At Matthews Tire, we believe in giving back to our community and supporting causes that make a difference. That’s why we’re excited to announce our annual fundraiser, “Oil Change for the Better,” benefiting Take ’em Outdoors.

During this two-week event from July 24th to 28th and July 31st to August 4th, $15 from every oil change at any of our six locations will be donated to support Take ’em Outdoors’ mission of empowering children and combat-wounded veterans through outdoor experiences. Schedule your oil change today and join us in making a positive impact!

Why “Oil Change for the Better” Matters

For every oil change you get during the Matthews Tire event period, $15 will be donated to support the programs at Take ‘em Outdoors. This means that while you take care of your vehicle’s maintenance, you are also making a positive impact on the lives of children and veterans, allowing them to discover the wonders of nature and develop a deeper connection with the world around them.

How Often Do You Need an Oil Change?

Most cars typically require an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles or every six months, whichever comes first. However, some newer cars and certain synthetic oils may allow for longer oil change intervals, up to 10,000 or even 15,000 miles. Consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommended oil change schedule.

Signs Your Car Needs an Oil Change

If you’re still not sure whether your car needs an oil change, or you have lost track of the last time your oil was changed, look out for these common signs that you need to schedule your next oil change:

  • If you notice a significant decrease in fuel efficiency, it may be a sign that an oil change is necessary.
  • Pay attention to the color and consistency of your engine oil. If it appears dark, gritty or sludgy, it’s likely time for an oil change.
  • Unusual engine noises, such as knocking or rumbling, can indicate the need for an oil change.
  • A persistent, strong odor of oil or exhaust fumes inside the vehicle could be a signal that an oil change is overdue.
  • The dashboard’s oil change indicator light, if equipped, is an obvious signal that it’s time to schedule your next oil change.

Remember, regular oil changes at Matthews Tire are vital for maintaining the health and performance of your vehicle.
