Why are regular oil changes so important?


Many Hyundai owners in Plano, Texas, make Huffines Hyundai Plano their preferred place for oil changes because of our top-quality service and competitive pricing. Our factory-trained technicians have extensive experience in performing oil changes on Hyundai vehicles, so they know exactly what your car needs to stay in tiptop condition.

Routine oil changes ensure your engine will always have the fresh and clean oil it needs to remain in good working condition. The following are a few good reasons why you should regularly take your car to a service center for an oil change:

Better Performance

The engine is made up of many components that move at high speeds when your vehicle is in operation. These parts won't be able to work smoothly without sufficient lubrication. Consequently, your engine will become more sluggish and strained, resulting in poorer performance. Changing your engine oil regularly keeps the moving parts of your engine well-lubricated and helps your vehicle reach peak performance.

Improved Fuel Economy

Besides undermining the performance of your vehicle, poor engine lubrication can also lead to higher fuel consumption. When its components aren't properly lubricated, your engine has to put in extra effort to produce the power needed to move your car. As a result, it uses more fuel than normal. Making sure your car has clean oil can help you save on gas.

Fewer Repairs

When your engine oil is old and dirty, the components of your engine experience more friction while they're moving. This can lead to increased wear and tear and overheating. As such, some parts of your engine may become worn or damaged, which can lead to high repair costs. You can prevent expensive engine repairs by getting regular oil changes.

How Often Should You Bring Your Vehicle In for an Oil Change?

With modern lubricants, most vehicles can go 5,000 to 7,500 miles between oil changes. If you opt for full-synthetic engine oil, you may only have to change your oil once every 10,000 to 15,000 miles. However, different Hyundai models may have different recommended oil change schedules, so it's best to check your owner's manual.

What Happens During an Oil Change Service at Huffines Hyundai Plano?

At Huffines Hyundai Plano, an oil change is more than just changing the engine oil in your vehicle. We perform a few additional tasks to give your car the best possible care. When you bring your Hyundai vehicle to our service center for an oil change, our technician will check the engine oil level and then let the oil drain out. Next, they'll examine the oil filter and replace it with a new one if needed. 

By now, the old oil should be completely drained out. The technician will then put the oil pan back in place and refill the engine with new oil. After the oil change, we'll perform a complimentary multi-point inspection of your car to make sure everything is working properly.
