Whether you own a Buick, Chevy, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Honda, Jeep, Nissan, Ram or Toyota oil changes on a regular basis is a crucial part of keeping your vehicle in safe, working order for as long as possible.

Waiting too long between oil changes on your vehicle can cause the engine to overheat and can lead to a build-up of dirt and broken-down oil sludge around your engine. These problems force your engine to work harder and can cause corrosion and other more severe engine damage over time. It’s always best to stay on top of your car, SUV or Truck’s oil changes here at Diamond Buick GMC in Alexandria, Minnesota. Our highly trained & certified technicians will have you in and out in under an hour on your next oil change!

How To Best Maintain Your Vehicle’s Engine Oil

Engine Wear

WHAT CAUSES ENGINE WEAR

An engine contains thousands of moving parts, like valves, pistons, camshafts, and so on. These parts require proper lubrication in order to function properly and prevent damage. The chemical compounds found within engine oil help give these parts sufficient lubrication, but over time, they wear down and are less effective. An oil change, which drains old oil and replaces with fresh new oil, helps to keep an engine properly lubricated.

Oil Dipstick

HOW TO CHECK OIL LEVEL

It’s a good idea to periodically check your oil level. In order to get an accurate reading, engine must be off and vehicle on level ground. Accuracy improves when checking a cold engine (off for two hours) prior to starting. If unable to wait two hours, the engine must be off for at least 15 minutes if the engine is warm, or at least 30 minutes if the engine is not warm. Always consult your vehicle Owner’s Manual for the proper procedure to check your oil level.

Oil Monitoring System

WHEN TO REPLACE OIL

Years ago, engine oil changes were typically prescribed at a set interval, which was usually based upon mileage. However, those intervals aren’t the best means to determine if a car, SUV or truck truly needs an oil change. As no two drivers are alike, vehicles can be subjected to a wide range of conditions, even if they’ve traveled the same number of miles. That’s where your Oil Life Monitoring System comes into play letting you know how much life is left in your vehicle.
