Here Are 3 Things to Know About Oil Changes for Your Vehicle from Jefferson Auto Repair

oil changeHere are good questions to ask if you are confused about motor oil, the right time to have it changed and how often to change it. Whatever the best oil is for your car, Juan and his auto repair mechanics at Jefferson Auto Repair in West Orange, NJ are the best to help you in that department.

Here are 3 things about the oil change for your vehicle that you should know:

1. When you should change your motor oil: Many cars, pickup, and even SUVs have service reminder monitors that will alert drivers to when it’s time to change the motor oil. So, please make sure you get your oil changed after you have received this alert.

2. How often you should check your vehicle's oil level: You should always keep an eye on your motor oil level, checking it at least once a month. Juan and his mechanics can assist you with this. 

3. How often you should change the motor oil: Depending upon the make and model of the vehicle, an oil change could be recommended every 3,000 miles to 5,000 miles. For some drivers, that might mean every three to six months. And Jefferson Auto Repair mechanics know the correct oil to use for each vehicle.

1. Vibration – The tread on your vehicle's tires is said to develop a defect that cannot be balanced out. And this is because of the minor separation on the steel and polyester bands that are inside your vehicle’s tires.

2. Noise – Your tires on your vehicle can make all kinds of noises, for example, some are normal wear and tear while others are a sign of a bad tire. The so-called chopped tread is a sign of a flat spot in your vehicle’s tire. This is typically caused by a defect in the tire or the locking up of the brakes.

3. Wobbling – The word "wobbling" is said to be the most obvious  sign of a bad tire. This will only happen at very low speeds and then you will be able to feel the car bounce up and down and you may even see the steering wheel start to move.
