Oil Change FAQs in Gainesville, FL

Everyone knows it's important to change their vehicle's oil. But it's helpful to know why oil changes are important. Have you ever been curious about the difference between conventional and synthetic oil? Many drivers ask questions like this and sometimes forget to ask when talking to their service advisor. That's why we're addressing them. Continue reading to find out about oil changes.

What's the difference between synthetic and conventional oil?

Unlike conventional oil, synthetic oil is refined and distilled. This process breaks it down into individual molecules that are more capable of meeting the demands of modern engines. Plus, synthetic oils give better performance and protection than conventional oil.

How often should you change the oil in your vehicle?

Oil should be changed anywhere between 5,000 to 10,000 miles. With so many synthetic oils available, many vehicles can handle more miles on the same oil. Still, it's important to speak with your service technician about the right course of action for your vehicle.

Why should I bring my vehicle to the dealership to have my oil changed?
