Oil changes are one of the most common maintenance tasks for a vehicle. Changing your oil helps remove the old oil, which becomes dirty from dust, dirt, and sludge, and can increase friction and reduce horsepower. At Christian Brothers Automotive Cimarron Hills, we offer a full range of products, including conventional, blend, and full-synthetic oil changes for whatever your engine requires, as stated in your owner's manual.

We can also include additives that will extend the lifespan of your oil changes. Lastly, each oil change includes a new oil filter, ensuring it stays clean and capable of removing future dirt and debris that may slow down your engine.

When to Get Your Oil Changed: Key Indicators

Recognizing the signs that your vehicle needs an oil change can prevent costly repairs and maintain engine performance.

Look out for these indicators:

  • Dark or Dirty Oil on the Dipstick: Fresh oil is amber in color and transparent. If the oil on your dipstick appears dark or dirty, it's a sign that it's time for an oil change.
  • Louder Engine Noise or Knocking: Clean oil helps lubricate engine components, reducing noise. If you hear louder engine noise or knocking sounds, it could indicate that your oil needs changing.
  • Oil Change or Check Engine Light is On: The oil change or check engine light illuminates when the engine's oil is dirty or low. If either of these lights is on, it's essential to schedule an oil change promptly.
  • Exhaust Smoke Appears Darker Than Usual: Darker-than-usual exhaust smoke can indicate that the engine is burning oil, which may be due to old or contaminated oil. Changing the oil can resolve this issue.
  • Oil Level is Consistently Low: If you need to top up your oil frequently, it may be a sign of a leak or that your oil is old and needs changing. Regularly checking your oil level can help determine if it's time for an oil change.

Regular oil changes are essential for maintaining the health and performance of your vehicle's engine. If you notice any of these signs, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment with us at Christian Brothers Automotive Cimarron Hills. Our technicians will ensure your vehicle receives the care it needs to continue running smoothly.

What is the Importance of an Oil & Filter Change

Many people are guilty of putting off oil changes because they don’t seem like a big deal, but clean oil and oil filters are essential in maintaining a healthy engine. Oil lubricates the multitude of moving parts within your engine, allowing it to run smoothly. Over time, oil breaks down and becomes gummy or watery, and doesn’t work as well. If left unchanged, old oil can cause expensive and inconvenient engine problems.

At Christian Brothers Automotive, we know oil and filter changes like the back of our hand. We will refill your oil levels and replace your oil filter. At that time, we will also offer a complimentary courtesy inspection to review the health and safety of your vehicle, where our experienced auto technicians visually inspect the major and minor systems within your vehicle.

Oil helps lubricate and cool the various parts of your engine, while reducing friction, diminishing wear, and forming a seal between the pistons, rings, and cylinder walls. Without the cleaning power of new oil & filters, carbon and particle buildup become toxic to the engine. This is why we recommend that you follow the interval as suggested in your owner's manual. Getting regular oil and filter changes is a small price to pay to avoid expensive engine repair or breakdown.

Benefits of oil changes include:

  • Improves gas mileage: your engine’s moving parts create friction and slow your vehicle down. Replacing dirty oil with cleaner oil reduces friction, meaning there is less resistance while driving, allowing you to get a few extra miles per gallon.
  • Reduces emissions: all automobiles produce pollution. You can reduce the harm you do to the environment by getting your oil changed regularly, as clean oil doesn’t burn.
  • Prevents sludge buildup: as oil runs through your engine, it accumulates debris and dirt particles. While your filters are designed to prevent sludge from entering your engine, some particles will slip through. Clean oil and oil filters keep your engine running smoothly and efficiently.
  • Improved performance: a well-lubricated engine allows you to experience a smooth ride while driving. Oil changes reduce friction in your engine, so clean oil provides the smoothest ride possible.
  • Preserves engine life: you can add years to your vehicle’s life with regular oil and filter changes. Maintaining a well-lubricated, cleanly filtered engine will ensure you get the most out of your vehicle–from gas mileage and performance to longevity of life.
