Conventional Oil & Filter Change

Mopar Conventional Oil & Filter Change Service

Having clean oil in your car is one of those small, important things that help every car ride go just as it should. Understanding which oil should be used, the frequency for it to be changed as well as it’s importance in conjunction with the oil filter are great ways to emphasize getting them taken care of regularly and off the “to do for later” list that it so often falls on.

What is Conventional Oil?

Conventional oil is the classic oil most people are familiar with. Conventional oil is the most affordable option for cars and for that reason, is the one most preferred. Each car needs a certain oil, so it’s worth looking at your owners manual or coming into the team at Elder Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Cedar Creek service center so we can look up if conventional oil is right for you.

How Often Should You Schedule Oil Changes

Newer cars typically provide a real-time read of the life of your oil. Typically, conventional oil can provide your car with optimal performance anywhere from 3,000 to 5,000 miles without needing attention.

Signs you need your oil changed:

  • When you check the dipstick, it comes out murky and dark. Clean oil is good oil, always
  • Dashboard oil light comes on
  • You start to hear strange noises coming from your engine – without the right amount of lubrication, parts rub together and eventually cause severe damage to your car

What about the oil filter?

Your filter works for your oil and engine. The oil filter is what helps keep the oil clean longer and working better for your car to perform as it should. A dirty and overused filter can lead to your oil becoming contaminated with debris.

How Often to Change Your Fuel Filter

Whenever our team of professionals takes a look at your oil, we also take a look at your filter. When we show it to you, we make recommendations based on how it’s looking. If there is visible debris lined along with the filter and it is no longer it’s clean color, it’s likely time to get a new filter.
