Why Are Oil Changes Important?

Getting an oil change is such a staple of car ownership that even non-drivers know how vital it is. It's especially important to make sure that you are getting an oil change for your Lincoln vehicle. That's for two reasons -- it helps protect your investment and ensures your vehicle's continued longevity on the road. Even if you are new to the ownership experience and the servicing process, or visiting our dealership from Mitchell or Harrisburg, our team can help answer any questions you may have about the purchasing process.

Why are oil changes so important?

Changing your oil is one of the most routine services you can get for your luxury vehicle. However, it's also one of the most important. When you drive your luxury vehicle around, your oil accrues dirt, grime, and sludge. It gathers slowly, but eventually it can cause problems for your vehicle's performance and longevity. For example, dirty oil can reduce your vehicle's fuel efficiency, costing you more at the pump. Additionally, dirty oil can increase friction inside your engine. This, in turn, creates more heat, which can irreparably damage your vehicle if not addressed in a timely manner.

Considering your luxury vehicle is an important investment, getting your oil changed is a vital part of the ownership and servicing process. Plus, our team of service technicians are perfectly qualified to assist you with this routine service. Schedule service or visit the express service lane without an appointment today.

When Should I Get An Oil Change?

The timetable of when you should get your oil changed depends on a few factors. In general, the rule of thumb is that your oil should be swapped out somewhere between 5,000 and 7,500 miles on the road. However, your make and model, driving habits, and oil type all play a factor in this. As such, it's important to make sure you are checking your user manual for the most specific information available.

When it comes to oil type, your engine is the most important factor. Here is a brief rundown of three types of engine oil:

  • Premium Conventional Oil: This oil type is standard is new cars. Vehicles with this type of oil generally need an oil change around every 4,000 miles (depending on other factors).

  • Full Synthetic Oil: You will generally find this type of oil in heavy-duty or high-tech engines. Your engine may not need this oil, as it's expensive and only suits certain needs.

  • Synthetic Blend Oil: As its name would suggest, this is a blend of synthetic and conventional oil. This type of oil is great for SUVs and trucks, and it's also less expensive than full synthetic oil.

  • Higher-Mileage Oil: Again, this oil's name gives away its purpose. This oil is intended for vehicles that have more miles on the odometer -- think above 75,000. This type of oil helps your vehicle last longer on the road.
