How Often Should I Get an Oil Change?

How Often Should I Get an Oil Change?

If you want to ensure that your ride is active and healthy for many years to come, you’ll want to keep up with regular vehicle maintenance. Perhaps, most important of all is getting consistent oil changes. Unfortunately, not everyone knows how often this service should be performed, so read on below to find out and then schedule a service with us here at Molle Toyota!

Importance of Oil Changes

There are plenty of reasons why oil changes are crucial, but the most vital part it plays is maintaining the performance of your engine. Without this slick fluid, your powertrain would quickly overheat and leave you with a big bill on your hands. On top of that, oil diverts dirt and debris away so that it doesn’t accumulate and gunk up all the moving parts inside. Last but not least, your ride sustains much less wear and tear when it has adequate amounts of oil, which means your vehicle’s lifespan can dramatically improve if you swap old batches for new ones regularly.

How to Check Your Oil

These days, oil lasts much longer than it ever did before, so the usual recommendation of 3,000 to 5,000 miles per batch isn’t as accurate as it used to be. One of the best ways to determine whether it’s time to make an appointment at our Service Bay is by checking the condition of your ride’s fluid at home. This is actually relatively easy to do and shouldn’t take longer than five minutes. To start, open the hood and find the dipstick, which is typically adorned with a bright yellow top. Remove it, wipe the residual liquid from the bottom, then insert it into the engine again before pulling it out once more. Now, check the bottom. If your oil isn’t within the indicated range or its dark and less viscous that it should be, now is the time to stop in.

Our Service Department

Make your way to our service department as soon as you need an oil change. Our technicians are experts in the field and perform this maintenance on a daily basis, so you’ll be in and out in no time at all. While you wait, take a seat in our comfortable lounge and have a cup of coffee on us. Fortunately, you won’t have to put off your weekend plans for too long since we’ll be handing you back your keys sooner than expected.

If you ever wondered, “How often should I get an oil change?” now you have a better idea. We at Molle Toyota can’t wait to get your ride back into tip-top shape. Stop by soon!

The staff at Molle Toyota have taken care of me for over 11 years. No b.s. in the service side, they listen to what the problem is from my perspective, diagnose then advise on proper action. I fortunately am mechanically inclined and fully able to do my own work on my vehicles but there are times I just don't feel like messing with it. All the work performed here is done right the first time and I am satisfied with their work and customer service.

My Tacoma was due for its 6 month maintenance but I was reluctant to take it to the dealership due to the Coronavirus. Without hesitation, Molle Toyota sent a service person to pick up my truck at my home, get it serviced at the dealership, and return it to me -- all in less than 45 minutes.

ECU recall repair took 2 1/2 times longer than I was originally advised by person who made my appointment and also what the recall notice predicted. Also was told by Service Advisor that I would receive a record of my visit by email. It is now 2 days later and I still have no written record of the work that was done. I have always had excellent service on my vehicles at Molle but this time is an exception.

My 80 year old mother has been a customer of Molle for decades. Last week she totaled her Matrix (bought from Molle). I brought in an old clunker Sienna van the family uses as a backup emergency vehicle. Jason was genuinely concerned for my mother's condition and understood we were looking to do the minimum possible to get the van into a state that could be used for a short term vehicle. He could have easily hyped up the need to replace the exhaust system or any number of other things. He did not do that - he recommended doing only what was absolutely necessary. He was compassionate, honest and helped ease a stressful situation. We will be back in a few months to start looking for a replacement for the Matrix.

I really appreciate the service at Molle. Recently I had to have some transmission repair that was going to take longer than expected. A friendly speedy ride to and from the dealership was provided, and then finally a "borrowed car." If you have to have alot of work done, they will take good care of you.
