Oil Changes

Your #1 Choice for Oil Changes

An oil change involves draining out old motor oil and replacing it with fresh motor oil.  The oil filter is usually replaced at the same time.  Oil serves many crucial functions, and clean oil performs these functions better than dirty oil – while helping to protect your vehicle from major repairs down the road.

Regularly changing your car’s engine oil and filter is one of the most important things you can do to keep your car running smoothly.  This is because, over time, oil breaks down and the filter becomes clogged with contaminants.  Depending upon your driving habits and type of vehicle, it can take as little as three months or 3,000 miles.  Factors also determining if you need to change your oil more frequently include:

  • Heavy acceleration
  • High-speed driving
  • Extremely hot or cold climate
  • Dirt roads
  • Old engine that burns oil
  • Vehicle frequently carries heavy loads

Consult your owner’s manual for recommended intervals for having an oil change service for your vehicle.  If you frequently run low on oil, be sure to report it to your service technician.

There are dozens of choices for where to go for an oil change.  Many people decide where to go strictly on price.  However, a low price point might get you in the service bay, but it doesn’t mean you will get a thorough and complete oil, lube, and filter service, performed by an experienced service technicians.
