Oil Change Services

The oil in your vehicle's engine is very important for two main reasons. You need the lubrication and cooling features it provides for the engine's internal parts. Metallic internal parts move in your engine and the oil travels from the oil pan to form a cushion of oil between the parts, so they don't cause friction. This function provides both lubrication and cooling.

How Often Should I Change My Oil?

You should change your oil at the maintenance intervals in your vehicle's owner's manual. This schedule is put out by your vehicle's manufacturer for the best results in proper engine operation. It will be expressed as every 5,000 miles or 4 months, meaning you need an oil change service at the mileage or by the time, whichever comes first.

This makes sense because people who drive their vehicles a lot of miles per day, will make the engine work harder and break down the oil's lubrication and cooling properties more quickly than a person with a short commute to work. If you don't follow the recommended schedule, you may have internal engine parts that have friction between them and become hot, leading to premature parts failure or even needing an entirely new engine.

Types of Engine Oil We Offer

There are four main types of engine oil: conventional oil, full synthetic oil, semi-synthetic oil and diesel oil for diesel engines.

Conventional Oil

Conventional Oil

Conventional oil is used the most in vehicles that have low to average mileage along with a simple engine design.

Semi-Synthetic & Full Synthetic Oil

Semi-Synthetic & Full Synthetic Oil

Semi-synthetic oil is a blend of conventional and full synthetic oils. It has many of the properties as full synthetic but at a much lower price point. Full synthetic oil, on the other hand, is used in vehicles that have performance engines as it has better resistance to thermal breakdown and oxidation and fights against sludge in your engine. This type of oil is more expensive than the others, but it lasts longer between scheduled oil changes.

Diesel Oil

Diesel Oil

Diesel oil is thicker than oil for a gasoline engine. This is because there are larger spaces inside the engine between moving parts, so they need heavier and thicker oil to coat them and properly protect the parts with a diesel vehicle oil change.
