So, Your Chevy Needs an Oil Change

Chevy Oil Change in Dexter

Your Chevy vehicle does a lot for you, so one of the best things you can do in return is keep up with vehicle maintenance so that it continues to run smoothly. A common and easy service to keep up with is the all-important oil change. Doing so will ensure a healthy engine and a safer drive on the road.

We’re here to answer some of the most common questions you may have about the service and how to get it done right here at LaFontaine Chevrolet Dexter.

Why Do I Need to Keep Getting Oil Changes?

Cars and their engines are made up of interlocking gears and parts. The oil in your car makes sure that all of these Chevy parts are properly lubricated.

When you’re driving and the parts are moving, it causes friction, and bad or old oil makes those gears grind together. Gears that get stuck or cause too much friction can be a hazard on the road, so fresh oil is essential for the safety of you and your passengers.

What Happens If I Wait Too Long to Get an Oil Change?

Driving too long with bad or old oil can lead to seriously damaging several parts in your car including the engine. Things like small internal fires or smoke are more likely to occur.

It may seem like the “change oil” light comes on too often but you should never skip an oil change. It’s certainly cheaper than replacing a whole engine!

How Often Should I Get My Oil Changed?

Whether you’ve been driving your Chevy for years or have one of our new Chevy cars, it’s recommended that you change your oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles (roughly every three months). If you’re not good at planning, the “change oil” light on your dashboard is an excellent indicator.
