Why Are Oil Changes Essential?

Your oil removes heat from the engine and lubricates its moving parts. Changing your vehicle’s oil routinely is one of the most important things you can do to promote long-term vehicle performance. As you drive, the oil pump circulates oil into your oil filter and throughout your engine. The oil filter cleans dirt and deposits out of the oil, keeping your engine clean and protected. 


As time passes, the oil filter will begin to get clogged with debris and will no longer be able to keep the oil clean for the engine. Most manufacturers recommend changing the oil between 5,000 and 7,000 miles to ensure long life and maximum performance. 


At Superior Tire Inc., we understand the importance of an oil change. Superior Tire Inc. proudly serves the oil change needs of its Arizona customers in Bullhead City, Fort Mohave, Golden Valley, and Kingman.

Know When You Need an Oil Change

As you’ve just had a chance to read about, it’s common for auto manufacturers to recommend that drivers get oil changes every 5,000 to 7,000 miles. That can make it easier to figure out when it’s time for another oil change, but this is really just general advice. To figure out the exact oil change schedule you should follow, you’ll need to consider your own situation.


Motor oil can wear out faster than it normally would due to all kinds of different factors. More specifically, you might want to consider getting oil changes more often if you tend to:



Most drivers in Arizona and elsewhere exhibit at least some of these driving habits. Taking that into account, we believe most motorists should get oil changes every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. While this means you’ll have to pay for oil changes more often, the extra attention your vehicle will get from our technicians is more than worth it.

Our Thorough Oil Change Service

Generally speaking, Arizona drivers have some understanding of why they need oil changes. What most people don’t know is that an oil change shouldn’t just consist of a single service. Though actually changing the oil in your vehicle is a vital part of this task, reliable shops like Superior Tire Inc. will take care of several other maintenance services at the same time.


At Superior Tire Inc., you’ll get up to five quarts of new motor oil as part of your oil change. On top of that, our ASE Certified technicians will:


Don’t Just Top Off Your Oil

Topping off your oil can help maintain your vehicle’s well-being between oil changes. However, that raises the question: Why not just keep topping off your car’s oil and skip oil changes entirely? That might appear to make sense at first glance, but it definitely isn’t something we’d recommend.


The biggest reason why you shouldn’t rely solely on topping off your oil is linked to the actual purpose of oil changes. After all, this service doesn’t just keep your oil level high, but it also cleans the oil in your engine, keeping it as effective as possible. Topping off your oil can help you out temporarily, but it won’t improve your overall oil cleanliness. Your dirty oil will still put stress on your vehicle’s engine, making this strategy almost as bad in the long term as not replacing your oil at all.


On top of all that, this approach excludes the secondary services we provide with our oil changes. Instead of trying to penny-pinch by avoiding essential auto maintenance, take your car to Superior Tire Inc. to get a full-fledged oil change at a highly affordable price.

What Type of Oil is Right for You?

Staying up to date on your Arizona vehicle’s oil changes is an essential task, but following the proper oil change schedule is only half the battle on its own. In addition, you’ll want to ensure you’re getting the most suitable type of oil for your car’s needs. 


Some of the factors that might influence your oil decision include:



Once you’ve taken inventory of these factors, it’s time to choose a type of oil for your vehicle. The most common oil varieties on the market today include:

Standard Oil

Just like you’d expect, standard oil is the default oil variety. This product is made from refined crude oil, which contains additives to make it more effective at protecting your engine. While standard oil costs less than other motor oil types upfront, you’ll need to change it more often.

Synthetic Oil

Today, synthetic oil is nearly as popular as the standard offering. This form of oil consists of multiple chemical compounds and is made in laboratories. Since it’s manufactured specifically for use in vehicles, it’s more effective—and more expensive—than standard oil. However, you won’t need to replace it as regularly as you would have to replace standard oil.

High-Mileage Oil

Finally, people driving vehicles with more than 75,000 miles on the odometer should look at high-mileage oil. That’s typically a blend of standard and synthetic oils formulated with aging cars in mind.

Oil Change Page FAQ

What are the signs that you need an oil change?

Your car is designed to operate at its best when your engine oil is fresh and works efficiently. When the oil becomes saturated or breaks down, it can show some of the signs below:

What happens if you don't change your oil?

The oil in your engine is designed to be a lubricating barrier for the moving parts. As it is used and burned from the engine heat, the oil will collect debris and lose its efficiency over time. If you do not have an oil change performed regularly, all the dirt and debris will build up in the engine instead. At first, this may cause a loss of fuel economy, strange noises, or other mild symptoms. If it continues, however, it could lead to some severe issues.

If your engine does not have efficient lubrication with clean oil, it will need to work harder to compensate for the lack of efficiency. Doing this makes every moving component be used beyond its design and can cause significant damage if left unaddressed.

How much should it cost to get an oil change near me?

When searching for an oil change near you, it is always important to make sure you are getting a reasonable price and quality service. At Superior Tire, we completely understand keeping it within your budget. We promise that our Arizona ASE-certified mechanics will perform your oil change with service mastery at a price that makes your budget happy. The exact cost of an oil change will depend, however, on the type of oil you select and any other services you may need.

You'll find incredible service at every Superior Tire location at an affordable price. We also offer oil change coupons and specials to get a great deal, and you can sign up for our free rewards program, which gives you access to even more savings and special offers.

Will my car run better after an oil change?

Ideally, you have an oil change as part of your regular maintenance, and you do not see any issues. If you have kept up with your oil changes, there should not be too noticeable a difference in your vehicle’s performance after an oil change. However, if you notice signs that your oil has gone past its prime, an oil change should make a noticeable difference in how your vehicle runs.

After a fresh oil change, your fuel economy should increase, your engine should become less noisy, and you should notice a smoother ride. Essentially, many of the signs that you were seeing before the oil change should be absent after you have an oil change service performed.

Do older cars need more frequent oil changes?

Older vehicles frequently need an oil change more often than newer vehicles. Modern cars have been upgraded to run more efficiently and use less oil to function correctly. Modern cars are also more likely to use synthetic oils rather than natural oil as a lubricant. Full-synthetic oils have been engineered to last longer and require less-frequent replacement than traditional oils.

Older engines, however, may require that the oil is changed more often as it breaks down more rapidly. While it is not uncommon for a modern vehicle to only require an oil change every 5,000, 7,000, or even 10,000 miles, older models will typically need an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. If you have an older car or truck, it may be necessary to search for an oil change near you and have an auto mechanic to keep it running at its best.

What is considered high mileage for an oil change?

There is some debate on what is considered a high-mileage vehicle. A good rule of thumb for the average driver is to use high-mileage oil at around 100,000 miles. At this level of use, your vehicle will need extra attention at each oil change. While this doesn't mean you need to stop driving it or that your car is in poor condition, it does mean that there is a greater potential for mechanical failures to occur.

Once your vehicle hits 100,000 miles, taking proper care of your car is all the more crucial. Ensure your vehicle gets the attention it needs by using Superior Tire for all your oil change and maintenance needs. Schedule an appointment at the location nearest you.

Does it matter if I use synthetic vs. traditional oil for my oil change?

In most vehicles, you should be able to use synthetic oil, traditional oil, or an oil blend for your oil change. Certain cars and trucks will require a specific type of oil, however. Superior Tire recommends checking your owner’s manual to see if your vehicle needs a particular oil.

Each oil type will have different properties that may sway your decision. While traditional oil will be cheaper, it will not be as long-lasting as synthetic oil. On the other hand, synthetic oil will be at a higher price, but you will not need an oil change as often as if you use traditional oil. Each has pros and cons for you to consider when having an oil change service.

Can I check my oil level myself?

Certainly! To manually check your oil level, remove the engine block dipstick and clean it with a microfiber cloth. Once it is clean, re-insert it into its position and remove it. You should see the oil line between the two indicators on the dipstick that says it’s at the proper level. Superior Tire can help you get the oil change service you need if your oil is too low or appears dirty. Find the Arizona Superior Tire auto shop location nearest you.
