Why Does My Car Need an Oil Change?

Oil keeps your engine's moving parts lubricated and cool to reduce friction. Without plenty of clean oil, your engine runs the risk of overheating and suffering damage. Since oil gets dirty and breaks down over time, it's critical to change it regularly to ensure that your engine continues to run smoothly as you drive around Warwick, RI.

When Do I Need to Schedule an Oil Change?

Most vehicles need an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles or so. Your car might warn you when it's due for an oil change, but we highly recommend staying on top of your vehicle's service schedule to ensure peak performance. If you're not sure if your car is due for an oil change, our team can help you figure out when to schedule service.
