Oil Change Auto Service in Edinboro at Cunningham Chrysler of Edinboro

Why Are Oil Changes Important?

Motor oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle. Oil provides the lubrication your engine needs to reduce heat lubricate moving parts. However, oil becomes dirtier due to engine wear particles and less effective over time, making it essential to change your oil periodically.

Without clean oil, your engine will wear out quickly. Keeping up with your oil changes is much cheaper and easier than needing to replace an entire engine or vehicle.

When Should You Get an Oil Change?

The general rule of thumb that you will hear from mechanics in the Erie area is to change your oil about every 3,000 miles. That being said, some synthetic oils will allow you to drive for twice that distance. If you're not sure how long your vehicle's oil change interval should be, then speak with our trusted service team or mechanic in the Meadville area or reference your owner's manual.

In your owner's manual, you will likely find information that differentiates between normal and severe driving conditions and their corresponding recommended intervals. While you may think that because you're not off-roading or tearing up the road that your driving must be considered normal. However, severe driving conditions may not sound severe to you but are for your engine.

Severe driving conditions may include:

  • Driving Short Distances
  • Start and Stop Traffic
  • Towing or Carrying Heavy Objects
  • Extreme Hot or Cold Weather While Driving on the Highway
  • Driving on Steep Hills or Mountains Regularly

How Do You Know if You Have a Problem with Your Engine?

There are a few red flags to watch out for that may indicate that there is an issue with your engine oil. If you find oil stains underneath your vehicle points to possible problems involving your oil pan gasket, oil plug, or valve cover gasket. If the oil light is on, your vehicle is suffering from low oil pressure. If the oil light is on, stop using your vehicle and have it towed and inspected immediately.

Another less obvious indicator is when your engine has an uneven idle, clattering noise, or rough performance.

If it's a part that needs replacing, then check out our parts center to find high-quality parts for affordable costs. If you need help finding the right part, then order the part with us, and your vehicle will be running smoothly again in no time.

How Can I Tell if My Motor Oil is Bad?

Many modern vehicles have a digital readout that lets you know when your oil is approaching the end of its usefulness. If you like to be the judge of your motor oil's quality, then roll up your sleeves and pull out the dipstick to inspect the oil.

The motor oil should be a translucent, golden color. It's time for an oil change if the oil is gritty, dark brown, milky, or coming out in globs. If you don't want to be responsible for judging the quality of the oil, then one of our trusted technicians can determine if you need an oil change or not.
