Gladewater oil change facility

Schedule an Oil Change

To say that oil changes are important would be an understatement. Here at our Gladewater service center, we've seen drivers get oil changes religiously and dramatically extend their vehicles' lives; we've also seen drivers ignore the need for oil changes and seize their engines well before their time.

So, what makes oil changes so important?

Why Do I Have to Change My Oil?

Clean oil is crucial to protecting your engine's performance, as it helps to keep everything moving smoothly. Your engine is comprised of more articulating parts than you might realize, and clean, quality oil works to coat, cool, clean, and lubricate all of these parts to prevent premature wear and tear and other serious problems.

As your engine cleans dust, dirt, and debris from your engine's parts to prevent damage, they're captured by your oil filter so that they don't re-enter your engine. Over time, the filter will become dirty and the engine oil will begin to break down. This is what makes routine oil and filter changes so crucial. At our Gladewater service and car parts department, our experts can replace your oil and filter with the quality parts you need for continued performance.

What Happens if I Don't Change My Oil?

While we certainly don't believe in scare tactics here at McKAIG Chevrolet Buick, there's no denying the truth: failing to change your oil can have some serious consequences. In a worst case, your engine can seize and keep your vehicle from running at all.

In less severe situations, failing to change your oil can cause overheating, premature wear and tear to your engine's parts and seals, and other expensive issues. While these issues won't pop up overnight if you miss your oil change due date by a few weeks, you can certainly expect lasting issues if you keep on ignoring your vehicle's needs.
