Find out why the oil change is an important part of car ownership

Every model of car has its own oil and filter change interval, some are every 3 months or 3,000 miles, while others go as long as 12,000 miles. But while we accept changing the oil and filter as a necessity, do we really know why this is?

The oil provides lubrication for the engine, it reduces wear and tear, and it cleans certain internal components. The oil also acts as a seal to the pistons, rings, and cylinder walls, and it helps keep certain engine parts cool. If the engine oil isn't properly drained and refilled with clean oil, carbon and varnish can buildup and prove toxic to your engine. If a car is allowed to run out of oil, that alone has its own set of problems, beginning with the engine seizing and potentially rendering your vehicle useless. Here at Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Roseburg we have the best staff to take care of all your vehicle's needs, and the parts in stock to complete the service.

In addition to changing your oil, we will also change your oil filter. Doing this assures that your new oil remains clean and flows freely to all of the components that require oil. Failure to install a new filter can reintroduce contaminants into the oil system and impede the flow of oil.
