Oil Change Maintenance for Cars
At Al Nahdha Auto, Ras-Al-Khor we have tailored our Oil Change Maintenance package to not only change the vehicle oil and oil filter, but to also conduct a multi-point check up to ensure the vehicle maintenance and safety. These measures that our experienced team perform can potentially avoid costly vehicle repairs in future.
Our trained technicians will replace the oil and filter with superior quality engine oil and branded oil filter.
How often you need to change your engine oil?
Cars in the olden years need to be changed every 3000 miles because the oil used during that period tended to wear out within 3000 miles.
Unless you’re driving a car that’s more than ten years old, or under super extreme conditions, there’s really no reason to change your oil at 3000 miles anymore.
Also with the introduction of high quality lubricants and tighter tolerances in the assembly of automotive engines many auto makers recommend oil change at 5000 , 7500,10000 or 15000 miles for newer models under ideal driving conditions.
You need to change your oil frequently if you are driving in a severe condition:
A severe condition is identified from the below:
- Extensive Idling
- Frequent stop and go driving in the traffic
- Driving in extreme temperatures (below than 10 degrees or above 90 degrees)
- Extreme humidity
- Frequent short distance trips less than 5 miles
- Towing a trailer or hauling heavy materials.
If your vehicle is driving in any of the above in a typical week, then you should change oil more often.
Always refer the car’s owners manual to see when is the period recommended for doing oil change for your vehicle.
However it is advised if you are an extremely low mileage driver you should change oil at least once a year.
Some newer vehicles are equipped with an oil life monitoring system, then you should watch for the info/warning displayed in your dashboard to tell you more accurately when you need a change.
At Al Nahdha Auto, our experienced team will give you the necessary advice for the next oil change based on the driving condition of your vehicle.
