Conventional Oil Changes for Routine Maintenance
The oil in your vehicle’s engine lubricates the metal parts to keep them from rubbing against each other and to prevent premature wear. The oil also cleans and breaks up particles that naturally collect in the engine. Over time, the oil naturally breaks down and stops working. It can turn into sludge which keeps the engine from operating smoothly. You can end up with an unexpected repair bill or even have to replace the engine.
You can extend the life of your vehicles by having the oil changed regularly. It is one of the most important actions you can take to keep your vehicle running as long as possible.
The oil filter in your car’s engine keeps the oil as clean as possible. Over time the filter can become clogged from normal use. This cuts down the amount of oil actually reaching the engine, which can cause severe damage.

What makes oil change service so important?
Every vehicle’s engine needs lubrication in the form of oil. Oil can lower the risk that your engine will overheat, give you better gas mileage, and even extend the life of your vehicle.
The catch is that oil doesn’t last forever—eventually, dirt and sludge will accumulate. That gets in the way of your oil’s ability to do its job and could have adverse effects on your car’s overall performance if left untreated. Instead of ignoring this issue, drivers should get regular oil changes and have their oil filters replaced to keep their vehicles running as they should.
How can I tell when I need an oil change?
One common rule of thumb encourages motorists to take care of oil changes after driving 3,000 to 6,000 miles. That’s a good baseline, but you’ll also need to make sure you’re getting your oil changed at a rate that meets your unique needs. You should check the user’s manual for your car or truck, or speak with a Ramona Tire technician at our Rancho Cucamonga location to know when you need oil changes.
Perhaps the most critical oil change-related factor to keep in mind is the age of your vehicle. If your car or truck is still new, you shouldn’t need oil changes too often. On the other hand, older vehicles will need extra care, including more frequent oil changes. Other things you should consider when scheduling oil changes include your driving habits and the type of oil that’s best for your needs.
How can I check my oil level?
Is synthetic oil better than conventional oil?
When it’s time to get your vehicle’s oil changed, you’ll need to decide whether you want synthetic or conventional oil. These options both have pros and cons, which means neither one is better than the other in every circumstance.
As its name suggests, synthetic oil is made artificially; however, it still uses crude oil as a base material. It’s more expensive than conventional oil, but you’ll be able to take a longer time between oil changes with this type of oil. On the other hand, conventional oil doesn’t last as long as synthetic oil, but the upfront costs for these oil changes are not as high.
Can I change my own oil?
We’d strongly recommend against trying to do this process yourself. While draining and replacing your vehicle’s oil might sound easy enough, this job is more complicated than you might think—you’ll need to get under your car and use specialized equipment as part of the process. That’s not even mentioning the fact that you’ll need to figure out where to properly dispose of the old oil when everything is said and done.
Because of this, it’s easy to see why most people choose to let the professionals take care of oil changes for them. And when you select Ramona Tire, you’ll get high-quality oil changes while still saving money!
