We can’t stress enough how important it is to regularly change your vehicle’s oil in order to keep the engine running smoothly. The latest generations of engines are extremely complex and require lubricants of a particular viscosity that contain specific additives. However, these lubricants have a limited life span, and if they are not changed regularly, a gelatinous sludge will build up in the lubrication system and slowly damage the engine.
Your certified NAPA AUTOPRO technician knows the right type of lubricant for every engine, as well as the recommended oil change schedule. Generally, engine oil should be changed every 5,000 km or so. However, some manufacturers suggest longer intervals between maintenance and specify the viscosity and type of product to use, such as synthetic oil.
Usually, your certified NAPA AUTOPRO technician will inspect a variety of other vehicle components during an oil change and provide a summary report.
