HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU GET AN OIL CHANGE
With a car as luxurious as an INFINITI, you want to make sure that you keep it performing at its best. One of the easiest ways to do this is by getting a regular oil change. Unfortunately, getting an oil change can be one of those tasks that often get overlooked, but you want to make sure that you never forget about them! They are crucial to protecting the life and longevity of your vehicle and making sure that it is in optimal condition.We here at INFINITI of TUCSON like to think of getting an oil change like a seasonal "spring cleaning" for your engine. It is important to deep clean your home every so often to make sure that dirt, gunk, and grime doesn't continue to build up, making even more difficult for the next time you go and try to clean up. An oil change is the same way. After time, gunk and sludge can build up, compromising the quality and efficiency of your engine and the overall life of your car.A lot of people may not realize how important it is, but oil is one of the most important aspects of your engine. It lubricates the engine to make sure that parts do not rub together or damage each other. It also acts as a cooling agent and prevents the engine from overheating. Overtime, exposure to air, heat, and moisture causes the oil to oxidize. Oxidation of the oil makes it thick and sludge-like. Along with not lubricating the engine properly, the thick, corrosive oil also leads to more damage to the engine, resulting in repairs that cost way more than a simple oil change.
Many people claim that you should get your oil changed every 3,000-5,000 miles. While this may be true for some cars, it is not true for all cars. Be sure to check your owner's manual to find out how often it is recommended for your vehicle's oil to be changed.If your car is ready for its next oil change, be sure to check out INFINITI of TUCSON's Service Specials to see if there are any current specials to save you money on your next oil change.
