Dow Auto Care recommends checking your oil level at least once a month. Be sure to get repairs done at the first sign of a leak. If you do have a dipstick, and you’re checking it yourself, make sure the car is parked on the leveled ground.
Depending on the vehicles age, engine, and type of oil used. General rule of thumb is, if you are using regular, non-speciality oil, and your car is of an older model, you should change your oil between every 3000 miles and 3500 miles. However, if yuo are a hard driver, we recommend changing the oil every 3000 Miles regularly.
Different cars use different weights of oil. Some use 5W-0, some use 5W-20, and some use 10W-20, etc. Usually the cars manual (Your Vehicle Bible) will tell you what kind of oil your car uses. Most vehicle's oil cap will also list the type of oil to use. However, if you are not sure and can't find that information anywhere, Please bring your car in to Dow Auto Care, or call us at (386) 947-7686 and we will be glad to help you.
You can take your car to any auto mechanic for a regular oil change. You can even do it yourself on a sunday afternoon. However, we do not guarantee all results to be the same.
