Oil Change

Oil Change FAQs in Hendersonville, NC

We all know that the oil in our cars need to be changed periodically. But do you know why oil changes are important, or what the difference is between conventional and synthetic oil? Many drivers don’t know the answers to these questions and sometimes forget to ask their service advisor, so we're addressing them below. Keep reading to learn the answers to your oil change questions.

What's the difference between synthetic and conventional oil?

Synthetic oil, unlike conventional oil, is refined and distilled. This breaks the oil down into individual molecules that meet the demands of some modern engines more efficiently. In addition, synthetic oils boast better performance and protection than conventional oils.

How often should you change the oil in your vehicle?

Typically, you should change your oil anywhere between 5,000 to 10,000 miles. With all of the synthetic oils available, many cars can drive a longer distance with the same oil. As always, talk to your service technician about what's best for your vehicle.

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

If you change your own oil, props to you because it's not easy. It's a messy task and takes time out of your day. Plus, you need to provide the supplies yourself. So, if you're uncomfortable changing oil yourself, it's much easier to trust our expert technicians to do it quickly and correctly.
