A vehicle that gets an oil change in Sacramento when needed stands to be more effective and efficient than one that doesn’t, so you should be able to tell when your car is due. Regular oil changes keep your car operating the way it should, meaning you will have fewer problems to deal with over the long term. Watch this video on how to tell if your engine oil is bad.
Determining whether or not you are due for an oil change is not a particularly difficult process, and there are a few ways you can go about it. If you know you haven’t changed your standard oil in 4,000 miles or your synthetic oil in 6,000 miles, it’s probably time for an oil change.
We at Frank’s Automotive recommend splitting your Manufacturer’s recommended oil service interval in half. So if your Manufacturer recommends 15,000 miles before oil service, we recommend oil services every 7,500 miles. For clients who drive their vehicles sparingly and do not put 3,000 to 5,000 miles on their vehicle, the Manufacturer’s recommend once a year. For vehicles that are burning oil or oil looks sludgy, check out our Bluechem product .
