The Importance of Oil Changes


One of the best things you can do for your vehicle is to get regular oil changes. We’re ready to help you with all of your oil change needs at Paretti Mazda’s service department. It’s incredibly important to keep up-to-date on changing your oil.

Why is oil important?

Oil keeps your engine working efficiently. It has been called the lifeblood of a vehicle. Quality oil helps reduce the accumulation of dirt and debris is the engine, which can cause your engine to stop working long before it should.  It also keeps your engine from overheating by pulling heat away from the combustion chamber. Of course, filled with debris and heat, oil stops working as efficiently after time, so you’ll need oil changes regularly.

When should I get oil changes?

The old rule of thumb used to be to have your oil changed every 3,000 – 5,000 miles. Now, many vehicles can go much longer without an oil change. You will want to consult your owner’s manual or the experts at Paretti Mazda’s service department to find out how often you should bring your car in for an oil change.

What happens if I don’t change my oil?

If you don’t change your oil when you need to, the oil will become sludge-like and clog your engine. Engines are expensive to clean and even more expensive to repair or replace. The bottom line is simple: Getting regular oil changes will save you time and money in the future.
