Oil is the lifeblood of any truck or car — without it, your vehicle simply cannot work. Its purpose is to remove debris, dirt, and contaminants that build up over time and keep the engine and its critical components clean. Our team of certified service technicians at Eastgate Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram routinely perform oil change service in the Lawrence, IN area and are committed to helping you maintain your vehicle to be enjoyed for years to come. When you visit our service department for an oil change, up to five quarts of oil and an OEM filter is replaced on your vehicle. The service technician will also discuss the current condition of your vehicle and make recommendations as needed for additional service or repairs.
Depending upon your make or model, there are four types of oil changes available:
Diesel — when you visit Eastgate CDJR for a diesel oil change, you can expect to receive the same service as a standard oil change service. Our certified factory-trained service technicians will replace and properly recycle your vehicle's current oil and oil filter with specialized diesel oils designed to keep your vehicle's engine performing at its peak.
Conventional — a derivative of petroleum, a conventional oil change is the most widely recommended oil change for many vehicles. Getting your oil changed based on recommended service intervals for your vehicle will ensure your engine runs smoothly and prevent potential damage to engine components.
Full Synthetic — typically recommended for vehicles with mileage over 75,000, full synthetic oil is designed to reduce friction and anti-wear agents needed to protect older engine components and prevent oil leaks.
Semi-Synthetic — this oil contains both synthetic and conventional motor oil but is not as tough as full synthetic oil. However, because it contains conventional oil, it can still be broken down.
Why Are Oil Changes Important?
Failing to get the oil in your vehicle changed based on the recommended service intervals can be detrimental to your vehicle, causing it to become inoperable. Over time, as the oil moves throughout the engine to keep it free from dirt and debris, dirty oil will fail to keep the engine free from this debris causing it to become ineffective.
