How Often Should You Get an Oil Change?
If you're unsure how often your truck needs to get its oil changed, Big Rig Express Lube offers recommendations to help you keep on top of them. If you own semi-trucks, the general rule is to bring them in for an oil change every 25,000 miles. However, keep in mind that the time between oil changes differs for every vehicle based on mileage, weather conditions, and driving habits.
Here is a list of warning signs to keep an eye out for. Any of the following could mean you're overdue for an oil change:
- Knocking sound coming from the engine
- Resistance when changing gears
- Excessive vibration when the truck is idling
- The emergency check engine light pops up
- The oil is dark and has an irregular texture
- You can't remember the last time you had an oil change
When we give you an oil change, we'll let you know when to return, so you don't need to calculate it yourself. Give us a call or drop in for a free estimate if you're unsure whether your truck requires an oil change.
Save Money with Regular Premium Oil Changes
When a vehicle goes too long without receiving an oil change, your vehicle becomes prone to extensive damage that can render it unsalvageable. For instance, using old oil can cause the gasket to blow, warping parts of the engine.
Repairing this damage or replacing the engine comes at a cost that far outweighs the basic fee of an oil change. When you drop off your truck at our shop, we'll perform complete oil changes and let you know when to return. You can leave our lot with the peace of mind of knowing you're saving thousands on having to repair unnecessary engine damages.
