At SMB Autocentre, we are happy to check the condition of your engine oil at our workshop in Cradley Heath and top it up or carry out an oil change if needed.
How often do you need to change engine oil?
Most manufacturers will recommend an engine oil change twice a year or every 5,000-10,000 miles, but this will depend on the age and mileage of your car, and how much driving you do. If you’re not sure if your engine oil needs changing, get in touch with the team at SMB Autocentre, and we’ll be happy to help you out.
Which is better – synthetic or conventional oil?
Conventional oil comes from crude oil and synthetic oil is man-made, and because it’s designed to take just the best elements from crude oil, it has fewer contaminants than conventional oil. Being a cleaner oil, it flows better which aids lubrication and it’s also less likely to cause sludgy build-ups in the engine. Basically, unless you have a much older vehicle, synthetic oil will be better for your car.
It’s essential to use the correct oil for your car. As a ServiceSure Autocentre, SMB Autocentre’s team have been trained to Oilsure standards, which means we can identify which oil your specific car needs and keep it running at its best.
SMB Autocentre is a Servicesure Autocentre providing you with all the car repairs and services that you’d expect from a quality independent garage. We are situated in Cradley Heath and serve customers around our local area as well as further afield including Halesowen, Quarry Bank, Netherton, and Brierley Hill.
