Oil Change Services Overview

 
 
Conventional Oil

Conventional oil is the oil that has been used for generations. It is mostly pure crude oil, with a few additives and some tweaking to make it work well in most cars.

 
Fully Synthetic Oil

Fully Synthetic oil is not all that new, but it has gained more popularity lately. Synthetic oil is still oil but is pretty much a man-made product. It lubricates your engine more effectively and does a better job in extremes of heat and cold. It costs more than traditional conventional oil but also lasts longer. It is not as bad for the environment but still has environmental issues.

 
Semi-Synthetic Oil

Semi-synthetic oil is a compromise between conventional and synthetic oil. It tries to reach a middle ground and is a solid option for many vehicles.

 
Diesel-Powered Vehicles

Diesel-powered vehicles are becoming more popular, and there is a specific oil for those types of engines. Diesel oil is heavier and thicker than conventional oil because of the different types of engines. There is also synthetic oil for diesel engines.

Understanding Your Vehicle's Need For Oil Changes

Having a good reliable vehicle is one of life's necessities for most people. But not all vehicle owners understand the basics when it comes to car or truck maintenance. There is a significant number of vehicle owners from Doylestown to Ambler, PA who only do repairs when necessary and rarely do any maintenance at all. This can prove to be a very serious error that can significantly shorten the lifespan of a car.

Understanding Essential Operating Fluids

Of all of the operating needs in a vehicle, one of the most essential is the care and upkeep of essential fluids. These vital operating fluids include the engine oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, and the antifreeze. Without having the proper maintenance and amounts of these fluids, car owners can significantly reduce the lifespan of their vehicles.

For vehicle owners who are unaware of all the benefits of having regular oil changes, one of the biggest is the primary maintenance it affords for other car fluids as well. Most oil changes include a top off and check of all essential vehicle fluid levels. That means that by having regular oil changes, vehicle owners not only ensure their vehicle operates at its maximum capacity but also ensures that all their vital fluids are capped off regularly.

How Often Do I Need an Oil Change?

On average, a car should have its oil changed every 5,000 miles. However, that can vary based on your driving style and the age of your vehicle so make sure to consult your owner's manual or our certified Ford technicians here in Horsham, PA to find out what oil change interval is right for your vehicle.

Why are regular oil changes important?

Oil changes help ensure that the engine is operating without excess dirt, carbon buildup, soot, and particles in the engine oil, which can adversely affect how the engine runs. The oil in the engine lubricates the engine parts while its running, reducing the friction in the components. When the oil in the engine starts to thicken and change color, it is usually an indication that an oil change is overdue.

What's the difference between conventional and synthetic oil?

Conventional motor oil comes directly from crude oil. By contrast, synthetic oils have added lubricants for added heat resistance and longer oil life.

Do I need an appointment for an oil change?

When looking to get your vehicle's oil changed at Chapman Ford of Horsham, making an appointment in advance is recommended. However, oil changes can also be completed in our Quick Lane service. Oil changes are not extensive maintenance tasks and can usually be completed within 30 minutes. Once the oil change is completed, a sticker is placed on the left side of your windshield, noting when the next oil change should be completed on your car.
