You can find an oil change at your nearby dealership — and if you’re near Shiloh, that’s Auffenberg Dealer Group.

Changing your vehicle’s oil is one of the most important maintenance tasks you can perform, but there is some confusion about what to do and when. We’ll answer a few of your basic questions here and, when you’re ready to take care of your vehicle the right way, make an appointment with one of our skilled service techs.

How Often Should I Change My Oil?

While it’s generally accepted that oil should be changed every 3-5,000 miles, the actual schedule depends on the make, model, and age of your vehicle. Check with our handy service schedule or your owner’s manual to be sure. No matter what kind of vehicle you drive, you should get under the hood and check your oil levels regularly, roughly once a month.

How Long Should an Oil Change Take?

If you’re doing the job yourself, an oil change shouldn’t take more than an hour. If you bring your vehicle to a service center, it can take about half that time.

What’s the Difference Between Conventional and Synthetic Oil Changes?

  • Conventional oil works well in most engines, so long as the correct viscosity is used and the oil is changed on time.
  • Synthetic oil is a man-made replacement for conventional oil and generally lasts longer, providing better protection and longer oil change intervals. Synthetic oil is a good option for high-mileage and performance vehicles.

Can I Save with Oil Change Coupons?

To help save our clients more on the services they need, we offer frequent service discounts and coupons – including money-saving offers on oil changes.
