Regular oil and filter change is the easiest and least expensive way to protect the life of your car. Clean oil is the lifeblood of your engine; it reduces friction allowing it to perform more efficiently and not wear down components quickly. How often you need to change oil and filter depends on the mileage and age of your vehicle. Some newer cars and trucks are recommended at 7,000 miles while older cars should change every 3,000 miles. The type of oil also dictates frequency with synthetic and synthetic blend oils having a longer replacement cycle.
Synthetic oil stands up to heat better with superior lubrication than traditional oil. There are a variety of synthetic oils available. Some can help improve fuel mileage or are designed for high-mileage vehicles, others still for high-performance engines. Your tech at Austin’s Pro Max can make recommendations for your vehicle based on your requirements.
Additionally, with every oil and filter change comes a visual inspection checking fluid levels, tire pressure and air filter.
