New car owners should be knowledgeable about oil changes in order to keep their car in the best condition. Whether you are able to change the oil yourself, or must get your oil changed professionally, it is important to routinely maintain proper oil levels.


How to Change Oil

If you are interested in how to change oil, it is necessary to have supervision by a professional before attempting for the first time. The first step is to drain the old oil out of your car. Open the drain plug underneath your vehicle and empty the old oil into some type of container. The oil then needs to be removed from the filter and the filter replaced. Then new oil needs to be poured into the oil filler opening under the hood of your car. 

  

These are general steps for changing your own oil. The actual process is much more detailed and difficult. Changing the oil in your car should not be attempted without a professional or until you are completely comfortable doing it without assistance. If you are not feeling confident when it comes to changing your oil, fret not. Stop into Raymond Chevrolet today and our service technicians can gladly do it for you! You can make an appointment today online or you can give us a call at (844) 338-9123.

How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

How often should you change your oil depends on the type of car you have.  Generally, most cars require a full-service oil change every 3,000 miles. Some cars use a different type of oil that requires an oil change every 5,000 miles. This may seem like a better, more cost-effective option, however the oil is more expensive, so it evens out in the end. Either way, check your car manual for the specific frequency of oil change required for your model car.
