When Should I Get My Oil Changed?

You may have heard that keeping up with regular vehicle oil changes is essential for performance and longevity. Not sure what that timeline looks like for your car or SUV? We have you covered here at Fremont Toyota! Keep reading to learn more about a few ways you can tell if your vehicle is in need of an appointment and how convenient our Service Department is.

Warning Light

First off, we’ll cover the most obvious sign – a small light going off on your dashboard. Usually present with an oil can icon, this light is triggered when the system senses a lack of oil. The thing to keep in mind here is that oftentimes this light won’t go off until the oil supply is desperately low. This means that if you see the warning light, heading over to get an oil change as soon as possible is the best practice.

Checking Under the Hood

Getting ahead of the game can help ensure that you don’t run out of engine oil and that you get to make an appointment when it’s most convenient for your schedule. You can check the oil level at any time by popping open the hood and taking a look at the oil container. If you’re not sure where it’s located, your Owner’s Manual should have a diagram to help. Once you’ve opened the oil container, pull out the dipstick and look for two marking annotations. You always want the oil residue to be above the lowest marking. This is especially important during cold weather, when the oil has a greater chance of freezing or losing viscosity.

The Importance of Clean Engine Oil

Even if it seems that you have a good supply oil, it’s still very important to be mindful of how long it has been since that oil was replaced. As you drive, dirt and debris will begin to get trapped in the oil, which can create harmful corrosion as it moves through the engine. Having clean oil is just as necessary as having enough oil, which is why we suggest stopping by our service bay every six months or so. When you come see us during our convenient Monday through Saturday business hours, we can also create a customized plan for your make, model, and age, taking into account your driving style as well. If you have any immediate questions, don’t hesitate to complete our Ask a Tech form!

When should I get my oil changed? It’s a common inquiry and we hope that you now feel confident in the answer! Come to Fremont Toyota and let our expert mechanics give your vehicle the attention it deserves.

I have a 2019 Prius. It has not needed service for anything other than regular maintenance. However, I had an intermittent problem with my navigation system. Of course, when I was at the dealership, I could not replicate the problem! This did not matter. I explained the problem to Pat O'Brien, the service guru, He listened to me and said that he would talk with the technician. It was obvious, too, that Pat had a lot of respect for the tech's knowledge. I like that! In any event, the solution to the problem was found..... Within 90 minutes, I was out the door! Thanks!

The service at this dealer ship is wonderful. I usually see Mickey who always gives me great advise and takes great care of me. I saw a different gentleman today and he was just as nice. I would give a 5 star rating but, it took 3 hours for service. Also, I got a phone call about 10 minuted after dropping off my car from a salesman who was trying to sell me a new car. My car is 5 years old with low miles, why do I need a new car? I politely declined. I didn't appreciate the call at all. He did not tell me who or why he was calling at first. Made me think there was something wrong with my car. Then an hour or so after I got home, I got a text asking if I could afford $91.00 more for a new 2020 Toyota Camry. I let them know I had already decline their sales pitch and didn't appreciate the text. LISTEN TOYOTA, if I wanted a new car while I was there I would have approached someone. The call and text was not appreciated!

About a year ago, I requested an online quote for a 2019 RAV4 and decided to wait it out for an APR special. Ken was understanding and reached out every couple of months to keep me updated. I finally went in and bought a 2020 RAV4. The experience was great, and Ken made sure I walked out happy with the deal I got.

Vehicle was listed on the website, I sent a email and received one back the next morning, mr Davar was nice and very professional. I would’ve liked finance to work with me on the price however we got whatever needed to be done. Removed one star because the vehicle was not properly Detailed, floor mats where not inside the vehicle at the time of the showing. The vehicle also was on empty so when I drove the vehicle off the lot I had to fill it up myself.its. Ice to have a used car but it would be better if it was treated as a new car. I was also told this vehicle is NOT a Toyota certified used vehicle and I would like to know why not? Overall I’m happy with our purchase but those minor details makes a world of difference. Thx.
