Recommended Limits

How often should a vehicle's oil be changed? To find the answer, begin by following the manufacturer's recommendations, as your vehicle may have specific requirements. If in doubt, however, it is advisable to change your oil more frequently than less frequently, especially if your vehicle is used for carrying heavy loads long distances. We recommend frequent changes because oil plays an important role in your car's engine. Oil lubricates, cleans and cools your motor, helping to prolong its life.

At Hansma, we suggest that you change your vehicle's oil every 5,000 kilometres.

What Happens If I Go Over The Limit?

Old oil carries an accumulation of grit and dirt that may damage your engine's pistons by causing wear and tear. This friction will eventually cause your vehicle to lose power. Modern cars can frequently last well over 200,000 to 300,000 km in a lifetime - but only if they are well maintained. Canada's climate is particularly harsh on vehicles due to the large amount of contamination that enters a vehicle's engine compartment in the form of condensation and water.
