Excess Vehicle Exhaust

If you see what looks like smoke trailing behind your vehicle, it may indicate the fact that the motor oil has become too old to function properly. It could also point to engine problems, so if you aren’t sure about the root of the smoke, come to our shop today.

Falling Oil Level

If your oil levels seem to fall quickly and constantly, it may mean that your oil system has a problem. If you find yourself topping off your oil more frequently than not, your vehicle may need additional repairs.

Irregular Oil Texture

Oil consistency may tell you when it’s time for the oil change. If your oil picked up grime, it becomes gritty instead of smooth and will most likely need to be replaced.

While these are only some reasons to schedule oil change maintenance, it’s still important to stick to a schedule to keep your vehicle running as smoothly as possible. Stop by New Cats Auto Parts today and we will help you figure out the root of your vehicle’s problem.
