Oil & Filter Change

An Oil and Filter change is a routine maintenance procedure that involves draining the old engine oil and replacing it with fresh oil, along with replacing the oil filter.
An Oil and Filter change is important because it helps to remove contaminants and debris from the engine oil that can cause engine wear and damage. Fresh oil also helps to lubricate the engine and reduce friction, which can improve engine performance and fuel efficiency.
An Oil and Filter change can be performed by a professional mechanic or by the owner of the vehicle.
The recommended interval for changing the Oil and Filter varies by vehicle and is typically specified in the owner’s manual. In general, the Oil and Filter should be changed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles or every 6-12 months.
To perform an Oil and Filter change, the vehicle must be raised and supported, the oil drain plug removed to drain the old oil, and the oil filter removed and replaced. The new filter is installed, the drain plug is reinstalled, and the new oil is added to the engine through the oil filler cap. It is important to use the correct type and amount of oil specified by the vehicle manufacturer and to properly dispose of the old Oil and Filter.
