Oil changes are essential in keeping your car running and healthy. They are a simple appointment, one of the more frequent ones and help extend the life of your vehicle. Each make and model is different, which is why coming to a certified dealer, like Nissan of Tustin, is important to make sure you’re having professionals take a look at your car.
When it comes to oil, there is an option of synthetic and conventional oil. Which is right for you car depends on the manufacturer, and typically newer cars take synthetic. We use the factory-recommended synthetic oil that is best suited for your vehicle to help it run optimally.
Why Use Synthetic Oil?
Typical conventional oil is recommended to be changed once every 3,000 miles, but, with synthetic, you can often go at minimum twice as far. Though it is a little more expensive than conventional at first, you are coming in less often which means you’re saving money by the second change. More and more manufacturers are designing their vehicles to require synthetic oil for a reason.
Can’t remember when the last time it was you had your oil changed? When checking it, if after cleaning off the dipstick it comes out dark and murky, it’s time to come get some clean oil. Other signs include hearing a rattling or knocking sound while driving, the “check engine” light on your dashboard is on, or you can smell oil in the cabin. When that happens, come see us immediately because there is likely a leak.
