Why Are Oil Changes Important?

Oil changes are vital for your vehicle’s performance. When the time comes to have your oil changed, you won’t want to put it off for too long, because it’ll eventually affect your vehicle’s performance, efficiency, and even health.

There are many ways that oil helps your vehicle. It lubricates and cools the moving metal parts in your engine, so they can move fluidly without creating friction that would otherwise result in your engine overheating. Oil also helps keep the parts clean by absorbing grease and debris. However, over enough time of absorbing grease and breaking down due to the engine heat, your oil will need to be changed.

How Long Will My Oil Change Take?

When the time comes to have your oil changed, it won’t take too long. Our technicians are well-versed with oil changes as they do them several time a day, so they’re very efficient.

Generally, the oil change could take up to 30-45 minutes because the process involves raising your vehicle and draining the original oil. Once it’s fully drained, the new oil will be put in. However, the process could take up to an hour or more because, on top of changing the oil, we do a multi-point inspection to your vehicle to ensure that everything looks good.

After the inspection is done, and your oil change has been completed, you’ll be ready to take your Genesis model back out on the road!
