Oil Change Service at Healey Chevrolet Buick in New Hampton, NY


Oil and filter changes are an essential part of your car's maintenance. They are also one of the most forgotten about or put-off services. If you see the change oil light appear on your Chevrolet or Buick vehicle, don't ignore it: schedule your next oil change appointment with our service center.


Why is an Oil Change So Important?

Your engine's oil is like the lifeblood of your vehicle. Not only does it lubricate the interior parts of your engine, but it also cools and cleans along the way. Any debris that may find its way into the engine gets trapped in the oil and caught by the filter as it passes through. Over time, the oil will start to degrade, causing it to become too thin or sludgy. Once this happens, the oil will need to be changed. If left unchanged, more damage to your engine will occur, leaving you with a larger and more expensive repair bill.

When Should I Get the Oil Changed in My Car?

While every vehicle is different, most models recommend having the oil changed every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. If your change oil light comes on before this time, make sure to check the oil to see if it needs to be changed sooner.

What Type of Oil Does My Vehicle Need?

The best way to determine what type of oil your car requires is to check the owner's manual. You'll want to make sure that you have the right viscosity of oil for your car's engine as well as the correct oil standards.

What's the Difference Between Conventional Oil and Synthetic Oil?

There are typically two types of oil, conventional motor oil and synthetic oil. Conventional motor oil is considered crude oil that's been refined from the ground. Synthetic oil is manufactured from petroleum components and other materials. Most modern vehicles recommend using a synthetic oil that will help decrease the amount of friction in the engine.

How is an Oil Changed Done?

When a technician changes your vehicle's oil, they will first unplug and drain the old oil and remove the dirty filter. Once drained, they'll inspect each part and then replace the oil and filter with the appropriate blend. This process is typically quick and is normally combined with other routine maintenance items, such as tire rotations, brake inspections, and more.
