Oil Changes

Lube, Oil and Filter

Maintenance Tips/Suggestions:
For best results, consult your owner's manual, but consider that your driving probably constitutes a severe maintenance schedule. Normally, with lower grade oils' this means : oil and filter changes every 3,500 miles or 3 months. An oil change at your local shop: Sounds simple, but there’s some pretty important things to know about preventing oil sludge.


The most important thing you can do to keep your vehicle running for a long time is to change your oil on schedule. 


  • Sampson Automotive uses only AMSOIL 100% synthetic extended interval oils'
  • Nothing else in the market compares and AMSOIL warranties it!
  • You choose from 5,000 miles up to 25,000 mile intervals.

 

With a full service oil change, your other fluids are checked and topped off so you don't run into problems from low fluids. Your technician may see a developing problem and he'll remind you of any other recommended maintenance.


Oil eventually starts to turn into jelly. Literally – petroleum jelly.
Sludge clogs up oil passages and keeps oil from getting to some areas of the engine, causing parts to wear out prematurely. And that means expensive engine repairs.That’s why you need to change the oil and oil filter on schedule – to get the old oil out before it turns to sludge. Your manufacturer will have a recommendation for how many miles you can go between oil changes. They also usually have a number of months between recommended oil changes. That’s because the detergents and other additives in the oil break down over time.

 

Ask our Service Advisor at Sampson Automotive for a recommendation for time and mileage, but you need to remember that it’s based on using the recommended weight of oil. And if your vehicle came from the factory with synthetic oil, the recommended intervals assume you continue to use synthetic.

 

Most owner’s manuals will have a list of driving conditions that are harder on your vehicle. Things like stop and go driving during rush hour on the interstate, short trips or driving in very hot or very cold weather, heavy loads and towing. If some of your driving fits this, you may need to change your oil and do other maintenance on a shorter schedule.

 

This may sound complicated. Some vehicles have an oil life calculator that takes all of these factors into account and tells you when you should change your oil. Otherwise, talk with our Service Advisor about how you drive and get their recommendation for when to take care of your service.

 

Finally, if any of the steering or suspension parts can be lubed, our technicians will take care of that with a lube, oil and filter service.
