The truth about oil changes

We all know that we need to change our engine oil and the oil filter in accordance to the manufacturer's scheduled maintenance calendar,which you can find in the "Maintenance" section of your car's owner's manual. We accept this as a maintenance requirement, but do we know why?

Oil acts as a lubricant for your engine, reducing wear, friction, and noise while forming a seal between the pistons, rings, and cylinder walls. Oil also acts as a cleanser, removing small particles from the components it contacts to keep things operating smoothly. When fresh oil isn't used to clean out the engine, buildup of varnish can occur, causing damage and proving to be toxic to your car. This is why we suggest you schedule an appointment as soon as you know when you will be needing an oil change.

Sometimes people forget or ignore their car's oil change schedule and this often proves to be detrimental. We offer service specials to help you afford the regular appointments, and with the help of the MyLithiaApp, you can remember when your car needs to be seen. We offer service videos to give you a better sense of what to expect while we are servicing your car, and here at Lithia Hyundai of Fresno our staff is trained to fix this brand of vehicle.They know the ins and outs of your car because they've studied to work on them.

Keep it serviced at the best place in the area to do so. We want you to enjoy your car for many years to come.
