Changing Your Oil

Why You Should Change Your Oil:

  • Smoother driving experience
  • Need to replace parts less often
  • Better Efficiency
  • Longer car life

Each car’s engine has many moving parts that need to run smoothly, and having fresh oil in your car is how you properly lubricate the parts of your engine for continued use. The parts move constantly when your car is running and will create friction without proper lubrication. Over time, the oil in your car will run out and you will need to replace it in order to keep your car’s engine from building up friction and causing damage. Every 3,000-5,000 miles, you should bring your car into our Toyota dealership in Chula Vista to replace your oil. Having a replenished oil tank will keep your car running at its best.

What Happens if You Don’t Change Your Oil?

When your oil runs out, there is no source of proper lubrication for your engine, causing the moving parts to build friction and cause damage. Eventually, this will lead to essential parts of your car needing to be replaced prematurely, leading to avoidable costs. When your car isn’t running smoothly, it reduces the efficiency as well, meaning you’ll need to make more trips to the gas pump. Overall, not changing your oil when you should reduces the life of your car and diminish your driving experience.

Dangers of Not Changing Your Oil:

  • Damage to car parts
  • Reduced efficiency
  • Reduced car life
  • Diminished driving experience
