The Importance of an Oil Change Service

An oil change service is a regular maintenance item, but "regular" isn't just for show. Your vehicle's engine is composed of countless moving parts that dance in harmony through every moment it's running. Movement creates friction, and friction creates heat, along with wear and tear. Oil negates that heat and wear and keeps everything running smoothly. Without it, or if the oil breaks down over time, problems from reduced fuel efficiency to a mechanical catastrophe may be imminent.

When Is an Oil Change Service Required?

Typically, you'll be given an interval for both time and mileage to have your next oil change in Jacksonville, FL, performed. Your owner's manual also will contain information on when to get it done, and your vehicle may have a dashboard light to indicate it is needed. However, oil can chemically break down over time, especially if you drive the vehicle infrequently or only for short trips. It can also be affected by temperature fluctuations, road conditions, and more.

So, here are some warning signs your vehicle may give that can indicate an oil change service is urgently needed:

  • Your VW oil change reminder light has turned on
  • Your vehicle's engine makes unusual noises, or is louder than normal
  • You can smell a burning scent coming from the engine
  • Your engine oil dipstick is covered in a dark brown color instead of a light amber color

An Oil Change Service Can Vary

If you've seen the countless bottles at an auto parts store or oil change shop, or if you're curious about what "manufacturer-recommended" oil means, here's what you need to know.

The first factor between different oil types is viscosity. Labels you may see, such as "5W-30," refer to the oil's viscosity at varying temperatures. Getting the correct grade for your vehicle is absolutely crucial. The second factor is the chemical composition, which is divided into conventional and synthetic types.

Synthetic oil is the manufacturer-recommended type for a VW vehicle, and the reasons it is recommended over conventional are as follows:

  • It has a longer oil change interval
  • It handles high temperatures more effectively
  • It flows more efficiently in cold temperatures
  • It resists chemical breakdown over time more effectively
  • It can increase fuel economy

The only downside to synthetic oil is that it costs a bit more. But, with our VW service coupons that can be a moot point, and you'll enjoy all the benefits for a great price.
