You know your truck needs regular oil changes. But just how "regular" is regular enough?
We've got the lowdown on why and when to schedule a lube, oil, and filter change in Butte. (We've also got a great offer on new F-150s for sale, so scroll down if you're interested!)
Why Butte Trucks Need Frequent Oil Changes
First things first: what does your truck's engine oil actually do?
Because your engine generates a lot of heat, it needs oil circulating through it to help cool things down. Oil lubricates the working components inside your engine and reduces the amount of friction between them, helping your engine run more smoothly.
So where does this "filter" come into play? During the combustion process, harmful particles are created in your engine, which the oil absorbs and directs to the oil filter. The filter, well, filters out the debris, so your truck is left with clean, free-flowing oil.
All this means that a regular oil change in Butte keeps your engine running the way it's supposed to. Without this important preventative service, your Montana truck could suffer from an overworked engine, excess heat, corrosion, and even engine failure.
When to Get a Lube, Oil, and Filter Change in Butte
Okay, so you're convinced about the benefits of frequent oil changes. But how often do you really need to take your truck in?
We'll give the boring answer first: however often your owner's manual tells you to. Every vehicle is different, so every manufacturer will have a different recommendation for your specific truck model.
Generally speaking, though, you'll want to get a Butte lube, oil, and filter change about every three months or 3,000 miles. If you've got a newer vehicle that takes synthetic oil, you can get by with getting your truck serviced every 5,000 or even 10,000 miles (again, depending on your specific vehicle requirements).
