Oil Change near Sylvania, GA

Oil Change

Oil changes are a standard part of regular vehicle maintenance. However, it’s not always clear why your vehicle needs certain maintenance services. To help drivers near Sylvania, Georgia, learn more about oil changes, Franklin Toyota has put together this oil change guide. Then schedule an appointment to get your oil changed!


How Oil Changes Work

Pouring Engine Oil

Oil changes help your engine run smoothly. The oil your technician puts in when you get an oil change circulates through your engine while driving. As it does this, it cools and lubricates various parts to keep your engine from overheating.

When you get an oil change, the old dirty oil is drained out, and new oil is put in to replace it. The type of oil will depend on your vehicle’s age, mileage, and sometimes its model.

Oil changes are an important part of your vehicle maintenance and don’t take very long. Most oil changes take about 45 minutes or less, and should be done roughly every 5,000 to 7,000 miles.


Signs You Need an Oil Change

Service Center

There are a few signs to keep an eye out for, to let you know that your vehicle needs an oil change. The first one is the sticker from your last oil change. Technicians will give you a date or mileage number to look for on your odometer. When you hit that number, it’s time for an oil change.

Some other signs include:

  • New knocking or grinding noises from your engine—If there’s not enough oil in your engine, it might not be lubricated properly. This can cause engine parts to knock or grind together.
  • A burning smell inside your cabin—If your oil is dirty or too low, it can’t cool down your engine. If your engine gets too hot, it starts to smell. This can also be caused by an oil leak—either way, head to a technician.
  • Your oil consistency is different—If your oil is grimy or has particles in it, that means it’s time to change your oil. Oil picks up these particles when cycling through your engine. These particles can make it difficult for the oil to do its job.
  • Your dashboard light comes on—Your vehicle has a warning light to let you know if your oil is too low. It will come on if you need more oil or an oil change.
