Reasons Why You Should Let Us Change Your Oil

Oil Change Near Me

Bringing your vehicle to our Chevrolet service center for an oil change on a regular basis is one of the wisest things you can do to preserve the life of your engine. As important as it is to have your oil changed in keeping with the recommendations in your owner’s manual, you may not want to do it yourself. Why is that the case?

There are some valid reasons that combine to make a strong case for letting the factory-trained, certified technicians at LaFontaine Chevrolet Dexter handle your oil and oil filter changes.

Mistakes Can Happen

Drivers who lack experience with changing their oil are more prone to making mistakes while performing the task. Even minor errors while changing your oil can lead to big problems. Forgetting to tighten all the bolts enough can cause an oil leak that may result in costly engine damage, for example.

It Can Get Expensive

Seasoned do-it-yourselfers may have all the materials necessary to change their oil, but newbies will have to make an investment in supplies before they change their oil. With it being advisable to change your oil filter at the same time you change your oil, you’ll need to pick up a filter from our Dexter, MI Chevrolet parts department. You’ll also need to buy:

  • Fresh oil
  • Special wrench
  • Oil pan
  • And more!

Considering all the items you’ll need to complete just one oil change, you’ll be better off scheduling Chevy service at our location unless you plan to change your oil repeatedly moving forward.

Oil Changes Are Labor-Intensive

Drivers who contact our Chevy dealership to inquire about the steps involved with an oil change are often surprised by how many of them there are. An oil change is a labor-intensive process that goes far beyond draining your old oil and pouring new oil into a reservoir.

Proper Disposal Is a Must

Getting rid of old oil and oil filters isn’t as simple as throwing them in the trash. Instead, you’ll have to go out of your way to find a hazardous waste recycling facility to dispose of those items.

Problems Might Be Missed

When you schedule an appointment to bring your vehicle to our Chevy service center for an oil change, our technicians will inspect your car for problems as they change the oil. Our team may find issues you’ll overlook if you perform your own oil changes.
