What Are the Benefits of a Regular Oil Change?

Why do cars need oil changes? If you’ve ever wondered what motor oil does, or why you need to change it regularly, you’ve come to the right place. Motor oil, also called engine oil, lubricates the moving parts of an engine and absorbs the heat caused by the friction of the moving parts, so the engine doesn’t overheat.

Why do we need to change our oil? Over time, the oil breaks down and becomes less effective at preventing overheating. The oil should typically be changed every 5,000 miles, but if you have special synthetic oil in Alpharetta, you may only have to change it every 10,000 miles. Consult your owner’s manual for a specific interval. If you do not change your oil regularly, you could be in danger of permanent damage to your engine. Additional benefits to changing your oil include:

  • Removes dirt and particles in the engine that can cause corrosion
  • Regular oil changes means better gas mileage
  • Improves the lifespan of your car

What Kind of Oil is Needed in Toyota Vehicles?

SAE-0W-20 synthetic oil is the Genuine Toyota motor oil used in Toyota vehicles with a specific additive package. If for whatever reason you do not have access to Genuine Toyota motor oil, other 0W-20 synthetic oils can be substituted, but not long-term. You can use 0W-20 and replace it with genuine Toyota motor oil at your next oil change at your Johns Creek-area service center.

Can You Mix Synthetic Oil with Regular Oil?

This is a common question among Roswell drivers. You actually can mix these two oils together into what’s known as a synthetic blend motor oil. This gives you the performance aspects of synthetic oil without having to pay synthetic oil price. However, this should only be performed in a pinch, and you should only use this until you’re able to get to your nearest Canton service center.

What Type of Oil Change Do I Need?

Depending on your Toyota vehicle, you may need standard conventional oil, synthetic, or something else. To give you an idea of what you might need, here are the different types of oil changes you can get:

  • Full Synthetic Motor Oil: This type of oil is ideal for high-performance vehicles that need much lubrication for the engine parts.
  • Synthetic Blend Motor Oil: Synthetic blend motor oil is a great middle ground as it combines synthetic oil with regular oil, giving you the quality performance of synthetic oil at a cheaper cost. When trying to decide between a synthetic oil change vs. synthetic blend, you can rely on this type of motor oil.
  • Conventional Motor Oil: The most common type of oil, this is used on most lighter-duty, late-model cars. A conventional oil change is used for vehicles with a fairly simple engine design.
  • High Mileage Motor Oil: Designed for cars with more than 75,000 miles, this type of oil reduces oil consumption and leaks.

What Does a Toyota Oil Change Cost?

The price of an oil change will vary depending on what type of vehicle you have and what type of oil is required. Typically, a standard conventional oil change can range anywhere from about $20-$50. A Synthetic oil change can cost between $45-$70. To get a specific quote, you can usually call the service center ahead of time and get a more exact price.
