Oil Change

Having a regular oil change done on your car is one of the most basic service you can do in an effort to prolong the life of your car. Doing this regularly will protect the investment you made when you bought your car. Why risk it when you can bring it into the technicians at Chico Car Care in Chico for a quick oil change that helps it last for many, many years to come.

How often should you have an oil change done on your car? The first recommendation that Chico Car Care gives its customers is to check their owner’s manual. It isn’t some big stuffy book full of legal documents - it’s full of useful information about your car! If you don’t know where your owner’s manual is, or just want some general advice, the general timeline is every 3,000 miles. Going longer is possible on newer models, but why risk it? Your oil can break down due to heat, long road trips on the fast highways around Chico and unburned gasoline getting into the fuel system. What’s even worse is your oil can contain dirt and metal shards that actually damage the very systems the oil is meant to protect.

Chico Car Care doesn’t want you to put your car at risk of damage by neglecting having timely oil changes. We’re here in Chico to help keep your car on the road for many years to come. Placing a call ahead of time to our friendly support staff can find you just the right appointment time that has your car's oil changed over a lunch break or while you’re in Chico doing some shopping.
