In today’s society, everyone is on the go, whether it’s school, work, soccer practice, or something else. That being said, it is likely that the majority of your driving occurs in short spurts from one thing to the next, which can actually cause more wear and tear on the engine. It’s important to be aware of this in order to recognize factors that may tighten the gap between oil changes. Entrust your next one with us at Garber Nissan in Saginaw- we make every service appointment a positive experience.
It’s all about options nowadays; there are many choices available for anything and everything we do. This is especially present in the vehicle industry whether it’s dealerships, service centers, body shops, and more. So, how do you determine who to trust to get the job done?
With regards to anything cars, Garber has been a trusted family name for years and continues to be today which makes the decision quite simple. At Garber Nissan, we employ only the most professional, friendly ASE-Certified Technicians who are ready to change your oil and provide a 21-point free inspection to make certain everything is running as desired.
At the Garber Nissan service center in Saginaw, we don’t discriminate. We keep our doors open to all vehicle makes and models, regardless if you bought from us or not. The decision is obvious, pick us for your next oil change and we’re confident you’ll be back.
The simplest answer is this: your oil should be changed on a regular basis. Besides that, oil changes are specific to the vehicle and type of oil used. Some vehicles will need an oil change every 3,000 miles, while others can go up to 7,000 miles or more without needing one. As a rule of thumb, always refer to your owner’s manual for manufacturer guidelines on oil changes or consult with the ASE-Certified Technicians at Garber Nissan.
In some cases, an oil change every 3,000 miles may be necessary, however, every vehicle is different. Assuming a 3,000-mile oil change is correct could end up costing you a lot of money that you don’t need to spend, depending on what is recommended for your specific vehicle. Instead, consult your owner’s manual or a Garber Nissan ASE-Certified Technician for the best-fitting oil change increments.
To give a word of advice- don’t neglect oil changes. Over time, the effectiveness of motor oil diminishes and can lead to things such as oil sludge and corrosion, both of which are harmful to engines. As your vehicle goes longer and longer without an oil change, it will eventually lead to engine damage, leading to serious (and expensive) issues. Oil changes are one of the easiest and least costly vehicle services, so don’t wait for something to break down; take care of the small things.
There are some circumstances that may change the frequency at which your oil needs to be changed. If you regularly drive through conditions that are more strenuous on a car, you may need oil changes more often than other drivers. Some examples of this include: frequently driving through stop-and-go traffic, extreme temperatures, routine trips of only a few miles, or repeated heavy towing.

All engine oil comes with a viscosity classification, which is the resistance to flow for that particular motor oil. With regards to the classification of multi-grade oil, the first number indicates flow when the oil is cold, also known as “winter” grade; the second number indicates the oil’s flow at hot temperatures. Viscosity is important because during an initial vehicle start-up, upper engine parts can rub against each other due to a small concentration of oil. Therefore, the lower the viscosity, the more quickly the oil will flow throughout the engine.
Synthetic oils are an alternative to traditional oils which are composed of chemically compounded lubricants. This type of oil allows for increased viscosity across an extended temperature range. Synthetic oils can also reduce oil thickening, minimize wear on the engine, and increase the load the vehicle is capable of handling.
The courtesy check that Garber Nissan technicians perform is the most efficient way to provide preventative maintenance for your vehicle. We will do a thorough inspection of your vehicle and provide a written report that details approximately when any future maintenance should be completed- so you are left with no surprises.
