Your engine needs motor oil to keep everything in proper working order, but old oil can break down, turn dirty, and harm your vehicle. During an oil change, our staff will change the oil filter, drain the dirty oil from your engine, and replace it with clean, new oil to keep your engine running smoothly. During a lube and oil change, our service staff will lubricate the chassis and the internal framework that holds your car together. By the time our staff finishes with your lube and oil change, your engine should be running smoothly, complete with a new oil filter, fresh oil, and a lubricated chassis. Changing your oil early and often will keep your engine running under optimal conditions.
With regular car oil changes, your vital engine parts stay well-coated and protected against excess heat and friction.

Your dashboard oil reminder: In newer vehicles, this light or text message takes your actual driving conditions into account.
Dark oil on your dipstick: Fresh engine oil is transparent and light brown or amber. Dirty oil is dark brown or black -- and too opaque to see through.
Overheating: Poor lubrication also makes your engine work harder, which can generate excess heat.
Grinding or tapping noises -- these may be the dreaded “metal on metal” sounds, warning you that your oil level is too low to protect your engine.
Motor oil and lube changes are very important for keeping your engine functioning properly. Motor oil keeps your engine lubricated so there isn’t any excess friction or wear on moving parts. Oil cools down your engine, fights rust and corrosion, reduces engine noise, and works with the oil filter to remove contaminants from the engine. Oil is very important to your engine for helping it operate at optimum performance levels. When you drive your car, your engine becomes very hot, and heat makes oil break down. Broken down oil doesn’t move through your engine as well, which means the oil cannot do its job. Oil also cleans your engine as it flows around it. Dirty oil moves more slowly than clean oil and is not able to lubricate your engine correctly. In addition, the gritty particles in dirty oil can hinder its friction reduction abilities and increase wear on moving parts.
Vehicles made in the past decade 6,000 to 8,000 Miles
European Vehicles, manufacture recommends 10,000 Miles
For vehicles made in the past decade or so, automakers usually recommend changing the oil every 6,000 to 8,000 miles, with even higher intervals for certain models. Most owner’s manuals now specify synthetic blend or full synthetic oil in concert with these longer oil change intervals. Manufacturers recommend changing the oil every 3,000 miles for many older vehicles and certain engine types. The 3,000-mile oil change might be a sensible tradition to keep alive if you choose conventional oil.
However, check your manual – and heed your vehicle’s oil change reminder if it triggers between oil changes, regardless of the old adage of every 3,000-miles. (On some vehicles, it takes your actual driving patterns into account.) And if you aren’t reaching the mileage guideline each year, follow your manual’s timed oil change interval instead.
Check your vehicle’s manufacturer recommendations to see if “severe” driving conditions mean more frequent oil changes. And the definition of severe might surprise you! If your driving consists mostly of short trips in stop-and-go traffic or driving in “extreme temperatures” (which most of us call ordinary hot summers and cold winters), your vehicle manufacturer may recommend more frequent oil changes.
Over time, as oil becomes saturated with contaminants, excess particles are left behind in the engine, where they can form deposits and cause significant wear to the engine. Oversaturated oil loses its lubrication, which will eventually lead to an overworking engine, excess heat, and engine failure. Excessive heat can also lead to thermal breakdown in your engine oil, causing a change in the oil’s viscosity, and resulting in decreased oil flow. Similarly, dirty oil flows more slowly, causing the engine to work harder, leading to increased engine wear. Our service staff will inspect the oil filter during each oil change, and replace the oil filter in order to keep your oil clean from contaminants. Routine lube and oil changes will keep your engine running stronger and running longer.

An oil change and filter replacement is one of many preventative maintenance services that help promote maximum vehicle performance while extending the life of your vehicle. Oil is responsible for lubricating the working components inside your vehicle’s engine while reducing the amount of friction between them. Because the engine generates a substantial amount of heat, oil acts as a cooling agent as it circulates through the engine. Oil also absorbs other harmful particles created during the combustion process and directs them to the oil filter, which filters out the debris and contaminants for clean, free-flowing oil. Together, the oil and oil filter keep your vehicle’s engine operating at optimal levels of performance. During an oil change, we will replace your engine’s old oil with new oil and replace the oil filter. We will also lubricate the chassis components of the vehicle according to the standards of the manufacturer. At the end of every lube, oil and filter change, our staff will have ensured that your engine oil is clean and the working parts of your engine are properly lubricated.
