How often should I change my vehicle’s oil?

This depends on the age of your vehicle and whether your vehicle uses synthetic or regular oil. Regular oil should be changes roughly every 5,000 km, but synthetic oil only needs to be changed roughly every 10,000 – 11,000 km. If you’re not sure, check your owner’s manual for recommendations from the manufacturer of your vehicle.


What is synthetic oil?

Synthetic motor oil consists of chemical compounds that are artificially made from compounds other than crude oil. It generally provides better mechanical function than traditional oils.


What should I do if my check engine light comes on?

Your check engine light can mean a number of different things, from a loose gas cap to serious engine problems. You should bring your vehicle in for service as soon as possible to have it examined by a professional who can let you know what the problem is.
