Everything You Need to Know About Motor Oil Changes



At Keyes Toyota, we are proud to be one of the leading Los Angeles Toyota dealerships, however, earning that title means more than just providing our customers with great new and pre-owned vehicles. We also offer our customers in-depth automotive knowledge and advice all in the goal of bettering their driving experience.

Of all the regular servicing and maintenance you should get for your car, oil changes are possibly the most important and can mean all the difference in your driving experience. Motor oil is a motor fluid essential for the day-to-day function of your engine. Your car’s engine is made up of intricate moving components that cause friction. When your car’s motor oil levels are low, or when your motor oil is clogged with grime, this degree of friction is increased. As a result, excess heat is created, putting wear on these important components, and potentially leading to some pretty costly repairs. In the short term, a lack of proper motor oil can cause your engine to work harder, in the long-term it can cause your engine to shut down, which can only be remedied by a replacement.

So, how do you avoid the long-term consequences of replacing your engine? Well, our car care experts at Keyes Toyota recommend that drivers follow the direction of their owners manual, and receive an oil change on a regular basis. On average, a car should have its oil changed once every 5,000 miles or six months. We also recommend having a maintenance expert who can help you keep up with your motor oil servicing and ensure the long-term well-being of your vehicle.

When you visit Keyes Toyota, you’ll find a Toyota service team that is committed to the effort of keeping your vehicle running smoothly. No matter what kind of maintenance you require, our team have got all of your automotive bases covered.
