Oil Changes and Engine Oil Life

Posted at Tue, Nov 8, 2016 2:15 PM

Your car’s engine is the heart of your vehicle and the oil is its bloodstream. You can shorten the lifespan of your engine if you’re driving around with dirty oil or not enough oil. Oil does eventually wear out. Repeated heating and cooling plus the accumulation of particles makes oil thicker. This not only decreases its ability to flow, it can leave harmful deposits in your engine and cause considerable damage. At Tim’s Truck Capital our technicians are specially trained to know how to monitor oil life and how your vehicle uses oil. An oil change from one of our service experts provides great service, convenience, and a great price. Come to #TimsTruckCapital when it’s time for your vehicle’s next oil change.

In the meantime, it’s a good idea to check your oil level on a regular basis. An accurate reading is best obtained when the oil is warm or at normal operating temperature. The vehicle must also be on level ground.

Choosing the proper grade of oil is important in engine maintenance. A range of oil types is available, including ACDelco Conventional Oil, ACDelco dexos1® Synthetic Blend, Mobil1™ Full Synthetic. Tim’s Truck Capital experts will know the right grade of oil to use for your specific vehicle.

Most vehicles have an engine Oil Life System (OLS). This system helps determine when it’s time for an oil change. It does this by interpreting your vehicle’s speed and engine temperature and continuously monitoring operating conditions.

The OLS also monitors your personal driving habits as well as the area’s climate conditions. This helps to precisely determine when its time for an oil change. When the OLS light comes on, you know it’s time for service. It’s an accurate, effective way to save money and help reduce oil waste.

Your Certified Service technician at #Tim’sTruckCapital and Auto Sales will reset your Oil Life System after an oil change. We at Tim’s Truck Capital and Auto Sales want to help you keep your vehicle running for as long as possible. We also have a large inventory of used trucks, SUVs and cars. Find out more at
