Time for an Oil Change | New Orleans Auto Care

When it's time for a New Orleans oil change, take your car to the New Orleans auto care technicians at Twin Tire.

Today is a big day for some New Orleans runners. It's the day of the Heart, Mind & Sole run and walk in Crescent Park. And many local runners have been training for the event. But even if you're not a runner, such races can help you in life. That's because of the preparation and care that goes into being race ready. Runners not only have to train, they have to make sure their bodies are ready for the run.

The same can be said of your car. If you want your car to always be ready - whether it's to get to work or go on a road trip - you have to care for it. One of the most important ways you can care for your car is to get a regular oil change. 

How regular is regular? Well, a good rule of thumb is to get your oil changed on the schedule suggested by your owner's manual. But sometimes, that's not good enough. A better thing to do is to make sure your oil level is checked frequently - at least once a month, according to Consumer Reports.

What do you look for? Well, the level - whether your car is low on oil. Evidence of a leak - in which case you need to have it fixed asap.

You also need to check the color.

"It should appear brown or black. But if it has a light, milky appearance, this could mean coolant is leaking into the engine," Consumer Reports says. "Look closely for any metal particles, too, because this could mean there is internal engine damage. If you see either of these conditions, get the car to a mechanic for further diagnosis."

Of course, you COULD make it easy on yourself by having the New Orleans auto care experts at Twin Tire Auto Care check your oil.
