Regular oil changes every 3,000 miles save your vehicle’s engine
Industry experts advise an oil change for most cars every 3,000 miles or every three months. There are other factors that affect this, such as your driving habits, the mileage on your car, and the area you live in.
Our ASE-certified oil change specialists will help you set up a schedule for regular oil changes that meet your needs. That service can be combined with your other maintenance appointments to save you time.
Oil changes protect your engine by:
- Clearing out dirt and debris
- Redistributing and absorbing excess heat buildup
- Protecting the engine from rust and corrosion
- Providing a layer of oil over all parts of the engine
Most cars and trucks today are being driven longer than those in the past. This affects the type of oil that is used in your vehicle. Vehicles with more than 75,000 miles can last when a high-mileage blend of oil is used.
You can be sure that your engine is being given the best protection possible with a Valvoline oil change at Ramona Tire & Service Centers in Ontario.

Why is regular oil change service so important for any vehicle?
Most car owners are aware of the importance of regular oil changes and oil filter changes. Some experts go so far as to say that this one action is more important than any other. The question is why?
A car engine is an intricate system of metal components working together. The oil and its filter keep dirt and debris from reaching the working parts of the engine. Clean oil lubricates the system and all its parts and prevents metal-against-metal grinding. There is also a normal amount of heat that builds up in the engine and clean oil absorbs and redirects the excess heat. Dirty oil no longer has that ability, so the heat simply builds up in the engine. Overheating is the result.

Conventional oil or synthetic oil? Which is best?
Conventional oil is derived from refined crude oil. It’s greatest advantage for car owners is the lower cost. It is also available in a wide range of viscosity grades and quality levels.
Conventional oil flows more slowly than synthetic oils so it offers more protection to engines with 75,000 miles or more. But conventional oils wear and experience chemical degradation in harsh conditions like lower temperatures.
Synthetic oil is chemically engineered, using synthetic oil as a base and then adding chemicals like polyalphaolefin, castor waxes, and paraffinic oils. One result of this process is an oil with few impurities that also performs better in extreme weather.
Synthetic motor oil, through its additives, provides better engine protection against corrosion and rusting. This makes it ideal for high-performance engines as well as cars that are used primarily for short trips. Finally, synthetics also offer longer intervals between oil changes than conventional oils, often up to 15,000 miles.
Can I change the oil myself?
The easy answer is yes, you can. In reality, though, it may turn out to be more than you bargained for. It tends to be a messy, risky, and inconvenient job to do at home. Having the right tools at home is sometimes an issue. Access to the pan bolt and oil filter alone can prove to be more difficult than anticipated. Plus, a DIY mechanic may cross-thread the filter, use the wrong oil, or overlook a leak.Getting under the vehicle without the equipment used at your local auto shop is not only uncomfortable, it is also dangerous. Properly disposing of the old oil must be considered, too.

Does the oil filter need to be changed every time the oil is changed?
It is good practice to change the oil filter every time the oil is changed. This allows the “team” of the oil and its filter to perform its best at all times.
