Don't wait too long before your next oil change - let the experts at Bozarth Chevrolet ensure that your Chevy gets the best care possible!

How Do I Tell When My Vehicle Needs an Oil Change?

There are a few telltale signs that will help you know when it's time for your next oil change. Your vehicle will alert you with indicators that may include:

  • Oil Color and Level: Check your engine's oil level and color by removing the dipstick and inspecting it. If the level is low or the oil is dark brown or black, you might need an oil change.
  • Mileage: Conventional oil requires a 3,000-mile change and synthetic oil typically lasts twice that amount of time. However, your oil change might depend on the type of driver you are or the weather conditions your engine works through.
  • Rough Engine Idle: As the oil starts to wear down and become less effective at lubricating your engine's components, you might notice that your engine has a rough idle and provides less smooth performance.

Why Change Your Oil Regularly?

Routine replacement is important as well as necessary to ensure better performance and efficiency, regardless of your engine oil type. Without routine oil changes, your oil becomes less and less effective at preventing dirt, dust, and debris from clogging the engine. The longer you wait between oil changes, the harder it is for your vehicle to lubricate the moving parts. These issues can result in engine failure and cost you more in the long run. Our expert service team can help prevent this with routine maintenance!


How to Change Oil on Your Own

If you'd prefer to take care of your own engine oil at home, it's quite easy! First, make sure that you have the necessary tools and the right oil for your engine, as well as a replacement oil filter. Once you've got what you need, follow these steps:

  • Check the type and amount of oil needed
  • Get together your filter, wrenches, and other supplies
  • Prepare your vehicle
  • Locate the oil filter and drain plug
  • Drain the oil
  • Tighten the drain plug
  • Change the oil filter
  • Add the new oil
  • Check the oil level
