Changing your engine's oil is one of the most important maintenance tasks you should do. To learn how to tell if your vehicle needs new oil, read this post by Fantastic Synthetics in Helenville, WI.

How to Tell if Your Vehicle Requires a Synthetic Oil Change

  1. For starters, you need to pay attention to how many miles you've driven with the same oil. Be advised, however, that the number of miles will depend on the vehicle you have, its age, its usage, as well as other factors.
  2. Another thing to consider is time. How long ago was it that you last replaced your engine's oil? If it's been over a year, your engine is due some new oil so it can stay properly protected and lubricated.
  3. The color and texture of the oil can also be indicators of the condition it is in. If it's darker and coarser, it may be filled with dirt, which can actually accelerate your engine's wear and tear process. This is why it needs to be changed.
  4. For the oil to protect and lubricate your engine, it needs to have the right amount. To ensure yours is, do a dipstick test every so often. If it's lower than it should be, refill your oil and check for leaks.
  5. One of the most obvious signs you'll get that your engine needs new oil is that your dashboard will tell you it does. If the 'Check Engine' or 'Oil' signs are on, then you most definitely should go on with a replacement.
  6. Finally, you should be aware of your engine's behavior: if it's making weird noises or is jumpy, it may need a change of oil. Still, it's recommended that you take it to a mechanic to rule out any other malfunction.
