Oil Change in Felton
Oil change frequency will vary depending on type of oil used and your personal driving habits. If you drive your vehicle infrequently, on short trips to the grocery store, you should still change your oil twice a year since the oil degrades over time. Oil becomes less effective as it ages and by not getting the engine warm enough on short trips, excess moisture that forms in the engine will not be removed which can lead to shorter engine life.
Today's engines are designed and built to exacting standards and require oils that meet very specific industry and automaker specifications to ensure a long service life. Proper oil requirements are detailed in your owners manual. Ernie's can also provide information on your vehicles recommended oil specifications.
