Katy Oil & Filter Change Services
The intricate gears, bearings, and tight tolerances of your car’s engine need oil to help reduce friction and run smoothly. Oil changes not only improve the lifespan of your vehicle, they reduce the chances of your car overheating or sludge forming that could otherwise cause irreparable damage.
Low oil levels and old oil are major factors that can seriously impact your car’s overall lifespan and performance. Dillon’s Automotive provides a higher level of service when it comes to your oil changes by also inspecting, checking, and servicing the essential components of your vehicle to make sure it continues to run smoothly. One of our ASE certified technicians will evaluate your car or truck and provide you with the best options for your filter and oil change.
The frequency of getting your oil change depends on the type of car you have, where and how you drive, the type of oil you use, road conditions, and weather extremities. While every vehicle is different and every individual’s situation is unique, Dillon’s Automotive recommends, on average, to get your oil changed every 3,000 – 5,000 miles if using conventional oils or 5,000 – 7,500 with synthetics.
Dillon’s Automotive stocks many brands and weights of oils including Castrol, Mobil 1, Rotella, Royal Purple, and Valvoline and you can choose between synthetic and conventional oil. Typically, conventional oils have additives that improve flow and lubrication while synthetic oils offer enhanced performance and protection. Either type of oil does not eliminate the need for regular oil changes. Regardless of the type of oil your car requires, our technicians will inspect and provide you the best oil options that fit your engine needs.
In addition to oil changes, the car’s oil filter is a key component that should be regularly checked and changed in order to reduce operating risks of a vehicle. The oil filter is the engine’s main line of defense against premature wear and abrasion and is designed to remove solid contaminants like dirt, carbon, and metal particles from the oil before it gets disseminated throughout the vehicle. A good rule of thumb is to replace the oil filter on every oil change.
