Why do you need routine oil change service?
If your engine is the heart of your car, then oil is your vehicle’s blood. The primary responsibility of oil is to lubricate the different parts of your car’s engine. It also acts as a cooling agent that keeps your engine from overheating. Over time, though, your oil becomes less effective due to exposure to air, heat and moisture, causing it to thicken and become sludge-like. Without an oil change, your oil will no longer pump smoothly through your engine, and it won’t battle debris that damages your engine, resulting in costly repairs.
Having a regular oil change service can keep your car in tip-top shape and prevent your engine from becoming damaged. By visiting our Springfield location for your routine oil change, you can keep your mind on more important things—like where you’re going next.
How often do you need an oil change?
The old standard for how often you should receive an oil change was every 3,000 miles or every three months. With today’s auto advancements, your car’s engine can potentially drive for longer between each oil change.
At Virginia Tire & Auto, we advise that customers get oil change service as often as the manufacturer of the vehicle recommends. The car’s recommended oil change interval can be found in the owner’s manual. If the vehicle is also equipped with an oil life monitoring system, the car should be brought in when the system notifies the driver that an oil change is needed.
If the recommended interval cannot be found and the car is not equipped with a monitoring system, a Virginia Tire & Auto sales associate will access the vehicle’s oil change schedule electronically and let you know the advised oil change interval by your manufacturer. After you receive an oil change service at Virginia Tire & Auto of Springfield, the oil change mileage interval can be found on your printed invoice and is used to measure the mileage for the next recommended oil change interval. A reminder sticker is also placed on the windshield of your vehicle.
What kind of oil do you need for your car?
At Virginia Tire & Auto, we use synthetic blends and synthetic oil for our oil change service in Springfield, VA. Compared to conventional and mineral oil, synthetic oil:
- Offers powerful protection on engine wear.
Your engine’s parts are in constant contact with one another. The oil acts as a barrier between the components of your engine. As the oil breaks down, it can’t protect from wear and tear. Synthetic oils retain their wear protection properties much longer, which increases engine life.
- Keeps your engine cleaner.
Synthetic oils have fewer impurities compared to other oils. This allows the oil to oppose the formation of sludge, which prevents deposits from forming in your engine.
- Runs better in colder temperatures.
Oil settles as your car sits for a while, whether it be overnight or over the weekend. When the ignition starts, it can take a little while for the oil to start flowing, especially in colder climates and/or months. Synthetic oils, however, flow quickly even at lower temperatures and start protecting the engine right after your car starts.
- Protects better in warmer temperatures.
Hot temperatures can cause conventional oil to break down quickly. When running, engines are already really warm. Add that to hot temperatures outside, and the oil protecting your engine can break down or even evaporate, leaving your engine open to wear and tear. Synthetic oils resist high temperatures, protecting your engine in warm climates.
