Why do I need regular oil change service?
Oil is the lifeblood of your car. Oil lubricates, cools and cleans the moving parts of your vehicle. It helps seal pistons in the cylinders. Without oil, your car would not work.
Regular oil changes at any of Virginia Tire & Auto’s 13 Northern Virginia locations will keep your mind on more important things — like where to drive next. Find your nearest location from Ashburn to Centerville to Chantilly, and schedule an appointment now.
How often should I get oil change service?
The old oil change rule of thumb was every three months or 3,000 miles. Today, car engines can generally go longer between each oil change service. Virginia Tire & Auto’s mechanics recommend that our customers change their oil as often as their vehicle manufacturer instructs.
Pull that booklet out of the glove compartment and see how often you should get oil change service — or, if your vehicle is equipped with an oil life monitoring system, simply pay a visit to one of Virginia Tire & Auto’s 13 Northern Virginia locations when your dashboard notification is engaged. Our mechanics can get that oil change completed quickly and efficiently, and they’ll add a sticker to your windshield that reminds you when to stop by again. Schedule an appointment now.
Do my driving habits affect how often I need oil change service?
You may have heard the term “severe driving” and assume it refers mainly to ice road truckers. Not true! Many of us have severe driving habits, and, in these cases, our mechanics recommend following a severe oil change schedule to protect our car.
- Do you spend a lot of time running errands in your car — making repeated short trips under five miles?
- Does your daily commute include a lot of stop-and-go action?
- Do you use your vehicle to haul heavy loads on a regular basis?
- Do you take a lot of short trips in your car (10 miles or fewer)?
- Do you drive on rough roads, dirt roads, muddy roads or salt-covered roads regularly?
- Do you spend a lot of time idling or driving at a low speed?
If you answered yes to anyone of the above questions, then you should follow your manufacturer’s severe oil change schedule.
What kind of oil do I need for my car?
We use synthetic blend and synthetic oil at our 13 Virginia Tire & Auto locations.
The benefits of synthetic oil include:
- Slower breakdown. Synthetic oil lasts longer than regular oil.
- Heat resistance. Synthetic oil withstands higher engine temperatures.
- Cold weather protection. When temperatures fall, synthetic oil does not turn to sludge.
Synthetic oil is distilled, refined and purified during a rigorous production process, enabling its individual molecules to be more consistent. This allows the synthetic oil to better meet the needs of high-performance engines, particularly in very hot or very cold weather conditions. Our mechanics also note that synthetic oil protects against engine deposits and reduces engine wear.
Consult your car’s owner’s manual and talk to a mechanic before your Virginia Auto & Tire oil change service to find out which oil is right for your vehicle. Schedule an appointment now.
