Signs It's time For an Oil Change

While regular oil changes are essential to vehicle maintenance, understanding the signs your car exhibits when an oil change is needed can enhance preventative care and peace of mind. At Christian Brothers Automotive Blendon Woods, we believe in empowering car owners. Here are key indicators that your car needs a fresh lubrication treatment.

Common signs your car needs an oil change:

  • Extended oil change intervals: Ignoring manufacturer-recommended oil change intervals or exceeding the time frame between services can lead to oil degradation and decreased lubrication.
  • Low oil level: Regularly monitoring your oil level and taking action if it dips below the acceptable range signals the need for immediate attention.
  • Dashboard warnings: Illuminated oil change or engine warning lights on your dashboard are clear visual cues from your car's diagnostic system.
  • Increased engine noise: Knocking, ticking, or grinding sounds emanating from the engine can indicate insufficient lubrication and potential wear.
  • Rough engine performance: If your engine feels sluggish, vibrates excessively, or hesitates during acceleration, it could be a symptom of dirty or ineffective oil.
  • Reduced fuel efficiency: A noticeable drop in fuel mileage can indicate increased friction within the engine due to worn-out oil.
  • Dark and dirty oil: Checking your oil dipstick and seeing dark brown or black, gritty oil is a definitive indicator of oil degradation and the need for immediate replacement.
  • Engine leaks: Puddles or oil spots under your parked car suggest a leak, necessitating an oil change and a thorough inspection to identify the source.

Remember, proactively responding to these signs with timely oil changes can significantly extend your engine's lifespan, prevent costly repairs, and optimize your car's performance and fuel efficiency.
