Why Get an Oil Change?

The oil in an engine is inevitably exposed to products of internal combustion, including microscopic soot particles that accumulate in the engine during operation. Tiny flecks of metal are also produced by engine parts rubbing together. All of these particles circulate in the oil and grind against the surfaces of various engine parts, causing wear. The oil also undergoes significant thermal and mechanical degradation.

Our Oil Change Service

At Central Lube, we have many options that range from conventional to high-mileage to fully synthetic oil. Each of our complete service oil changes includes up to five quarts of engine oil, a new fuel filter, and a full inspection of all accessible fluid levels, such as differential fluid, transmission fluid, and coolant. Our full-service oil change includes a complimentary vacuum service, window washing, and tire-pressure check. We can also perform annual vehicle inspections to make sure your vehicle complies with safety and emissions regulations.

How Often to Change Oil

Most speedy oil change shops recommend intervals of 3,000 miles or every three months. While modern car manuals now list slightly higher intervals for oil changes and filter replacements, drivers who make regular trips under 10 miles should have their oil changed more frequently. When the engine doesn’t reach its full operating temperature, contaminants like condensation and excess fuel can’t burn off, leading to engine sludge. This happens to many drivers in the stop-and-go traffic of Raleigh, NC.

Many vehicle manufacturers now use engine computers to estimate the oil’s condition based on factors including RPM, engine temperature, and trip length. If your vehicle is equipped with an Oil Life Monitoring system, an optical sensor will come on to let you know when you need to change the oil.

In addition to changing oil, we also provide a number of auto shop services that can help keep your car in prime condition. If your vehicle is in need of other services, get it all done at this one-stop shop for auto service and maintenance. Contact us at (919) 763-1377 (Clayton) or (919) 763-1378 (Smithfield) for more information on our services, to make an appointment at either of our locations, or to learn about our oil change coupons.
