The Benefits of An Oil Change

January 10th, 2020 by

Everybody who owns a vehicle knows they must get an oil change at some point, but not everybody knows exactly what goes into that whole process or even why oil changes are necessary. As your Chevrolet dealer in San Diego, we want our customers to own and drive their vehicles for as long as they desire, and oil changes are a big part of what makes that possible.

The benefits of an oil change including the following:

Better fuel efficiency
Fewer emissions
Longer engine life
A cleaner engine
Enhanced vehicle performance.

And while each of these should be more than enough to encourage drivers in and around La Mesa, CA to take their vehicles in for oil and filter changes according to their vehicle’s Chevy service schedule, another important reason to do so is for the multi-point inspection that comes with every oil change service.

These inspections are conducted by GM technicians certified to detect exactly when something looks awry with your vehicle, which is why they start by looking at exterior issues like tire tread depth and pattern, wiper blades, and headlights to determine if any of them need replacement.

Because of their specific training, these technicians also can conduct diagnostic tests of major automotive systems like brakes, fluid levels, battery levels, and more—all as a means of making sure your vehicle runs as smoothly as possible for as long as possible.

Your vehicle will alert you when it’s time for an oil and filter change, and we strongly suggest you heed those notifications to ensure the long-term health of your Chevrolet automobile. These cars, trucks, and SUVs are built to last, but part of that responsibility falls on the vehicle’s owner to ensure the service schedule is followed.
