Why You Need Oil Changes
Without proactive oil changes, your engine will quickly go on life support. Changing the oil and oil filter regularly allows your engine to perform at its best, and helps prevent costly repairs down the road.
Every time you drive, oil is working hard to keep your engine running smoothly. Over time motor oil breaks down and loses its effectiveness. Eventually, the protective additives become used up and the oil starts to degrade.
Benefits of Oil Changes
Oil changes extend the life of your vehicle by lubricating the engine and reducing wear. Oil changes also prevent engine overheating by keeping all those hot moving parts at a stable temperature. Getting an oil change can even lead to reduced engine noise and increased MPGs.

Total Car Care Pro Tips
- There are many different recommendations on how often to change your engine oil. At All Tune and Lube, Total Car Care, we understand that no two vehicles are the same. Changing oil in accordance with the manufacturer recommendations is always the best bet. Driving conditions (stop-and-go traffic, heavy weight loads, or severe weather) should also be considered when deciding oil change timing.
- If your oil warning light ever comes on, stop driving the vehicle as soon as possible. It could be due to a lack of oil, a broken oil pump, or something else. Have it inspected by a certified vehicle technician to prevent serious damage.
- To accurately check your engine’s oil level, run the vehicle for 10-15 minutes to warm the oil. Park in a level place and turn off the engine. Wait a few minutes to allow the oil to drain back to the oil pan. Remove the dipstick and wipe it clean. Reinsert the dipstick, pushing it all the way down then back out. The oil mark should be between the hash marks on the dipstick.
