Show Your Engine Some Love with Routine Oil Changes from our Belleville Service Crew

Let's face it: for most St. Clair County area drivers, having an oil change performed is about as thrilling as watching paint dry, but at least it's over quickly. And while hardly the most exciting afternoon activity on your to-do list, there's no denying that this relatively simple step is arguably the easiest and most inexpensive thing you can do to ensure your car's engine lasts for thousands of miles to come; when you look at it from that viewpoint, suddenly bringing your automobile into our Belleville, IL service center for an oil change is a task you can really sink your teeth into.

You see, your car's oil is used to lubricate its instruments; this lubrication is of incredible importance to the vehicle's inner workings, as it helps to prevent friction that can easily occur, what with so many elements rubbing up against one another for extended periods of time. Needless to say, the engine demands a lot of its oil, so naturally over time, the oil will break down and no longer be able to provide proper lubrication. At this point, it's time for that less effective oil to be drained, and for fresh new oil to be added to the system so as to guarantee proper lubrication and optimal mechanical performance: that's the gist of your typical oil change.

Generally, the recommended interval between oil changes is approximately 3 months, or 3,000-5,000 miles. That being said, there's no one-size-fits-all answer to how often your car will require this routine maintenance, as it largely depends on your personal driving habits and tendencies.
