The Importance of Oil Changes in Lethbridge

You've heard it before and you'll hear it again - changing your oil frequently is a sure fire way to keep your engine healthy and your car happy - but just what does that mean? Well, for starters, you have to consider what type of driver you are, for example, do you drive every day? Are you using your vehicle for heavy labour or are you keeping it inside, away from the harsh elements, only to be used on spotless blue sky days? All of these points will have an effect on your oil and its quality.

In a recent article published in Scientific American, the topic was explored with some depth - pointing out that, "[some] chains usually recommend it be done every three months or 3,000 miles, but many mechanics would tell you that such frequent changes are overkill. Indeed, most car owner's manuals recommend changing out the oil less frequently, usually after 5,000 or 7,500 miles." It goes on to point out that reputable sites such as Edmunds refer to driving habits as being the #1 oil-change-frequency culprit.

So, just how often do you need to change your oil? Well, what are your driving habits? The equation doesn't require a lot of mental math if you remind yourself that the more you drive the more you should be changing your oil - but it's always recommended that you speak with a certified technician, like those you will find at McDonald Nissan, to get a better idea of a schedule that reflects your driving style. Nissan suggests, for example, being considerate of standard maintenance expectations every 8,000 kilometres or every 6 months, whichever comes first.

In a similar manner, the type of oil that you are using will also factor into your frequency - with regular, blended, and synthetic oils available, the specifics do start to become a little more calculated when you add them all up. All the same - keeping an eye on your oil change frequency and scheduling your oil changes in a regular fashion is always a good preventative measure for improved fuel economy and an engine that's running under optimum conditions.
