Oil Change FAQ

Your engine works hard! Oil keeps your engine properly lubricated, which in turn prevents the engine’s fast-moving parts from overheating or wearing down. Whether your engine calls for conventional or synthetic oil, the oil breaks down over time, becoming dirty and ineffective. This leads to poor vehicle performance and lower gas mileage. It may even cause engine damage. Clean oil extends the life of your engine and keeps it performing properly.
Keeping up with regular oil changes is the simplest thing you can do to keep your vehicle in great shape. By providing the lubrication your engine needs, regular oil changes remove dirt and grit, reduce friction, cool engine components, and protect against premature wear or breakdowns. Most drivers notice improved vehicle performance and smoother driving after an oil change. 
The best oil change schedule for your vehicle will depend on a number of factors – like driving habits, vehicle age, and oil quality – but having your oil changed every 3000 miles is a good rule of thumb. If your vehicle is new, it’s safe to wait a little longer between oil changes. Feel free to ask us about the best schedule for your vehicle. 

Sometimes, you’ll need to change your oil before you hit the 3000 mile mark. If you notice any of the following signs, it’s important to schedule an oil change as soon as possible.

  • Dark or dirty oil
  • Burnt smell in the cabin
  • Loud noises from the engine
  • Sluggish acceleration
  • Illuminated oil change light
  • Illuminated check engine light

Making sure you have your oil changed regularly or whenever you notice these signs is key to ensuring the long-term health of your vehicle.

Aarrow Transmission provides oil change services for all Short Pump, Glen Allen, and Midlothian vehicles. Depending on your vehicle’s make and model, you may require a conventional motor oil, synthetic oil, or a blend of the two. If you’re not sure which option is right for your vehicle, feel free to ask! We’ll be sure to point you in the right direction. 

Your regular oil changes are a great time to have other maintenance tasks performed. While we’re changing your vehicle’s oil, we’ll also check your air filter, coolant, antifreeze, brake fluid, transmission fluid, and power steering fluid. Our ASE-certified mechanics will help you determine a good maintenance schedule for your vehicle. Unlike quick service shops, we value our relationships with our customers and take care to provide personalized solutions.
