Oil Change at Liccardi CDJR

Oil Changes at Liccardi Chrysler Dodge Ram : One of the Smartest Choices You Can Make for your Vehicle

There's a lot that goes into caring for your car in the long run, but ask any mechanic worth their salt from Green Brook to Piscataway, and they'll undoubtedly tell you that one of the most important things you can do is have your oil changed regularly.

Now, if you've been driving for a while, chances are you've had the importance of an oil change impressed on you on at least a few occasions, but if you're not a seasoned gearhead, you may be wondering why it's so important, how often you should have it done, and even what you get out of having your oil changed. Fortunately, as a Mopar certified service center that's been working with Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, and Jeep Brand owners from Bridgewater to Plainfield, NJ, that's something we're more than well-equipped to help you explore.

What's the point of getting my vehicle's oil changed?

Well, that's the million-dollar question, now isn't it? The fact of the matter is, unless you're driving an electric car these days, any car, truck, or SUV you own is going to need an oil change at some point.

You see, your engine powers your vehicle, but it also generates quite a bit of heat. To mitigate that heat, and prevent contaminants and buildup from the combustion process from reaching critical levels in your engine, oil constantly circulates through it to transfer heat away from sensitive components and keep your engine clean and running efficiently.

However, just as you need to replace your vehicle's tires when they get worn down, the oil in your engine can get "worn down" with time and use. Only in this case, "worn down" can mean saturated with contaminants, viscous, and ultimately ineffective. If left unchecked, an engine without oil or an engine with spent oil will eventually break down, and trust us when we say that can be a costly problem to fix.

On the other hand, when you have the oil in your Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, or Jeep Brand vehicle replaced regularly, you'll enjoy better fuel efficiency, a quieter engine, and a lot fewer problems that require maintenance in the long run.

How often do I need to change my vehicle's oil?

That all depends on the make, model, and age of your vehicle, as well as the driving conditions and the type of oil you use.

With some older models that use conventional oil, you may want to stick to the old rule of thumb and adhere to a 3,000 to 5,000-mile oil change interval. Some newer models that use synthetic oil may go as far as 7,500 to 10,000-miles between oil changes, but it's always best to consult your owner's manual or a certified Mopar technician to find out how often you should change your oil.

It also stands to be mentioned that if you drive your vehicle in stressful conditions, that can effect how often you need to change the oil. For example, many Ram truck drivers who tow heavy loads will find their engines working harder, thus putting the oil under more stress and shortening their oil change intervals.
