Oil Change Frequently Asked Questions Is it necessary to use a stabilizer or additive with every oil change? No. Today’s engine oils are formulated to fully protect the engine. They don’t need extra help. When should I change my oil? You should change your oil and filter at or before the end of the oil-change intervals provided by your vehicle’s manufacturer. These intervals are based on mileage or time. By doing this, you can help keep your engine oil in good condition and provide the best protection for all your components. How should I dispose of my old oil after an oil change? Used oil can pollute the environment and should never be poured down the drain. Pennzoil helps DIYers protect the environment. You can drop off old oil and oil filters at your closest Jiffy Lube®, Walmart Tire & Lube Express, or most oil change centers to be recycled properly. What are the differences between Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus® Technology and Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™ Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus™ Technology? Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus® Technology is a very high performing full synthetic motor oil. However, Pennzoil wanted to test the boundaries of technology even further so we introduced Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™ Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus® Technology, a product providing the best cleanliness and protection in the Pennzoil® line-up of motor oils. What differences in performance characteristics are there between Pennzoil Platinum® and Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™ Full Synthetic motor oils with PurePlus® Technology? Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™ with PurePlus® Technology is formulated to contain additional cleansing technology and additional friction modifiers to maintain lower friction between moving parts. Is Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™ Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus® Technology considered to be a direct replacement for Pennzoil Ultra™ Full Synthetic motor oil? Yes, Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™ Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus® Technology will continue to phase out Pennzoil Ultra™ Full Synthetic motor oil over time. Is Pennzoil Ultra Euro 5W-40 being discontinued? Will there be a product called Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 5W-40 Euro with PurePlus® Technology? Yes, Pennzoil Ultra Euro 5W-40 is discontinued. The new product is named Pennzoil Platinum® Euro Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus® Technology 5W-40. How is the new “with PurePlus® Technology” formula different from the older Platinum that is currently on sale? Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oils with PurePlus® Technology are first-of-their kind synthetic motor oils blended with a pure, clear base oil made from natural gas. PurePlus® base oil has fewer of the impurities found in crude oil, the start for many other traditional and synthetic motor oils. The difference is in the base oil, which makes up 75%-90% of a typical motor oil formulation. Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic motor oils use 100% PurePlus® base oil. How will using Pennzoil Platinum® and Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™ Full Synthetic motor oils with PurePlus® Technology benefit newer engine designs with direct injection? Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oils with PurePlus® Technology provide engines Complete Protection without compromise. Complete Protection is defined as coverage on five key areas consumers deemed as most critical for motor oil performance: 1) engine cleanliness, 2) fuel economy, 3) conservation of horsepower, 4) wear protection, and 5) performance in extreme temperatures. These benefits make Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oils with PurePlus® Technology excellent choices for advanced engines, including direct injection engines. Does the additive package of the new motor oils deplete over time? All additive packages deplete with use. As the additives act to perform their function they will be consumed, for example in neutralizing acids. This depletion is a good reason why checking the oil level and topping up are great practices. In recent years, there has been a tremendous amount of work to develop additive technology that lasts longer throughout the oil drain, and Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oils with PurePlus® Technology have been designed to stay fresh for longer during the oil drain when compared to conventional motor oils. Do additive package contents settle in the carrier GTL (Gas-To-Liquid) oil over time, requiring the bottle to be shaken to reblend the contents? By extension, do you recommend giving a bottle a shake to reblend the contents? Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oils with PurePlus® Technology can have a shelf-life of up to four years if stored properly and it is not necessary to shake the motor oil bottle before dispensing. Our formulations are carefully balanced to ensure that additives stay suspended within the motor oil. You can contact the Pennzoil helpline if you wish to identify the date of when your purchase was bottled. Do these new oils already exceed the GF-6 standards? Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oils with PurePlus® Technology meet and exceed key industry standards and OEM specs, including API SN AND ILSAC GF-5 for passenger car motor oils and ACEA European oil sequences for service-fill oils. PurePlus® base oils have been designed with the future in mind, and they deliver a strong platform to meet the future oil requirements for GF-6 standards. What is the shelf life (in years) of the new Pennzoil® motor oils with PurePlus® Technology? Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oils with PurePlus® Technology can have a shelf-life of up to four years if stored properly.

Unless your car’s oil filter and/or oil drain plug is impossible to reach, you can save money by changing your oil and oil filter yourself (your car’s manual should tell you how much oil to get and how often to change your oil). You don’t need to be a mechanic to learn how to change your oil – it simply takes being able to identify certain parts of the car and acquiring the right equipment to do the job. From a top-level view, the oil change process involves a few procedures including: draining the existing oil out of your engine, replacing certain equipment (i.e. – oil filter), adding oil, ensuring there are no leaks, and quality testing.

Your car's manual may have most or all of this information. Your car may have a sticker on the inside that will tell you what type of oil you need. If you're not sure, or you can't find the information on your vehicle, Mobil Oil has a tool here you can use to look up your car's oil type. It's dressed up a bit with some obvious upsells, but the important detail is the oil type (in the format above). Once you have the oil type, you can go to any store that sells oil (car part stores, Walmart, etc.) and buy that type of oil. Make sure you get enough to completely fill your car (your manual should tell you how much is needed).

Proper Oil Disposal Pour the used oil back into oil bottles (a rather messy job) or into an old container. Don’t put the container out with the regular trash. Used motor oil is hazardous waste and must be disposed of properly. In many states, retail outlets that sell motor oil must accept used oil for recycling. If your store doesn’t take back used oil, check with a repair shop, because many shops will dispose of used oil. Otherwise, contact your local waste removal company for instructions. Drain all the oil from your old filter and dispose of the filter in the trash. Pour old oil in a jug for recycling.

Locate the engine oil fill hole and clean the area around the fill cap. Using a clean, dry funnel, add the new oil. Don’t spill any on the engine. If you do, wipe it up immediately. Note: Refer to your owner’s manual for the correct weight, API rating and amount of oil you’ll need to add. Replace the oil fill cap, check the oil level on the dipstick (it may be slightly over the mark until you run the engine) and start the engine. Be sure the garage door is open so exhaust fumes can escape. Check the oil pressure gauge for the proper pressure reading or be certain the oil light on the instrument cluster is off. Look under the car for leaks. Lower the car and recheck the dipstick level to make sure the oil is up to the full mark.

Tips Consider having a green, eco-friendly oil absorbent product on hand in case you spill some oil. They will absorb oil and will keep your garage and driveway clean. Kitty litter or clay-based products are not effective solutions for this. You can find a wide variety of eco-friendly oil absorbent products online. They are extremely absorbent, easy to use and renewable. Use disposable nitrile gloves. Used motor oil contains many toxic contaminants and can be easily absorbed through your skin. There are some oil drain valves on the market that replace your normal drain pan bolt. These can make oil changes much more convenient and can reduce the amount of mess you make. To avoid getting oil all over your arm when removing the drain plug bolt, apply inward force (as if you are trying to push the plug back into the hole) while removing it. When you know that bolt is fully unscrewed, quickly pull it away from the opening. If you’re lucky only a few drops will get on your hand. Tie a rag around your wrist when you remove the oil plug. For a very stubborn filter, using a hammer and a large screwdriver as a sort of “chisel” can push the filter counter-clockwise. Be advised: once you punch hole in this thin filter wall, the engine cannot be started until it’s replaced.
