Hyundai Conventional Oil Change in St. Louis

Conventional oil is a popular type of motor oil derived from crude oil. It is refined to provide lubrication to the moving parts inside of your engine. The biggest advantage of conventional oil is that it is cheaper than other options. However, it is more sensitive to temperature changes.


How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

According to experts, you need to change the oil every 3,000 miles. However, in reality, the schedule depends on many factors, including the age of the car and the type of engine. However, even if you have an older car that uses conventional oil and your driving habits are less typical (driving off-road, frequent towing, or extensive idling), you may not need to change it every 3,000 miles, but is still recommended.

What Can Happen If You Skip Regular Oil Changes?

Due to high temperatures in the car’s engine, motor oil breaks down over time. Because of this, the old oil is not able to provide proper lubrication. As a result, without lubrication, moving metal parts in the engine start rubbing each other by causing premature wear. Moreover, there are particles in the oil that begin to settle after a while and can cause corrosion. In order to prevent it, you need to make sure that the oil is changed on a regular basis.

What Are The Signs That Your Car Needs an Oil Change?

You need to pay attention to the following symptoms indicating that the oil in your car needs to be changed:

  • Increased engine noise. If you keep driving with old oil in your vehicle, the engine may start making a knocking sound.
  • Darker & thicker. Overused motor oil is typically very dark where fresh oil is a light copper color. If you check the dipstick under the hood, and the oil on it is pitch black, schedule an oil change as soon as possible.
  • More miles than usual. If you have just returned from a road trip or long-distance trip, it is recommended to change the oil right away.
  • Flashing “check engine” light. This flashing light can be a sign of different car issues. The most common are problems with the engine or oil. If you keep seeing this light, it is important to take your vehicle to a mechanic.
