Like many Chicago locals, you’re most likely packing a bag as we speak and getting ready for summer fun on the open road.
But before you rev up the engine, pump your brakes and ask yourself, “When’s the last time I got my oil changed?” If an answer comes in the form of a shoulder shrug, it’s probably time to head into Milito’s Auto Repair. Oil changes are a must-do, especially during the Midwest summer months – here’s why.
Clean Oil Helps Give Your Car a Clean Bill of Health
Motor oil lubricates the moving parts in your engine, preventing wear and tear by keeping the engine clean, removing contaminants, and reducing hot spots. Neglecting to get your oil changed based on your manufacturer’s recommended guidelines can lead to costly repairs down the road and shorten the life expectancy of your engine.
Determine Frequency and Stick to a Schedule
Depending on the make and model of your vehicle, the time between recommended oil changes can fluctuate drastically. If you’re unsure of the suggested guidelines, bring your car to Milito’s! We can easily look up your car, truck, or SUVs maintenance schedule, and advise you on when and how your oil should be changed.
Note, harsh weather conditions, driving in stop and go traffic, and driving and dusty or dirty roads, towing a trailer, or driving at high speeds can affect the frequency of oil changes. Our expert technicians take all aspects of your driving routine into account when we make our maintenance recommendations.
Sometimes Simple is the Best Answer for Chicago Car Care and Maintenance
At Milito’s, there’s nothing simpler than getting a high quality oil change. Every standard oil change includes:
