What is an oil change?

This basic element of car ownership happens when your service technician drains oil from your vehicle's engine and replaces it with fresh oil. This is to remove the ineffective oil that has lost its ability to provide protection and add in new oil to replace it.

Why do I need an oil change?

This is a common question that we hear a lot from our Haverhill, Andover, Methuen, Lawrence, MA, Salem, NH customers. An oil change is an integral part of owning a vehicle, because oil provides lubrication and protection to the pistons, valves, and other moving parts, and keeps debris from harming your vehicle. As your vehicle uses the oil, it becomes thicker and doesn't perform as well, which is why removing it often and replacing it with fresh oil maintains your vehicle's longevity.

How often do I need an oil change?

For each vehicle, this can be different, however for many Toyota models, the standard is 5,000 miles, or every 6 months. Your owner's manual can give you a definite answer, but our service team is always ready to answer any of your questions.

How can I tell if I need an oil change?

One way is to check your oil level, because as you use oil, your vehicle's oil level drops. You can also check the color of the oil on your dipstick to see whether it is a nice transparent brown color, or if it is beginning to turn dark and thick. If your previous oil change wasn't documented or posted on your windshield with a handy sticker, you can tell by a light on your dashboard that says maintenance is required, or you may notice your engine sounding rougher than usual.
