Synthetic Blend Oil Change or Synthetic Oil Change

Upland Oil Change

An oil change at NAPA AutoCare Upland Sounds simple, but there’s some pretty important things to know about preventing oil sludge. Oil eventually starts to turn into jelly. Literally, petroleum jelly. Sludge clogs up oil passages and keeps oil from getting to some areas of the engine, causing parts to wear out prematurely. And that means expensive engine repairs.

That’s why you need to change the oil and oil filter on schedule before it turns to sludge. Ask your manufacturer for recommendations regarding how many miles you can go between oil changes. They will also have a number of months between recommended oil changes because detergents and other additives in the oil will break down over time.

Your owner’s manual will have a recommendation for time and mileage, but you need to remember that it’s based on using the recommended weight of oil. And if your vehicle came from the factory with synthetic oil, the recommended intervals assume you will continue to use synthetic.

Also, depending on your driving habits can have a large effect. Most owner’s manuals will have a list of driving conditions that are harder on your vehicle. Things like stop and go driving, short trips to the the grocery stor, driving in very hot or very cold weather, heavy loads and towing. If some of your driving fits this, you may need to change your oil and do other maintenance on a shorter schedule.

This may sound complicated. Some vehicles in CA have an oil life calculator that takes all of these factors into account and tells you when you should change your oil. Otherwise, talk with your CA service advisor at NAPA AutoCare Upland about how you drive and get their recommendation on your next service.

Finally, if any of the steering or suspension parts can be lubed, the certified technicians at NAPA AutoCare Upland will take care of that with a lube, oil and filter service.
