Keeping your Toyota running without a hitch requires regular trips to a mechanic you can trust. Sometimes the local options are best suited for your needs, so why not put the care of your vehicle in the hands of the expert technicians here at Ourisman Fairfax Toyota? From oil changes to in-depth repairs, we've got the tools and parts you need to ensure your Toyota's longevity! Take a look down below for some information on oil changes and why they are important!

Why are Oil Changes Necessary?

Engine oil provides the lubrication for your engine by keeping the movie parts well-lubricated and helping to reduce heat buildup as you drive. Without routine oil changes, the oil will start to wear down and lose effectiveness over time. This can lead to serious damage to your engine, leaving you with an expensive repair bill that could be easily avoided.

Signs that You Need an Oil Change

While we recommend routine oil changes, you might not always have the time to hold to a specific schedule. Thankfully, there are signs you can watch out for that will indicate it is time for an oil change appointment. These indicators may include:

  • Your Engine Oil is Dark Brown or Black, or the Level is Low
  • Your Check Engine Light is On
  • Your Exhaust is Producing Large Amounts of Smoke
  • Loud Knocking Noise coming from Engine
  • Decrease in Vehicle Performance and Efficiency

If you notice any of these signs occurring, we recommend you reach out to our team and make an appointment as soon as possible.

How Often Should You Get an Oil Change?

Typically, our service team recommends that you get an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, but this number can fluctuate based on different factors. You might need one sooner rather than later if you deal with colder or warmer temperatures, as well as when you idle in heavy traffic. You might also find that some synthetic engine oil blends don't need regular oil changes as often, allowing you to drive further before your next appointment.
