How often do you need an oil change?

Having Express Oil Change & Tire Engineers change your vehicle's oil every 3,000 miles is the best way to protect your car, which is likely one of your largest investments.

In a survey by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), 90% of mechanics responded that an oil change every 3,000 miles is the most important service a driver can get to properly maintain their vehicle. Regardless of your vehicle’s age, or the type of oil it uses, keeping this practice is essential to conserve and extend the life of your vehicle.

Why is an oil change so important?

Motor oil lubricates the moving parts in order to reduce friction inside your engine. Oil is an essential component that helps to keep your engine clean and cool. In fact, your engine can only run for a few minutes without motor oil before excessive heat and friction cause serious damage. Having the right amount of clean oil in your vehicle helps your engine work as efficiently as possible and protects it from wear and tear.

What's the price of an oil change?

The cost of an oil change varies based on the type of oil (conventional, synthetic blend, full synthetic, diesel) as well as the amount of oil your vehicle requires. We'd recommend calling or stopping by your nearest Express Oil Change & Tire Engineers location for an accurate oil change quote for your vehicle.
