Oil Changes and Routine Maintenance | Service Center at Graff Chevrolet in Bay City
At the Graff Chevrolet Service Center in Bay City, we know the importance of routine maintenance. We also know that if getting your vehicle serviced is difficult and unpleasant, it is unlikely that you will stick to a vehicle maintenance schedule. To help you take care of a your car and enjoy the service experience as much as possible, we make getting an oil change a quick and simple process.
Getting a regular oil change will improve your vehicle’s overall performance, as well as extend the life of the engine – it is essentially the life-blood of your vehicle, which is why it’s imperative that you regularly change it. Engine oil lubricates and removes heat from the internal engine components. As the oil passes through the filter, it is the filter’s job to remove the harmful deposits from recirculating. If the harmful deposits aren’t removed, your engine may perform poorly and eventually break down. The general rule of thumb is to have your oil changed every 3,000-5,000 miles to keep your engine healthy.
If you decide to add engine oil yourself, make sure you follow the manufacturer’s recommendation for the weight, grade, and type of oil to use. Using different oil other than what is recommended by the manufacturer may void your manufacturer’s warranty. If you aren’t sure what kind of engine oil you should be using, feel free to contact one of our service experts – they would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
