Oil & lube changing 101: here are simple oil change instructions that you can easily follow.
Regular oil and filter changes are the biggest favor you can do for your vehicle. Oil loses its lubrication with use and must be changed frequently. The type of vehicle, climate and type of driving affects which oil your vehicle requires. Oil breaks down over time and must be replaced, even if you don’t drive your vehicle often.
Consult your owner’s manual for recommended service intervals, capacity, oil viscosity and type. Advance Auto Parts has the quality auto parts you need for a proper oil & lube job.
