We can help you determine how often to bring the car in for its oil change.

Which Oil Is Right for my Vehicle?Choosing a grade of oil isn’t something most people have much experience doing. The oil change specialists at the Georgetown location of Lamb’s Tire & Automotive will discuss it with you and recommend the oil that is best for your engine. These are some of the considerations in choosing a grade of oil right for your car:
- The year, make and model of your vehicle
- Whether you frequently haul or tow heavy loads
- How much mileage you have on your car or truck
- Your driving habits
- The climate or weather conditions you normally drive in
How Often Should I Get the Oil Changed?Most automotive experts say every 3,000 miles or every three months, depending on how you drive. It’s also a good idea to read the manufacturer’s information in your owner’s manual to see what they recommend. In between your regular oil changes, you can help by checking the oil every few gas fill-ups. Experts say that one quart loss every 1,000 miles is about normal. If you see more loss than that between your own checks, you may have a leak or the engine is burning oil. Neither is good, so make an appointment to have a professional at Lamb’s find out what’s causing excessive oil use.
