Oil Change in Poughkeepsie, NY

Have Your Oil Changed at Healey Chevrolet

The best way to ensure that your Chevrolet vehicle is ready for any Poughkeepsie, Fishkill, or Beacon commute is to have it routinely maintained and serviced. While your vehicle requires many maintenance and repair services, the oil and filter change is one of the most important. If your change oil light appears, don't delay to schedule your next oil change at our Healey Chevrolet service center.

 

Why is an Oil Change Important?

The oil in your engine does three main jobs: lubricates, cools, and cleans. The oil makes the movement of the interior parts of the engine smooth and helps to keep the engine at a good temperature along the way. It also picks up any debris or metal shavings and runs them through the filter, helping your engine stay in great shape.

As you drive, the oil will start to degrade with use. Once it becomes too thick or thin, it will need to be changed. If left unchanged, it will cause greater damage to your engine because it will stop doing the tasks it's created to do. Typically, this engine repair can be quite extensive and cost a pretty penny to fix or replace.

When Does the Oil Need to Be Changed?

Every vehicle has its own recommended oil change guidelines, which can normally be found in the owner's manual. That being said, most modern vehicles recommend changing the oil between 7,500 and 10,000 miles. If your change oil light comes on, though, you'll want to schedule an oil change appointment as soon as possible.

How Much Does an Oil Change Cost?

The cost of an oil change depends on the type of vehicle you have and the type of oil it requires. An oil change using conventional oil typically costs between $35 and $75, while an oil change using synthetic oil is more expensive, with prices between $65 to $125. To find the exact price, we suggest contacting our Healey Chevrolet service center and talking with one of our technicians. We can give you an exact price and may be able to find a service special to lower the cost.

What's the Difference Between Conventional and Synthetic Oil?

Conventional motor oil is refined from the ground and is considered a crude oil. It tends to be less expensive than synthetic oil, but doesn't offer the long-lasting benefits synthetic oil provides. Synthetic oil is manufactured from petroleum components and other materials to create a blend that matches the specifications of a vehicle engine. Synthetic oil is more expensive, but is long-lasting and helps decrease the friction inside your engine.

What Happens During an Oil Change?

An oil change is a simple, routine car service that takes less than an hour to perform. The technician will unplug and drain the dirty oil, removing the filter in the process. After a quick inspection, a new filter and oil will be placed. Sometimes, additional routine maintenance items or inspections will also be performed, including tire rotations, brake inspections, and more.
