Great experience purchasing vehicle
We know you’ve heard it a million times before, but it’s always worth it to be reminded to stay consistent with oil changes. At Pohanka Honda, our team of expert mechanics recommends having this procedure performed at regular intervals. Doing so will keep your precious ride in optimal condition for as long as possible.
Oil changes are a crucial part of proper automotive care. Without this slick liquid lubricating your engine, your vehicle will sustain more wear and tear than normal, leading to some serious expenditures in the future if you let things get out of hand. On top of that, oil prevents your powertrain from creating too much friction, which can damage the most sensitive components under the hood due to excess heat. Although most technicians insist that you should have this operation performed every 5,000 miles, check your car’s Owner’s Manual for a better idea of when you should drop by our Service Bay.
If you’re not sure when the last time was that you had an oil change, there are several warning signs that you can look out for. First off, most modern vehicles come with a check engine light or oil change light. If this is currently illuminated in your vehicle, you’ll definitely want our team to get to work as soon as possible. On top of that, the smell of oil inside the cabin can notify you that your ride is suffering from a leak. However, the most obvious way to see whether or not you need to have this routine maintenance performed is if your oil is dark and has particulates in it. To check, open the hood of your vehicle and take a look at the dipstick.
