Oil Changes

As our mission is to provide Hollywood, Florida and the surrounding areas with a place that takes care of all their vehicles needs, we also provide oil changes. Circle Car Care is here to serve you, not to sell you. If our technicians recommend something it’s because we feel your car or truck needs it, not because we are trying to make a monthly quota.

An oil change is the process of draining old, used engine oil from a vehicle into a pan, and then replacing it with fresh, clean oil and a fresh oil filter.

Like most lubricating and cooling fluids that help vehicles run, engine oil eventually needs to be changed. Particles of metal and debris from engine parts gradually darken and thicken the oil, decreasing its effectiveness. Small, replaceable parts called oil filters are designed to remove this debris, but they have a limited lifespan. When you’re changing your oil, it’s best to change the filter, too.

Oil and vehicle manufactures vary in their advice on oil- and filter-change frequency, but changing both every six months or every 5,000 to 7,000 miles of driving (whichever comes first) is a good rule of thumb. This frequency strikes a good balance between maximizing oil life and minimizing engine wear from driving with dirty oil.
