When Should I Get My Oil Changed?

Fort Myers drivers can find out how often a car's oil should be changed so their Mitsubishi continues to run for as long as possible. Whether you're the owner of a new Mitsubishi or a used vehicle of some other make and model, getting your oil changed should always be high on your list of priorities. You generally want to get an oil change around every 5,000 miles. These intervals can vary slightly depending on the vehicle, though, so it's important to check your owner's manual or get in touch with your FORT MYERS MITSUBISHI service center to make sure you know the particulars for your make and model.

Why Are Oil Changes So Important?

Oil is the lubricant that prevents excessive friction between the pistons and the inner walls. If you wait too long to get your oil changed, the oil can run low or fill with debris. When that happens, excessive engine heating can occur, decreasing the performance and efficiency of your vehicle.

How Do I Change My Oil?

If you would like to change your own oil, there are a number of steps you will need to take, including:

  1. Choosing the right kind of oil
  2. Preparing supplies and vehicle
  3. Draining oil from the drain plug
  4. Tightening the drain plug
  5. Changing the oil filter
  6. Adding new oil
  7. Making sure the oil level is right
