Has your change oil light appeared on your Nissan car, SUV, or truck? Have you checked your oil recently and noticed that it's too low, dirty, or the wrong consistency? Has it been a while since you had your car's oil and filter changed? If you answered yes to any of these questions, we suggest scheduling an oil change appointment with our Fred Beans Nissan of Flemington team.

Why Does the Engine's Oil Need to Be Changed?

The oil in your car's engine works hard to accomplish three main goals: lubrication, cooling, and cleaning. Over time, the oil and filter will begin to degrade with use, causing the oil to become too thick or thin. When this occurs, the oil and filter will need to be replaced. The degraded oil or lack of oil will cause a more extensive engine failure if left unchanged. This is why you should never put off an oil change when your vehicle says it's time to schedule an appointment.

When Should I Change My Engine's Oil?

Most modern vehicles will alert you when the oil needs to be changed. Many models have an oil change timeline between 7,500 to 10,000 miles, depending on the type of vehicle you drive, where you drive, and what types of roads you use. It's also recommended to check your car's oil to see the level, thickness, and color.
