It is generally suggested to get their oil changed at least every 5,000 miles. Many people fail to change their own oil but insteadopt to have the job done. That’s why what happens during an oil change remains a mystery for many. In this article, we examine what takes place at the time of an oil change.
The initial step in the procedure is to get rid of the oil filter and drain the old oil out. You’ll find this under your vehicle. You should wait until your oil is totally drained out before moving on. When your oil is removed, it is time to install the filter and then plug it back up. In the next step, you’ll have to move back up the ladder. This requires you to unhook the hood of your car, then open it and pour the oil in using funnel. After the oil is installed in your car is to verify the level.
