About Low-mileage Oil Change Intervals

Clean oil is vital for proper functioning of the engine. The oil lubricates engine components while reducing harmful friction. Oil also ensures a good seal between the cylinder walls, pistons and rings. Over time, the oil contains carbon and dirt. If not changed regularly, these particles along with varnish accumulate, which have the potential to damage the engine.

When a vehicle owner brings their vehicle to Herb Chambers Maserati of Warwick for an oil change, technicians also check the condition of the air filter and the levels of antifreeze, brake fluid, transmission and power steering fluids. These are topped off if needed. Various components of the drive train are also lubricated.

The time frame between oil changes varies from one vehicle to the next. Owners should consult with the vehicle's manual to ensure that changes occur according to the manufacturer's recommendations. Oil changes are typically needed every 3,000 to 7,000 miles.
