It also has a very important role is extending the life of your hybrid. Take care of your hybrid, and you will be rewarded with more extended miles on your older vehicles.
Let’s break it down into a few more details on exactly what changing your engines oil actually does;
When?– Every vehicle is different, but one thing is clear nowadays, MOST hybrids do not require a change every 3,000 miles like all auto repair shops used to recommend. So, our advice would be to check your vehicles owner’s manual or ask any of Wilhelm’s customer service advisors for recommendations. Some Hybrids use synthetic which extends that period that period to 5,000-7,000 miles or every six months. The oil change for hybrid cars is necessary to keep them up and running for longer just as much as it is vital for any regular vehicle.
Why?– It keeps the engine clean and the Oil lubricates the moving parts of the engine.
