Your vehicle needs an oil change regularly to keep your engine running well. The oil works to lubricate the moving parts in your vehicle’s engine, and it also absorbs heat so that while the engine is running, it does not overheat. Conventional oil (as opposed to synthetic oil) is the standard choice for most cars to keep them operating with peak performance. Running your vehicle without enough oil, or with contaminated oil (caused by a blocked oil filter from waiting too long in between oil changes) can cause severe and costly damage to your engine!
The Briggs Nissan factory-trained technicians will start by checking your vehicle’s current oil levels and the oil’s condition to see how well it’s been maintained. This can give them an idea of whether to check for any damage or other issues during their assessment. The next step is to get out with the old, to make room for the new! The technician will remove the oil pan to drain out the old oil. Before adding the new oil, they will check the oil filter to make sure it is still in good condition. This is to ensure that your filter is working to remove any impurities before the oil is funneled into the engine. If the filter needs to be replaced, the technician will do this, and then replace the oil. The type of oil you need is determined by your vehicle’s service manual, and the technician can assist with the right choice for you.
Rest assured with your new oil and filter, you’re receiving genuine parts and accessories from Briggs Nissan to ensure the highest quality service and top performance of your vehicle.
