Oil Change at DCH Tustin Acura

 

Get Your Next Oil Change near Cerritos With Us

Outside of the gas in your tank and the tires attached to your wheels, there is no aspect more important to keep track of than your motor oil. Motor oil can be the trickiest to keep track of since it's so easy to forget about and procrastinate on. However, clean oil is vital to the long term health of your car, truck, van, or SUV, so if it's been a while since your last change, it's time to come and see us.

Know Your Oil Types

 

Not all motor oil is the same, so it's important to know which one is right for you, which in many cases, is based on the age and mileage of your vehicle. Typically, when Mission Viejo, Anaheim, and Costa Mesa drivers go in for an oil change, it usually means you're going to get conventional motor oil put into your car. For most drivers, conventional motor oil is perfectly fine and will last you between 3,000-5,000 miles, depending on your vehicle.

 

For those who want more out of their oil, we recommend looking at synthetic-blend or full synthetic oil options. These oil options are typically used for high mileage engines as they contain additives that reduce friction to help keep the engine from being worn down as quickly. Synthetic-blend oil needs to be changed out every 7,500 miles, while full synthetic can last over 10,000 miles. These oil changes, as you might expect, are more expensive, but you will be able to go longer in between oil changes than with conventional.

When It's Time to Change Your Oil

 

Unless you still have that old sticker that the previous Orange County mechanic wrote down the mileage at which you need your next oil change, it can be hard to know when it's time to get your vehicle in. The first way to do this is by popping the hood and checking the color of your oil from the dipstick. Your oil is supposed to be amber in color, but if you notice that it's darkened, it means that dirt has collected in it and it's time to change.
