Do oil changes actually matter?

Oil changes are one of the most important pieces of maintenance since oil is a lubricant for the engine. Low-quality oil reduces lubrication for the engine, leading to a risk of damage. With regular oil changes, your engine always has enough lubrication, delivering a smooth ride.

How to tell I need an oil change?

Check your owner's manual for your Toyota's recommended oil change intervals, between 3,000 and 10,000 miles. You may need the oil changed early in some of the following situations:

  • Engine runs more loudly than normal.
  • Check engine light turns on.
  • Oil appears dark or silty.
  • Oil levels have dropped.

How to check the oil?

To see if the oil needs to be changed or replaced, follow these steps:

  • Turn off the engine and wait 10 minutes or more.
  • Pop the hood, finding the dipstick.
  • Remove the dipstick, cleaning it using a lint-free cloth.
  • Put the dipstick back, pulling it out again to check the oil level.

If the oil appears black or dark brown with silt and floating particles, have the technicians at Vaden Toyota examine it.
