The Importance of Oil Changes


Many drivers hear from the time that they start driving that oil changes are important, but nobody ever really explains why. Our team at Jarrett Ford Dade City wants to change that, giving you all of the information so that you can make the best decision for your vehicle.


Signs You Need an Oil Change

While it is recommended that you get an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, there are sure signs that you are in need of an oil change. The easiest sign to figure out is if you have a dashboard light for it, but not all vehicles have that. If you notice strange noises from the engine, you check the oil and it is dark or dirty, you notice smoke coming out of the tailpipe, or you can smell oil in the cabin it is time to bring your vehicle to the shop.


What is Included in an Oil Change?

Our expert technicians will empty out the old oil, replace the oil filter, then put new oil in to help your vehicle run its best. Many people don’t know about the oil filter, but it is an essential part of the system that keeps the oil clean as it flows through your engine.


Why Do I Need an Oil Change?

Oil keeps your engine lubricated to reduce friction, heat, and damage while you are driving. Letting your oil go too long between changes will leave you with worse performance and can destroy your engine.
