Oil Change Service

As a Tampa driver, you know it’s important to get your oil changed regularly, but why do we do it? How do we do it? Find out with Cox Mazda then contact us to schedule service!

Why Get an Oil Change?

Oil is meant to lubricate the engine and absorb heat, but as time goes on, engine oil wears out. At this point, the oil becomes less effective, which can cause major stress on the engine. As such, it’s important to change engine oil before it breaks down on a Sarasota highway. Also, don’t neglect to check, replenish and change your other fluids, like your transmission fluid!

What Happens with an Oil Change?

Oil should be changed at regular intervals, and those intervals depend on your specific make and model and the type of oil your engine requires. When you or a technician change your vehicle’s oil, you replace the old oil with fresh oil and a new oil filter to optimize efficiency and maximize your engine’s functionality.
