction when those parts interlock. Motor oil makes it so that the gears aren’t grinding together or wearing out when this happens. Fresh oil keeps your car safer since grinding gears can spark or get stuck. It also makes for a smoother and more comfortable ride.

What Happens if I Don’t Get an Oil Change for a Long Time?

Holding off on oil changes can cause some serious damage to the engine since the parts can get worn down. Getting regular oil changes may seem like a hassle but replacing Chevy parts or getting a big repair on the engine is much more expensive than keeping up with the maintenance.

How Often Should I Get My Oil Changed?

We recommend getting your oil changed every three months or 3,000 to 5,000 miles no matter which one of our new Chevy cars you own. The same goes for pre-owned vehicles as well. Regardless, a good rule of thumb is to bring in your car as soon as possible when the oil change service light comes on in your dashboard.
