One important responsibility when owning a car is taking care of the maintenance. For instance, getting your oil changed is necessary if you want to keep your engine running smoothly. If you don’t change your oil regularly, there is no way your engine can perform at it’s best. It can cause costly repairs to your engine down the road, so making sure you change your oil on time is vital. Fresh oil lubricates many parts of the engine and when you have dirty oil it, can’t do its job properly. You can tell when your oil is dirty because it becomes an extremely thick, sludge-like substance, which is very corrosive to the engine. There are many different types of oils but at Kearny Mesa INFINITI, we use a premium selection and INFINITI-trained technicians who are always up-to-date on the latest new INFINITI cars.

It’s hard to know exactly when to change your oil because it often depends on factors like what type of driver you are and what type of vehicle you have. On average, your INFINITI car should have its oil changed every 5,000 miles or so. However, since every model is different, it’s always good to check with your INFINITI trained technician to know for sure. It’s also good to know that extremely hot weather or frequently taking short trips can shorten the life of your oil. Just to be safe, it’s a good idea to check you’re oil every few hundred miles. It should be at the full mark and if it’s not, you’ll know you need to fill up.
