Why should I change my oil?
- Reduced fuel economy
- Premature engine wear
- Overheating engine
- Expensive maintenance
Changing your oil during the manufacturer-recommended service intervals will help prevent engine damage and costly repairs, keeping you worry-free on the road.
When should I change my oil?
- Dirty oil:Your oil should always be at a manufacturer-recommended operating level—indicated on your dipstick—and relatively clean: amber, light-brown color and transparent. If it is dark, black or opaque, your oil is dirty and may need to be changed.
- Check Engine / Oil Change dashboard light: If your Oil Change dashboard light is on, you are low on oil. The Check Engine dashboard light can indicate many different issues, other than just low oil, but it can illuminate too if a lack of oil lubrication is putting your engine’s health at risk.
- Engine overheating: High temperatures can cause serious damage to an engine. This can occur when oil is old or below the proper operating level, causing the moving engine parts to overheat.
- Strange engine sounds: Tapping, knocking or grinding engine sounds are not good. This usually means you have very low oil, and the moving engine parts are poorly lubricated—hitting metal on metal—and causing serious damage.
- Engine oil leak: Oil under your car or on different engine parts indicates you have an oil leak, and requires maintenance.
Don’t wait for these signs to change your oil. Check your car owner’s manual to confirm your service intervals and schedule your next oil change at your local Big O Tires store today!

Why should I change my filters?
Your engine air filter gets dirty and damaged over time, keeping debris and other contaminants out. The older and dirtier your filter gets, the less effective it becomes – decreasing the efficiency of your engine. That means poor fuel efficiency and potential premature engine wear.
Your cabin air filter does the same thing for you and your passengers – keeping the air you breathe in your vehicle free of pollen, dust and harmful pollutants. The cabin air filter is also part of your vehicle’s HVAC system, helping keep your heat and air conditioning working well.
Your fuel filter blocks contaminants out of your gas and fuel system, keeping your engine clean and powerful.
When should I change my filters?
For most vehicles, the engine air filter should be replaced every 12-18 months or 10,000-15,000 miles, but always refer to your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation.
For the cabin filter, replace it every 12,000-30,000 miles – based on your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation and air quality inside your car.
For most vehicles, the fuel filter should be replaced every 24,000 miles or every two years. Some vehicles can go 30,000-50,000 miles, so always check your owner’s manual and go by your vehicle manufacturer’s recommended service intervals.
