What Is a Full-Service Oil Change?


Why Is an Oil Change So Important?

Getting an oil change periodically is like taking your car to the doctor: it’s easy to put off, but at your own risk. That’s because, over time, the motor oil in your car breaks down. Eventually, there’s nothing left to protect your engine, which can lead to severe engine damage. That’s why getting your regular oil change is so important.

But you shouldn’t just get any old oil change. There’s a big difference between a conventional oil change and a full-service one, and it can mean all the difference for your vehicle’s long-term performance.

How Often Should I Change My Oil?

Knowing when and how often to change your oil is the first step to making sure you’re getting proper oil maintenance. Typically, an automotive service center will use an either/or system using miles and a calendar date. If you travel 3,000 miles before the calendar date, you take your car in once you reach 3,000 miles. If not, you take your car in for a new oil change on the calendar date.

Newer Chevrolet models, however, are equipped with the engine Oil Life System (OLS). The OLS system can monitor the surrounding area’s climate conditions and your personal driving habits to calculate a more precise and personalized date.

And with the advancements of the OLS system, those new models have a much longer range between oil changes. Each vehicle is specific, however, so you’ll need to consult your owner’s manual for the timetable for your specific vehicle.

The Benefits of Getting a Full-Service Oil Change from a Dealership

You might be getting your regular oil change on time, but what kind of oil change are you getting? There’s a big difference between a conventional oil change using conventional motor oil and a full-service oil change using a variety of oils such as premium synthetic motor oil.

Conventional motor oil uses less refined base oils while the synthetic motor oil often used in full-service oil changes is of a higher refinement. That means with conventional motor oil your engine will wear down faster and sludge will build up at a faster rate.

Over time, getting regular full-service oil changes will make a big difference in the condition of your engine on multiple levels. Typically, Chevrolet Certified Service experts like those at Spitzer Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac offer a wide range of motor oils, including:

  • ACDelco Conventional Oil
  • ACDelco dexos1TM Full Synthetic Oil
  • And the highest-grade synthetic motor oil offered, Mobil 1 Full Synthetic Oil

Receiving a full-service oil change means Chevrolet Certified Service experts will inspect your vehicle and identify the most optimal motor oil available for the best performance.
