Oil Change Questions and Answers

  • How Often Should I Have My Oil Changed?

    Most modern vehicles will automatically alert you when it’s time for an oil change. For older vehicles, you can consult your owner’s manual or let us do it for you. At Fat Boys, we track your scheduled maintenance and can send you reminders when it’s time for service.

  • What Services Does An Oil Change Include?

    Along with changing and recycling oil, our standard service also includes replacing and recycling used oil filters, monitoring fluid levels, and inspecting your vehicle for any potential mechanical or maintenance issues.

  • Do I Need Synthetic Oil?

    If you travel long distances, tow or haul heavy equipment, or if you drive in extreme weather conditions, upgrading to synthetic oil could help increase your performance and extend your engine life. Although it’s more expensive, synthetic oil allows you to go longer between oil changes. If you drive short distances under regular conditions, conventional oil is typically a more economical option. Follow the recommendations in your owner’s manual for specific guidelines.

  • What’s The Difference Between My Oil Pressure Light and Oil Change Light?

    When you see the dripping oil can light, that means your oil pressure is too low and could indicate your oil levels are either too high or too low, or that you have an oil leak. If your oil pressure light comes on, we recommend having your vehicle inspected in order to avoid damage to your engine.

    The oil maintenance light, on the other hand, is less urgent and typical corresponds with your vehicle’s recommended maintenance schedule.

  • Why Does My Vehicle Smell Like Motor Oil?

    For older vehicles that aren’t equipped with an automatic engine oil light, the smell of motor oil can also indicate that it’s time for service. Other potential symptoms of trouble include excessive exhaust, dark or thick oil, and the sound of knocking or ticking from your engine.
