If you've often found yourself cruising around Staten Island, Todt Hill, and Dongan Hills, New York, you're aware of just how important it is to keep up with your maintenance. After all, frequent drivers are due for oil changes whenever they hit a specific mile mark.

So, when was the last time you set up an oil change near you? If it's been a while, you've come to the right place.

Welcome to Staten Island Buick GMC, your source for the service you need. We'll walk you through the signs you need an oil change, the process itself, and other things our service center offers. Read on for more information.

What Are the Signs I Need an Oil Change?               

Aside from knowing your vehicle's maintenance schedule and expected mile markers, there are a few go-to signs you can look for to see if it's time for an oil change. What are they, you might ask? It depends on the car-but, the results are usually the same.

Picture this: You're out for a drive when, suddenly, you start smelling oil in the cabin. This might be a burning kind of smell, distinct in nature. This is a hint that it's time.

There are other signs, too, including:

  • Heavy exhaust from the tailpipe
  • Knocking sounds in the engine
  • Dark and dirty oil

What's the Process Like?

So, when it comes down to it, what does the process actually entail? When you come in for an oil change, our technicians will gladly walk you through it. You can expect the entire process to take no more than 30 to 45 minutes.

First, we'll start by popping the hood and removing the oil cap. Then, the old oil-evidenced by its dark and dirty color-is drained. The oil filter is also removed. The clean oil will be a clear amber color as we replace the old with the new, install a new filter, and put the cap back on.

After a standard system test, your car keys will be back in your hands.
