To Change or not to Change, and Why

Have you ever wondered why your car requires an oil change every three, five, or even ten thousand miles? Here at Orr Toyota of Searcy, we have those answers for you!

The reason an oil change is necessary is because the oil acts as a lubricant to keep your Toyota a Toyota! When the oil gets old it becomes less viscous and begins to wear down the point that it's not serving its purpose any longer. Additionally, oil today has numerous additives to help clean the engine, and make sure that your new Toyota continues to run like a charm.

Now, when should you change your oil? This is the question that will get you a different answer from every mechanic in the Searcy, AR. The gold standard used to be 3,000 and 5,000 miles, but that's no longer the case.With modern technology, companies have improved oil to the point that oil and filter changes are required at longer intervals. Of course, that means an oil change will last you longer than ever before!

Drive a new Toyota and we're confident you can go upwards of 10,000 miles unless your car has been driven in extreme heat or cold. In that case, an oil change may be necessary sooner than expected.
