If you own or operate a fleet or commercial truck, you know how quickly miles rack up and oil changes are needed. At Autoworks in Ithaca, NY, our main goal is to keep your trucks on the road - a huge part of that is changing your oil on time.
With modern engines, oil changes are extremely important. Tiny passageways that feed and regulate your VVT, active fuel management systems, and turbos can easily become clogged, rendering an engine useless or causing catastrophic failure. Furthermore, manufacturers are constantly trying to battle each other with their guarantee for increasing distances between oil changes...some boast only needing an oil change once a year, or every 15k miles.
While oil and engine efficiency has improved, and the 3,000-mile oil change may be obsolete in many applications, be weary of waiting so long between an oil change. Your engine relies heavily on clean oil to lubricate, prevent damage, and operate correctly. Furthermore, your vehicles are subjected to a lot more useful than an everyday passenger car; care for it accordingly.
We recommend changing your oil at around 5,000 miles. Get it done every time, and you’ll reap the benefits in short order. Your engine will last much, much longer, saving you and your business a lot of time and money in the long run. No matter your repair or maintenance needs, we’ve got you covered. For the best fleet and commercial service shop in Ithaca, NY, call or stop by Autoworks today.
