If there's one maintenance task that every driver knows about, it's changing the oil. Oil changes are one of the most important things you can do to keep a vehicle in good shape because having clean oil helps lubricate moving parts and prevent wear and tear. However, it's important to know whether you need conventional oil, semi-synthetic oil or full synthetic oil for your vehicle.
Fortunately for you, it's easy to get exactly what your vehicle needs from your next oil change by bringing your vehicle to Roy Schmidt Honda in Effingham, IL. Thanks to years of experience servicing Honda vehicles, we can get your oil changed no matter what make, model and year you drive or what type of oil you need.
When it comes to changing your oil, there are three different types of oil which each has very different characteristics.
If you've got an older vehicle, chances are you have conventional oil that's designed to be changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. If your car is newer, chances are it uses semi-synthetic or full synthetic oil.
Semi-synthetic oil is a lot more effective than conventional oil—meaning you don't have to change it as often—but it's still a bit of a step down from full synthetic.
If you've got a newer vehicle, chances are it uses full synthetic oil which most manufacturers recommend you change every 10,000 miles or so.
Every time you bring your vehicle in for an oil change, you'll also want to get a new oil filter so your new oil stays clean for as long as possible.
At the end of the day, you have plenty of options if you're just looking for an oil change for your Honda. However, if you want the best service from technicians you can count on to do the job right and use the best parts, bringing your Honda to Roy Schmidt Honda is the best decision you can make.
