There are many things vehicle owners can do to take care of their cars, trucks, and SUVs. One of the more important tasks is bringing your vehicle to a professional service station for a regular oil change. Below, we'll explain some of the biggest reasons for getting an oil change, how to know when it's time for an oil change, and why you should bring your vehicle to Planet Ford Dallas if you live in this area. If it's time for you to get an oil change, schedule a service appointment today!
There are several benefits to getting regular oil change service for your vehicle. The biggest benefit is better vehicle performance. Vehicle engines are complicated machinery, and everything needs to operate smoothly to get the best performance. Over time, engine oil degrades as it becomes contaminated with dust and other debris. Replacing this engine oil with new oil can help return your vehicle to optimal performance.
Regular oil changes can also help you save on repair costs. Poor engine oil quality can lead to poor performance, and if you leave it unattended for too long, it can cause damage to your engine. Since engine damage is some of the most costly to repair, you'll want to avoid this as best you can with regular oil changes.
Finally, oil changes can help improve the resale value of your vehicle. When it comes time to sell or trade in your car, you want it to have a high value. Many things determine the value of a vehicle but its maintenance history is a primary factor. Regular oil changes keep your car in great shape, which will help you get more for it when you decide to sell.
While every vehicle is different, it's typically recommended that you get an oil change service every few thousand miles. For newer Ford vehicles, the recommended interval is every 7,500 miles, while you should get an oil change every 5,000 miles if your Ford vehicle was manufactured before 2008. You can check your owner's manual for the specific requirements of your car.
If you're unsure when you got your last oil change, it's a good idea to schedule one soon. When you get an oil change, you'll receive a window sticker that informs you of when to get your next oil change so that you don't forget again.
You may also want to schedule an oil change if you're experiencing any performance issues with your vehicle. For example, if you find that you're having trouble accelerating or if you notice odd smells/noises coming from under the hood, this could indicate that you need an oil change. Bring your vehicle to a trusted service center and ask them to perform a full inspection of your vehicle to determine the problem. With any luck, a simple oil change will fix everything.
When you bring your vehicle to Planet Ford Dallas, our oil change service includes a few things. First, we'll drain your vehicle of its current engine oil and replace it with the premium engine oil that's right for your vehicle. There are many types of engine oil available and we'll select the best one for your vehicle, based on its age, mileage, engine, and other factors.
After we replace the engine oil, we'll inspect other important engine components. We'll advise you on whether or not you should replace any of your air filters or engine filters, which are also important for a healthy vehicle. If you need new filters, we can replace them simultaneously with your oil change, saving you time and money.
Oil changes are fairly simple but are still best left to a professional service station. Rather than climbing under the vehicle yourself or worrying about how to dispose of your old engine oil safely, we can handle all of this for you. Save yourself the hassle and keep your vehicle in great shape by scheduling an oil change service with Planet Ford of Dallas today.
