St. Paul Oil Change Service
At Parkway Auto Care, we recommend changing your oil every 3,000 miles when using standard oil or 5,000 miles if you are using synthetic oil.
We have experienced firsthand the damage that occurs from not following the manufacturer’s recommendations of extended service intervals. If you are pushing it longer than our recommended intervals in the Minneapolis – St. Paul area, you will see excessive buildup of sludge in some very sensitive areas inside your engine. When this happens, damage to internal engine components will happen, leading to expensive engine repairs.
Driving your vehicle an average of 10-12,000 miles per year in the Twin Cities area usually means a lot of short trips to the store, work, school, and kids activities. Coupled with longer idle times and often wild temperature swings of 30 below zero in the winter to 90 degrees in the summer is a recipe for internal engine wear.
