How Much Oil Does My Vehicle Need?

Motor oil is essential to an engine. It keeps vital engine parts lubricated, reducing heat buildup in the engine by diminishing the friction between parts, as well as helping clean deposits and other contaminants off of these. That is why your car oil levels are an important item to keep in mind daily.

Since oil tends to lose viscosity over time its efficiency as a lubricant is also reduced, which is why it’s important to follow a schedule for proper oil change maintenance.

Different engines need different amounts of oil. However, most engines need anywhere from 4 to 8 quarts of oil, depending on the size. The smaller the engine, the less oil it will require. Confirm how much oil your vehicle needs by referring to the owner’s manual. USA Automotive can also help you with this needed information if needed. The proper viscosity of the engine oil is also very important, and the newer the vehicle the more important it becomes. The more you know about oil maintenance for your vehicle, the more likely you are to prevent related problems that could come up in the future.
