Frequently Asked Questions About Oil Changes

As one of the most common routine maintenance items, the oil change is a frequent topic of conversation at our service center. To help any of our Flemington, Clinton, or beyond drivers with their oil change questions, here are a few answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about the simple oil change.

  • Why Do I Need an Oil Change?

    The engine's oil degrades with use, causing it to stop performing as it should. If left unchanged, this will lead to a much bigger (and more expensive) engine repair.

  • When Should I Get an Oil Change?

    Most vehicles recommend between 7,500 to 10,000 miles, but you should check your car's owner's manual to see the specific recommended timeline.

  • What Happens During an Oil Change?

    The technician will drain the old oil and pull out the dirty filter. Once completely empty, a new filter and fresh oil will be inserted.

  • Can I Just Top Off the Oil Instead of Doing a Full Oil Change?

    If you're in an emergency situation, yes. If not, it's recommended to have a full oil change performed. The clean oil shouldn't mix with the old, dirty oil, so it's better just to replace it.

  • Can I Change My Own Oil?

    Absolutely! You just need to make sure that you have the right tools, parts, and space to complete the task. Talk to our technicians to learn more about what you need.
