When You Need an Oil Change

Don’t Miss This Essential Service!

How long has it been since your last oil change? Wondering if it’s time for the next one? Whitlock Automotive in Dripping Springs, Texas can help. Here are a few reasons why it might be a good idea to stop by our facility for an oil change at your next convenience.

It’s Been More than 6 Months

Motor oil doesn’t last forever. Even if you rarely drive your car for a few months, you’ll still need to change the oil to ensure it’s performing properly in the engine. If you do drive regularly, frequent oil changes are important to remove harmful contaminants that find their way into the engine and get collected by the motor oil.

Your Reminder Sticker Says So

If you visit Whitlock Automotive regularly for maintenance, our technicians make it easy to tell when it’s time to come back to our shop for your next oil change. Just check the date on the reminder sticker placed in the corner of your windshield. It should have an estimated time for your next service and a listing for the mileage at which the oil change is needed.

Your Owner’s Manual Says So

If you want to take proper care of your car, the owner’s manual is a great place to start. The manufacturer’s recommended service schedule will outline how frequently your car needs oil changes to protect its health and performance based on its design.

Your Engine is Sluggish

If you notice drops in your car’s performance, it’s a good idea to visit professional auto technicians for service. An oil change, perhaps part of a full tune-up service, will benefit your car’s engine. It can remove built-up grime and contaminants and clean off components to help them run better.

The Oil Level Is Low

Monitoring the quality and level of your motor oil can help you determine how your individual vehicle’s engine runs. Use a dipstick to measure the oil level and inspect the quality. If you notice any problems, it might be a good idea to opt for a full oil change to replace the oil filter too.
