How Often Should I Get an Oil Change?

Old motor oil breaks down after a few thousand miles and can no longer properly protect your engine. Motor oil is paramount to maintain a healthy operating vehicle. Motor oil lubricates your engine while filtering out byproducts from internal engine pistons and cylinders. Motor oil also helps remove dirt and dust from your engine's air-intake system.

Just like an air filter, motor oil eventually gets filthy from constantly having to remove contaminates from your engine. It will start to oxidize and thicken and becomes ineffective. How often you need to change your oil depends on what grade oil you use, driving conditions, and type of car.

Technicians will typically post a sticker on your windshield telling you when to change your oil. However, a good rule of thumb is to change your oil at least every 4,000 miles.  

What Is the Difference Between Synthetic and Conventional Oil?

Conventional oil is developed directly from crude oil. Although it provides lubrication for your engine, synthetic oil lasts longer and provides better performance. Synthetic oil is modified from conventional oil, but is modified to perform better than traditional conventional oil.

Synthetic oil is a better lubrication for your engine at higher temperatures, so it lasts longer than conventional oil. It is engineered to maintain an optimum viscosity at higher temperatures, so your car performs better. Synthetic oil protects your engine from breakdowns while emitting fewer deposits on pistons, cylinders, and gears.  

How Often Should I Get a Tire Rotation?

Tire rotations ensure that each tire gets even wear and tear, so they will last longer and perform better. We recommend you get a tire rotation every 6,000 miles. While we  perform a tire rotation, we'll also check your tire pressure for adequate PSI.  

How Often Should I Schedule a Service?

Every 3,000 miles, you should stop by for a tune up at AutoStar CDJR of Hendersonville. If you are not auto savvy, you will need help changing your oil and monitoring your tire pressure. Take your car into our shop at this interval for several services, including an oil and filter change, air filter inspection, and tire pressure check.
