Oil is the Lifeblood of Your Vehicle’s Engine

If you’re like many drivers in the West Valley, you might not spend too much time learning about what oil does for your vehicle and why it’s so important. Your vehicle’s oil acts as a lubricant and keeps parts of your engine from rubbing against each other and causing friction. Oil also helps transfer heat away from your car’s engine. Your car’s oil reduces wear and tear and extends the lifespan of your engine. For these reasons, it’s crucial to have old oil removed after it loses its effectiveness. Let Champs Family Automotive replace it with new oil to keep your vehicle running at its best.

Reliable Oil Changes in the West Valley

With different sources telling you different things, it’s easy to become confused about how often your vehicle’s oil should actually be changed. That’s because the answer depends on the type of vehicle you drive and the type of oil you use. While every 3,000 miles used to be the standard, modern auto technology now calls for oil changes to be performed at intervals of somewhere between 5,000 and 7,500 miles. If your vehicle requires full-synthetic oil, you may be able to go about twice as long between oil changes. The best thing to do is to check your owner’s manual, and you can also contact us to help you determine the best schedule for your vehicle. Having your vehicle’s oil changed a little more often certainly won’t hurt, and the resulting savings from improved fuel economy can make frequent oil changes worthwhile investments.

Why Oil Changes Are So Important

You’ve probably heard that it’s critical to get your vehicle’s oil changed regularly, and knowing the reasons why can reinforce this importance. Not getting your oil changed on a regular schedule can come with a number of negative consequences. Your engine will overheat, causing it not to function at its peak, and potentially warping or corroding key components. Old oil can also lead to friction, which causes similar problems, and your vehicle’s engine will eventually stop working and need to be replaced. Having your engine replaced is a major expense that can be avoided by maintaining a regular oil change schedule with the trusted professionals at Champs Family Automotive in Goodyear & Surprise, AZ. The cost of having your engine replaced will far outweigh the minimal expense of getting your oil changed a few times a year.

Frequently Asked Questions about Oil Change

When should I get my oil changed?
We always encourage our customers to refer to their vehicles owner’s manual to see what oil should be used in your vehicle and how often the manufacturer recommends oil changes should be done. If you ever have a question about what oil to use and how often your oil needs to be changed you can always call and speak to one of our Service Advisors.
Why is engine oil milky brown?

If you have discovered your engine oil is milky brown we recommend getting it into Champs Family Automotive as soon as possible and use your best judgment and possibly tow the vehicle into the shop. Other fluid getting into your engine oil can cause catastrophic failure and very costly repairs.
How often to change oil filter?
Your oil filter should be changed every time you engine oil is replaced.
How much is an oil change?
In today’s modern society vehicle’s are not the same as they use to be. Today’s vehicle’s take all different types of oil and in some case different amounts of oil as well. It’s always best to contact us at Champs Family Automotive and give us your specific details of your vehicle i.e. year, make, and model to get an accurate estimate for your oil change.
How much is an RV oil change?
RV oil changes depend on the year, make and model of your RV and how much oil your RV takes.
Are RV oil changes any different than a car oil change?
Vehicle oil changes are somewhat standardized but RVs are nowhere near as standardized. Most motor homes have at least 2 different manufacturers you’re dealing with. The chassis has one manufacturer and the house another. Also, sometimes things are relocated from their original position or added as needed depending on what amenities your RV may have or stress and load put on the motor.
Why do you need to change your oil every 3000 miles?
Oil brakes down over time. Every time your vehicles cylinders fire there is a little bit of exhaust that leaks into your oil. These combustion gasses break down your vehicle’s oil which is why oil should be changed at manufacturer recommended intervals.
