Don't Forget to Change the Oil Filter

Fresh motor oil in a car's engine can keep it running smoothly for up to 100,000 miles or longer. To determine how often the oil should be changed, you can refer to your owner's manual. In most cases, you don't need to change it every 3,000 miles, and your vehicle may actually tell you when to get it done.

When the oil is changed, make sure to also have the oil filter changed with it. This can prevent dirt or other debris from mixing with the new oil. If contaminants do mix with fresh oil, it could lead to significant damage to the engine.

Changing the oil every 3,000 to 7,000 miles can prevent it from turning into a sticky goo that clogs up the engine. If you are ready for an oil change, contact Lithia Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat of Helena in Helena, MT today to schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience.
