Why are oil changes important?

An oil change is an affordable way to invest in the longevity of your car. It really is one of the most important things you can do for your vehicle. An oil change is a preventative maintenance measure that saves you money at the end of the day. Not only can you extend the life of your vehicle with regular oil changes but you can improve your gas mileage. When oil becomes dirty, it becomes less efficient. Clean oil reduces resistance and provide good lubrication to your engine. Another great benefit of getting your oil changed at Lake Shore Ford is that we can catch minor issues with your vehicle before they turn into something major.

Is synthetic motor oil better for your car?

We recommend looking at your car's manual or talking to one of our service professionals so they can evaluate your needs. They can guide you and help you make the best choice for your car. One of the biggest benefits of using synthetic oil is that is tends to last longer than conventional oil. So if you always stick to your regular oil change appointments and your car doesn't require synthetic oil, you may be okay with conventional oil. If life gets busy and you tend to miss or postpone your oil change appointments, synthetic is a great option.

If it is time for your next oil change, schedule an appointment below at a convenient time that works best for you. Our service professionals are standing by.
