If you use your vehicle a lot to get around Philadelphia, you probably keep track of the mileage on your vehicle. You need to keep an eye on how far you’ve driven because you don’t want to go too far on the current oil in your vehicle. You understand that oil changes are important to how your vehicle operates. So you stop in to auto shops at the right intervals to get that oil changed out. But have you ever thought about the quality of the oil change? Maybe not. An oil change is an oil change, right? Not exactly?
When it comes to anything on your vehicle, quality matters. For example, you don’t want to get new brake pads that are too cheap and inexpensive and don’t work well. You’ll have to fix them again sooner, right? The same can be said for your oil changes. Not just any oil will do. Low quality oil will go through your vehicle faster so you’ll need another oil change sooner. And your vehicle may not run as efficiently in the meantime.
So how do you know what kind of oil your vehicle takes? Your first line of defense is your owner’s manual. It will tell you what type of oil your vehicle requires. There may be a few different options and you can choose, but as long as you get something along those lines, you’ll be doing something good for your vehicle. Now that you know what kind of oil you need, you have to ensure that the auto shop uses it. If you stop into a quick oil change place because you are short on time, who knows what they are using. They might charge you for the convenience of a quick stop, but put substandard oil in your vehicle. Or they may try to charge you extra for expensive oil that you don’t really need. Remain informed as a driver and you can avoid these expenses and pitfalls.
