Everyone remembers the old adage “change your oil every 3 months or 3,000 miles.” You might be surprised to learn that most modern vehicles today can now go much longer between service intervals such as oil changes. Be sure to check your owner’s manual for your factory suggested maintenance schedule.
It is important to remember that your manufacturer’s maintenance suggestions are based on ideal driving conditions. Extreme weather, excessive towing or long stop and go commutes can significantly shorten time between service intervals. Severe driving conditions such as these can cause the vulnerable components in your engine compartment to dry out or become contaminated.
Regular maintenance services such as oil changes will allow our technicians to inspect the belts and hoses under the hood of your car, which are most susceptible to leaks and cracks.
If you’ve gone a little longer than you should when it comes to changing your oil come on into Victory Lane Automotive. We can quickly asses your vehicle and its current condition and give you an idea of how often you should change your oil or suggest when you should have various maintenance services performed on your vehicle.
While the term Tune Up may be a bit outdated it is still used to reference maintenance services that should be performed at various mileage markers. The older your car, truck or SUV becomes the more maintenance it will require.
