Oil Changes

An oil change is a preventative maintenance service that keeps your vehicle running efficiently. You should get an oil change and change your oil filter every five months or 5,000 miles, to keep your engine running smoothly and to help prevent engine damage. Your engine has a lot of moving parts at work to help power your vehicle. These components create heat and friction, which if not contained, can cause serious issues under the hood. Oil lubricates all the parts of your engine, keeps them cool, and eliminates the friction, so that your engine can run smoothly. 

When Should You Get Oil Changes?

Your owner’s manual provides the particular oil change interval you should follow for your specific vehicle. Northside Tire offer quality oil changes and auto repair services in .
