Two inevitable maintenance tasks that you will need to get completed for your car are oil changes and oil filter replacements. While these tasks will need to be done on a regular basis, they are two of the fastest and cheapest tasks you can do to keep your car healthy and your wallet happy. So, if you are looking for the best place to get an oil and filter change near Washington DC, look no further than Sheehy Auto Stores.
Oil is the bloodline of every vehicle that runs on gasoline. It lubricates the engine so that metal components do not damage one another. As oil ages and circulates, it will begin to break down, reducing the amount of lubrication it provides. Additionally, oil can collect debris over time, which can be seen by the way it turns darker in color. While the oil filter will collect the grime and dirt that enters the oil, it may not capture everything. Not only that, but as the oil filter gets dirtier, it will gradually lose its effectiveness. As a result, it’s important to stay on top of your oil and filter changes on a regular basis. For conventional oil, drivers should plan on changing their oil every 3,000 miles or 3 months, whichever comes first. For synthetic, we recommend every six months or every 5,000-7,500 miles. Oil filters should be changed every 5,000 miles.
