Hoover Chevrolet is proud to offer Chevrolet Certified Service. Our technicians are required to go through training with GM, ASE and Hendrick Automotive Group. They are experts on all your car needs. An oil change is simple but is an important maintenance needed for your vehicle. During a lube, oil, and filter change, all important joints of your vehicle are lubricated and it is put up on a lift to drain out all the used oil. At this time the technician removes the dirty oil filter and replaces it with a new prepared oil filter. When the filter, and drain plug is replaced, the recommended amount of new oil can be added in the fill hole. Once that is complete the technician will check the oil with the dip stick to make sure the level of oil is correct in the engine. If everything was installed correctly there should be no leaks and the oil pressure should be normal when the engine is started. The frequency of needing a lube, oil and filter change is dependent on the type of vehicle, oil, and your personal driving habits. Most new Chevrolet vehicles are now equipped with the Engine Oil Life (OLS) System, which helps judge the right time to get a lube, oil, and filter change. The OLS system monitors the vehicles speed and engine temperature to better determine when the oil life cycle is complete. Instead of counting the miles until your next oil change, just wait for the OLS light to come on and bring the vehicle in to be serviced. Regular lube, oil, and filter changes are very important for the life of the vehicle. Like blood in human bodies, oil keeps all the parts of the engine moving. Without the lubrication of oil, extensive friction and heat will cause the metal of the engine to melt together and seize, ruining the engine. Dirty oil, although better than no oil, is very abrasive and will eventually cause your engine to fail. Healthy maintenance habits will help you get the very most out of your vehicle.
