An oil change is the most common of all car maintenance procedures, and for good reason. As the lifeblood of your vehicle, it helps keep your engine running smoothly and efficiently. At Joe’s Service Department in Indianapolis, we perform oil changes on lightweight and standard sized cars and trucks to help extend the life of their engines. If you’ve gone over your car’s recommended mileage without services, stop at our auto repair shop today, or contact us directly at (317) 405-8456 to schedule an appointment.
Unnecessary Engine Wear
If it’s been a while since you changed the oil, you may experience an unpleasant surprise for the next road trip. Perform a quick check about once a month to avoid any engine issues. Essentially, changing your oil every 3,000 miles (check your owner‘s manual here for recommended interval) prevents dirt buildup in your engine to keep things running smoothly. As this dirt circulates, the vehicle might undergo the following issues:
- Low fuel economy
- High emissions
- Very poor engine performance
- Unnecessary engine wear, especially in the valves
Getting an oil change more frequently will ensure that your car is running well and expand the life of the vehicle, with very little dirt accumulation to cause damage. We also recommend you change your filter just as frequently to reduce debris buildup even further.
Should I Change Oil Myself?
Although it is relatively simple to change your oil, it can also be a headache for the average car owner. To do it yourself, you’ll need a plethora of tools, a completely flat surface without motorist traffic (for safety), knowledge of car parts, and — perhaps the most important of all — a legal place to dump the old oil when drained. Instead of the hassle, come to Joe’s for a full-service, cheap oil change in Indianapolis. We have the tools and experience to get you in and out in no time, and you won’t have to worry about getting your hands dirty.
