Frequently asked questions about engine oil change & replacements in Leicestershire

Read our answers to questions about engine oil change costs, symptoms and more.

What does an engine oil change in Leicestershire involve?

  • The mechanic will raise the vehicle and ensure that the surrounding area is protected against any spillage
  • The mechanic will drain the oil and change the oil filter

What are the symptoms of bad engine oil?

Fundamentally, unless it has gone too far, the average motorist is unlikely to know there is something wrong physically with it.

There may be an oil pressure warning on the dashboard that could indicate the oil isn’t circulating as well as it should due to a blocking filter or even a failing oil pump or there may be an oil level warning, which would indicate there isn’t enough oil in the engine. However both of these warnings are not really an indicator of the actual oil quality but can alert you to potential issues.
Therefore typical symptoms are;

  • Engine oil level warning
  • Engine oil pressure warning
  • Service indicator lights
  • Oil quality warning light
