Oil Change Service in London, Ontario with Finch Direct

The Smartest Way To Keep Your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram Vehicle Performing At Its Peak

The idea of going to a dealership service department doesn’t usually strike joy in anyone—boring waiting rooms masked as “lounges,” with nearly undrinkable coffee and stale donuts—but regular maintenance is one of the easiest ways to keep your vehicle in excellent shape, and it’s really not that expensive either. One of the most important aspects or vehicle maintenance is, without a doubt, engine oil. That's why we've broken down the importance of changing your engine's oil below.

Here at Finch Chrysler, we wanted to make it easy for our customers in London and surrounding areas, so we came up with Finch Direct Service.

Simply give us a call or click the Finch Direct Service link here, fill out our quick and easy form, and we’ll take it from there. Now, there's no excuse not to get that oil change!

Why Is Changing Your Oil So Important?

It may be a cliche, but it’s a cliche for a good reason—your engine’s oil is its lifeblood, and failing to maintain it is just asking for trouble. Though it’s easy to overlook, a quick and easy oil change now has the ability to save you from incurring some serious costs down the road due to significant engine damage. 

Your engine is made up of a lot of parts, all precisely engineered to get the best performance out of your vehicle. With these parts in near constant motion, while you’re driving at least, they can create a great deal of friction. When your engine has the proper levels of oil in it, these parts are lubricated and can do their job with ease. But when your oil levels are low, and your engine isn’t lubricated, that friction can cause some serious (and seriously expensive) damage.

The importance of engine oil doesn’t start and stop here; it plays a vital role in many other aspects of your vehicle’s performance, like drawing heat away from your engine’s combustion chamber when it starts to get really hot, or preventing carbon buildup inside the engine. Simply put, changing your oil is the easiest and most effective way to keep your vehicle running—and running well.

What Are The Benefits of Regular Oil Changes?

Well, in addition to avoiding costly engine repair bills by regularly changing your oil and performing the manufacturer suggested maintenance, your vehicle will just plain perform better. Get the most out of your Dodge Charger’s powerful engine, or enjoy more weekends exploring in your Jeep Wrangler by performing this simple maintenance—rather than having to catch the bus because your vehicle’s in the shop. And with our hassle-free Finch Direct Service, getting an oil change couldn’t be any simpler.

How Often Should I Change My Oil?

Now that you’re aware just how important changing your oil is, you might be a bit worried about what kind of shape your engine oil is currently in. Luckily, most new vehicles—including the lineup of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram models sold at Finch Chrysler—come equipped with advanced oil systems that factor vehicle speed, engine temperature, external temperature, and even your driving habits, to best gauge how often you’ll need to change your oil. However, if your vehicle tells you that your engine’s oil pressure is low, your best bet is to get off the road as quickly (and safely) as possible. From there, you can let your engine cool down, check its oil levels, or contact Roadside Assistance.

There’s no magic number when it comes to how often you need to get your oil changed; as we mentioned before, a number of factors can play into how fast your vehicle goes through its oil. For example, one factor in how quickly your vehicle will work through its oil is the type of terrain you drive on; lots of off-roading in your Jeep will cause more strain than a simple commute to and from work on flat ground. To be safe, you can’t go wrong changing your oil roughly every 5,000 to 7,500 kilometres (for most vehicles). It’s worth noting that we can witness some pretty extreme temperature shifts in Canada, so it’s not a bad call to have your oil changed in the spring and fall—to prepare for the more severe seasonal temperature changes. But if you’re ever in need of a second opinion, the team at Finch Chrysler will be happy to help.
