Signs Your Car Needs an Oil Change
In order to hear what your car is saying, you need to speak its language. Here’s the language your engine is speaking when it’s telling you it’s ready for an oil change!
• Oil Light – When the oil light comes on in your car, there’s a good chance that it’s either low or it’s getting to the point that the sensor isn’t recognizing it. Either way, it’s time to replace the oil.
• Low Oil – When you pull the dipstick, wipe it down, slide it back in, and pull it out again, you may notice that it’s running a bit low. If you know it has been awhile since your last oil change, then adding a quart isn’t always your best bet. Schedule an oil change appointment.
• Dark Oil – Look at the towel you wiped the dipstick on. Does the color of the oil look clear or is it more opaque? If it’s still clear, you still have some time, but if it looks super dark, it’s time to get your car some new oil.
