The Benefits of an Oil Change at Sheridan Ford

If you’ve recently leased or purchased a vehicle at Sheridan Ford, whether it be new or new to you, you will need to routinely service it. One of the most important and easiest (and inexpensive) ways to keep your car running for years to come is to change the oil. Oil changes keep your engine running efficiently. Often, included with your oil change, the mechanic will change the oil filter as needed, check your other fluids, tire pressure, belts and hoses and even a courtesy inspection. An oil change is not just a simple way to take care of your sedan, SUV or truck, but could be a preemptive check to catch something before it becomes a larger issue.

So why exactly do you need an oil change? There are various moving parts in your engine, when they do their job, they create friction and heat. The oil lubricates these parts, reduces wear and tear, keeps them clean and mitigates the friction. This will keep dirt and any other debris out of the engine that may be trapped in the filter. A cleaner engine means your vehicle is emitting less exhaust and other by-product emissions. You will experience improved fuel economy and overall extend the life of your engine. As you can see, the benefits of a simple oil change are paramount. Cars are not an inexpensive investment; you want it to run for years to come.

Many mechanics suggest an oil change every 3,000 miles or three months — but many manufactures suggest every 5,000 miles. It really depends how often you drive and the conditions in which you drive. Refer to you owner’s manual, or your trusted personal mechanic, for a plan that works for your vehicle.
