An oil change is one of the most important things you can do to keep your vehicle running smoothly on the roads of Sikeston. The standard rule of thumb is that your vehicle needs an oil change every 3 months or 3,000 miles, whichever comes first.
This holds true for most car owners and is an easy way to remember when you need an oil change. Check your manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule for the correct schedule and the best oil type (weight and viscosity) for your vehicle, or call our technicians at 573-471-0076.
The engine oil runs through your engine keeping all of the moving parts lubricated, reducing friction, and preventing damage to the other components. If you wait too long between oil changes, the motor oil becomes thick and dirty, almost like sludge. Old, contaminated oil can clog the system, cause added wear and tear, and damage components, leading to bigger problems with your engine.
Preventative maintenance, like regular oil changes, is the best way to keep your vehicle in its best condition and avoid damage with costly repairs. Every time you bring your vehicle into our auto repair shop in Sikeston, our technicians will perform a complementary inspection of the key systems. We’ll take the time to review these results with you so you know the exact condition of your vehicle. If your vehicle is due for other preventative services or is displaying warning signs for bigger problems, we’ll recommend the services available and help you make the best decision for your vehicle.
Keeping track of your oil changes can be challenging, so our technicians will track your maintenance for you! We’ll help you remember when it’s time for an oil change and other maintenance. We also keep records of the manufacturer recommendations for your vehicle so we always use the right oil type, weight, and filters for your vehicle.
