How do you know your car needs an oil change?

If you're uncertain about the frequency of oil changes needed for your car, it typically varies based on your driving habits, including whether you engage in frequent towing or experience a lot of stop-and-go traffic.

Generally, it's advisable to change the oil every 5,000 to 10,000 km or at least every six months.

Here are a few indicators that it might be time to change your car's oil:

  • The activation of the check engine or oil light
  • The presence of dark, dirty oil, as opposed to the ideal light golden, clear appearance.
  • Visible smoke emitting from your exhaust pipe.
  • Audible knocking sounds or other noises from the engine, which suggest the oil is failing to lubricate essential components effectively, leading to friction and wear. If you notice this, it’s crucial to consult a mechanic immediately!

Sometimes your vehicle may need more than an oil change for it's regularly schedule service. You can find more information on that by reading our blog or asking our friendly team at one of our workshop locations

The Oil Change Process at Bosch Service Brisbane

Our experienced mechanics at Bosch ensure a quick and efficient oil change for every customer. While the specific steps may vary slightly depending on the vehicle, the general process remains consistent. Here’s what you can expect when you bring your car in for an oil change:

  • Engine Warm-Up: We start by running your car for a few minutes to warm up the oil, which helps it drain out more smoothly.
  • Vehicle Lifting: Using state-of-the-art workshop equipment, we lift your vehicle to allow easy access to the oil reservoir underneath.
  • Draining the Oil: We position a pan under the sump plug, loosen it with a hex socket, and let the old oil drain out for about 5-10 minutes.
  • Sump Plug and Washer: Once the oil has fully drained, we inspect the sump plug and washer, replace them if necessary, and tighten them securely.
  • Oil Filter Replacement: We carefully remove the old oil filter, ensuring any remaining oil is captured in the pan, and then install a new filter.
  • Refilling Oil: Fresh, high-quality oil is then poured in to reach the optimal level for your specific car model.
  • Leak Check: After running the car briefly, we turn off the engine and check for any signs of leaks around the sump plug and oil filter.
  • Final Checks: We clean the area, check the dipstick to ensure the oil level is correct, and confirm there are no leaks.
  • Ready to Go: With the process complete and everything checked, your car is ready to hit the road with fresh oil.

Why Regular Oil Changes are Crucial for Your Vehicle's Health

Regular oil changes are more than just routine maintenance; they are vital to the longevity and performance of your vehicle. Fresh oil lubricates and cools the engine, minimising wear and tear on moving parts. Over time, oil breaks down and becomes contaminated with dirt and debris, which can damage internal components. By changing your oil regularly, you not only extend the life of your engine but also maintain its efficiency and prevent more costly repairs down the line. At Bosch Service Brisbane, we ensure that your vehicle always receives the best care with high-quality oils suited to your specific model, helping to keep your car running smoothly and reliably.
