We have talked about the importance of oil changes and answered some frequently asked questions about the service, now our Gandrud Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM service experts are going to make sure you know when it’s time to bring your vehicle in for an efficient, fast oil change at our service center.
How Do You Know It’s Time for an Oil Change?
These are the best ways to know when it’s time to bring in your Chrysler minivan or Jeep SUV for an oil change.
- Check your maintenance schedule. This may seem obvious, but it’s also the best way to make sure you’re getting oil changes when you need them. Your owner’s manual will tell you how frequently you should be getting your oil changed, and if you’ve visited us before, you can always call to find out when your last oil change was.
- Increased engine noise or knocking sounds. As we talked about before, motor oil keeps your engine parts lubricated — which means if it’s not doing its job, your engine will start getting noisier with increased metal-to-metal contact. If you hear a knocking sound, it’s escalated, so it’s time to tow your vehicle to our service center!
- Odd or burning smells. If you start smelling oil inside your car, it could mean a leak in the system — so not only do you need an oil change, but you might also need a repair. And if your vehicle starts to smell like something is burning in the cabin, that could mean your engine is heating up due to a lack of oil.
