Streamlining the Oil Change Process

These days, the process of getting an oil change often starts with a Google search for "oil change near me." Save yourself some time and skip your digital scavenger hunt. We've streamlined the process to make oil changes easier and hassle-free.

Even if you know nothing about cars, you've likely heard about the importance of regular oil changes every 3 months or 3,000 miles. This has been the golden standard for years - until seasonal oil changes.

Advancements in the Automotive Industry

You see, over the years there have been amazing advancements within the automotive industry. Engines are much more efficient and the use of synthetic oil has made it so cars are extending time between oil changes and vehicles are running cleaner for longer.

Even with those advancements, you can’t expect your car to operate at its best if you wait 10 months to get an oil change. Bottom line is the longer oil sits, the less viscous it becomes. That means it’s thinner and cannot lubricate your car parts effectively.

Synthetic oil is designed to break down more slowly, but it is still impacted by your daily driving. Most people are driving further and more frequently than ever before. Your oil will degrade over time - do not use advancements in technology as an excuse to neglect your car or you will surely pay for it in the long run.

Personalized Maintenance Needs

To be clear, it is important to check your vehicle’s owner’s manual for precise oil change guidelines. Each car will naturally have its own maintenance needs and requirements. However, if you’re like most people, you’ve never even opened the first page. No judgment!

We’ve come up with an easier way to remember your maintenance appointments so you don’t have to worry about digging through manuals and complex documents.

Simplifying Maintenance with Seasonal Oil Changes

Here’s an easier way to remember your oil changes: change your oil with the seasons! If you’re visiting our shop in Wilton, a beautiful town within Fairfield County, Connecticut, you’re likely living in the area. Fortunately, New England has a built-in interval system you can follow. Whether you're in Redding, Norwalk or Weston, this trick can work for you! Even if you're one of our New York or New Jersey customers, this method can come in handy.

Avoiding Excessive Oil Changes

Companies like Valvoline and Jiffy Lube often follow the outdated 3000 miles rule for oil changes. While these places may appear convenient, there's a high chance that they recommend more oil changes than your vehicle actually requires. By using this approach, you can avoid changing your oil too often; which will do nothing but drain your wallet. Likewise, you can avoid forgetting about your oil all together. And yes, we do see this often with the cars we service.
