Oil And Filter Changes At Sewell Subaru

Oil changes are one of the most common routine maintenance issues drivers will come across. Whether you prefer to have your car's oil changed performed by a trained technician or you love to do your own oil change in your Dallas garage, you'll want to learn more about what an oil change is and why it's important.

What Is An Oil Change?

The easiest description of an oil change is the act of replacing the engine's oil and filter with a new filter and oil. As the oil in your car is pushed around the engine, it does three things: lubricates, cools, and cleans. Over time, the oil will become dirty and weaken by becoming too thin or too thick. Dirty oil that's left unchanged will result in a larger, and more expensive, engine issue, so don't delay when it's time to have your oil and filter changed.

Frequently Asked Questions About Oil Changes

As with any type of car maintenance or repair, there are many different parts and processes involved with an oil change. To help our Arlington area drivers, here are a few answers to some of the most frequently asked oil change questions.

When Should I Change My Oil?

Most newer cars will alert you when your oil requires changing. Of course, it's good to know when that time may arrive. The timeline of an oil change depends on the type of vehicle you're driving, what type of roads you drive on, and the age of your car. A typically suggested timeline is about 5,000 to 7,500 miles, but you can find the specific recommended timeline in your car's owner's manual.

How Much Does an Oil Change Cost?

The price of an oil and filter change depends on the type of vehicle you have and the type of oil you use. If you're using conventional oil, the price will most likely be between $35 and $75. If you're using synthetic oil, the price will most likely be between $65 and $125.

Should I Used Conventional or Synthetic Oil?

This all depends on the type of engine your vehicle has. What's the difference between conventional and synthetic oil? Conventional oil is refined from crude oil, has a shorter life, and is the less expensive option. Synthetic oil is man-made with chemical compounds, has a longer life, costs more, but is said to be better for your vehicle.

How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

If you're just getting an oil change, without any inspections or services, an oil change should take about 30 minutes or so. Of course, this all depends on your car, oil, and service center. Contact the service center to get a better idea of a time estimate.

Can I do My Own Oil Change?

Yes! Oil changes are one of the easiest car maintenance items to perform from your Irving home. Make sure to purchase the right tools, equipment, oil, and filter before you begin.
