Oil Change near Me

To keep up with your car’s performance, it’s wise to schedule an oil change near me. With all the dust and debris lying on the roads near Lansing, East Lansing, and Williamston, Michigan, you’ll need to make sure you get this vital service done around the suggested intervals.

On this page, we’ll go over some basic things to know about oil changes and how LaFontaine Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Lansing can help you out. Plus, you’ll get more in-depth information by clicking the links on this page.

How Frequently Do I Need Oil Changes?

You know you need occasional oil changes, but do you know how often? If asked, some drivers may say, once a year and others may mention six months. Car manufacturers used to suggest every 3,000 miles, but cars can perform well longer than that these days. Usually, you’ll hear 5,000 miles or more and sometimes, 7,500 miles. If your car uses synthetic oil, it may be able to wait until around 10,000 miles.

Do I Really Need an Oil Change?

Yes, an oil change should be done when needed. The oil passes through many of the engine’s vital parts so that they move smoothly and allow the engine to do its job.

Once you’ve been running around in the car for a while, though, the oil tends to gather every little bit of matter from the road. This taints the performance and makes the oil dirty. If it goes too long without being changed, the oil can even be full of sludge.

Bring in your car and let our qualified service technicians look. They’ll see what’s going on under the hood, check the dipstick, and then change both the oil and the filter it goes through.

How Long Will I Wait During an Oil Change?

You’ve seen express oil change places, but we take it up a notch, because our skilled technicians know their stuff. They’re efficient and professional, and if they spot anything else out of place, they’ll let the customer know. Depending on how many tasks you add to the appointment, if it’s just an oil change, it will be quick and easy.

Should I Add the Oil Myself?

While some drivers know how to perform oil changes, adding oil does not count as an oil change. If you’re stuck and need the extra oil after checking the dipstick and seeing that it’s low, you could add oil until you drop off your car with us. Best case scenario: schedule an appointment on our website and leave it to the pros.
