What Happens During a Lexus Oil Change?

During an oil change at our Lexus service center near Carlsbad, our technicians will begin by putting your vehicle on a lift and inspecting the area where they plan to perform service. Then, they'll take the time to drain the old oil and replace the filter with a Genuine Lexus Oil Filter. Next, our technicians will safely bring your vehicle off the lift and replace the oil, utilizing the correct viscosity oil for your specific engine.

Signs Your Oil Needs Changing

Not having enough oil or running beyond service intervals with dirty oil can cause extreme damage to your vehicle. Thankfully, there are several ways for drivers to avoid costly engine repairs and ensure their vehicle is running smoothly around San Marcos, CA. If you know how to check the dipstick of your vehicle's engine, you should ensure that the engine has an adequate amount of oil and that there are no metallic particles in the oil. In addition, drivers should take note of odd engine noises, such as loud ticking or knocking, as these can be indicators of poor oil condition.

Benefits of Regular Oil Changes

Regular oil changes have plenty of benefits, including maintaining the performance and reliability of your luxury car or SUV. When you change the oil frequently, you'll be able to ensure that your engine can cool and lubricate the valuable internal components properly during spirited drives around Vista, CA.

Also, clean engine oil traps harmful sediments while circulating through the engine before passing through the oil filter, where containments stay until the following oil change. Frequent oil changes mean your vehicle can easily protect itself in all conditions, from scorching summers to frigid winters.
