What causes the Oil Warning Light?
  • Oil pressure is too low
  • Pull over and check the oil level or, immediately drive to a service technician
Why is my car leaving oil spots on my driveway?
Usually leaks are a sign of degraded engine gaskets, oil seals, or bad connections.

What if I have low miles between service intervals?
Low miles doesn't mean you don't have to change your oil; if your car isn't driven much oil still breaks down and doesn't lubricate engine parts.

What are extreme operating conditions?
  • A lot stop-and-go traffic, or rush-hour traffic
  • A lot of short trips every day
  • Limited highway driving: not getting up to high speed and getting engine hot enough to evaporate water in crankcase, and builds up engine sludge
  • Driving in very hot weather
  • A lot of blowing dust or dirt: driving on dirt roads
  • Towing
  • Hauling a lot of heavy loads

Frequent oil and filter changes are insurance against premature wear on engine components

  • Check your Owner's Manual for your car's oil service interval
  • Every time your oil is changed and oil filter replaced adds years to the life of your car
  • Use premium quality oils and filters (Refer to Owner's Manual)
