Motor oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle’s engine. Motor oil lubricates the engine, preventing excessive wear, keeping it cool, and ensures that it is intact and sealed properly. Without regular oil changes, your vehicle is susceptible to debilitating engine troubles, inefficient fuel economy, and compromised safety.

Motor Oil & Your Vehicle
When Should I Get My Oil Changed?
- Always change your oil according to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended schedule
- Choose the best motor oil based on your vehicle type, age, and expected driving conditions
- Consider full synthetic or synthetic blend motor oil for gas savings and longer vehicle life
In addition to when, customers also want to know what kind of motor oil is right for their vehicle. Today’s full synthetic and synthetic-mineral blends are excellent for tough conditions such as stop-and-go driving, frequent trips, and towing. For engine fills and top-offs, they are considered equivalent or superior to conventional oil. In fact, many manufacturers specify synthetic oil for newer car and truck models. Consult your owner’s manual for oil specifications and a maintenance schedule. Or, speak to your service technician about the best type and weight of oil for your vehicle and driving conditions.
