Lakewood Ranch Drivers Can Come to Cox Mazda for Oil Changes and More
Looking to get your oil changed? Our Lakewood Ranch-area Mazda dealership is one of the best places in the area to get your oil and filter changed by a team of specially trained Mazda mechanics. We have a fully staffed service department that can take care of any other maintenance you need too.
Our service department is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
How Oil Protects Your Engine
Your engine has a lot of moving metal parts that rub up against each other during operation. This friction has the potential to create a lot of heat, which can in turn warp or damage these parts. Motor oil works to reduce friction and heat, as well as carry harmful foreign particles away from the engine and to the filter.
Over time, though, the filter becomes overly clogged and needs to be changed and the oil’s additives expire. Making sure you get regular changes can help to reduce the risk of an expensive breakdown in the future, as well as extend the life of your vehicle.
When to Get Your Oil Changed
Usually between 5000 and 7000 miles is when you should get an oil change, but every model is a little different. Your vehicle’s manual contains a service schedule with recommended maintenance intervals for your different systems. This not only includes when you should get oil changes, but also other maintenance like timing belt replacements, tire rotations, and front end alignments.
