Why You Need a Mobile Oil Change in Washington, DC
Considered the lifeblood of your car, oil is in charge of keeping your engine running smoothly. Its main role is lubricating the engine's moving components to prevent them from grinding against one another and damaging the engine. Oil can also help your engine remain clean and minimize the heat it produces as you cruise around Washington. Schedule Appointment
As the miles pass, the friction and heat from your engine break down your oil, altering its performance. Regular oil changes are crucial to keep your oil — and your engine — in good shape. It's generally recommended you have your oil changed around every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, but you can reference your owner's manual for the correct manufacturer-suggested maintenance interval. You might need an oil change sooner if your engine is making weird noises, the cabin smells like something's burning, the oil dashboard light turns on, your oil level is low or your oil is sludgy. If any of these symptoms show up, call the mobile oil mechanics at Firestone Direct in Washington, DC.
Life gets busy, and that upcoming oil change can easily slip your mind. But what happens if you wait too long between oil changes? Not only can old, sludgy oil lead to decreased engine performance, but waiting too long to get an oil change could void your vehicle warranty and eventually result in engine failure. Don't have time to drive to your nearest Washington auto shop for an oil change? No need to worry! Firestone Direct comes right to you with our mobile oil change service in Washington, DC.
