Although some manufacturers and mechanics suggest you have your oil changed at least every 6,000 miles, we suggest maintaining changing oil every 3,000 miles to prevent mechanical wear, internal engine rust, corrosion and sludge build up. We will match your car with the right type of oil, replace the oil filter, change the oil, check and fill your fluids, check tire pressure, exterior lights, inspect belts, wipers and air filter.
Regular oil changes helps
- to clean, cool and lubricate engine components
- reduce engine wear
- maximize fuel economy and engine performance
- prolong engine life and other vital components
- reduce emissions pollution
We Will Check
- Exterior Lights
- Antifreeze/Coolant Levels
- Brake Fluid Level
- Wiper Blades
- Air Filter
- Tire Pressure
- Transmission Fluid
- Differential Fluid
- Power Steering Fluid
- Windshield Wiper Fluid
- Serpetine Belt
Every vehicle make and model has different recommendations on when you should change your air filter. Chevrolet, for example, suggests intervals every 45,000 miles, but Ford recommends changing the filter every 30,000 miles.
Checking your air filter for black areas or dirt every 6,000 miles will help you keep an eye on its condition. It is important that you do change your filter at least every three years or 30,000 miles.
Wiper blades are one of the most neglected parts of the vehicle, but in rain and snow, they prove to be one of the most important parts. It is suggested that wiper blades are replaced every six months.
Many manufacturers recommend replacing the serpentine belt every 60,000 miles. The serpentine belt transfers power between the engine and devices, such as the alternator, power steering pump, water pump, air conditioning compressor and air pump. Failure in the belt can lead to serious engine issues.
Antifreeze/Coolant Reservoir Levels
Driving causes friction within your vehicle. Friction causes heat. While engines run more efficiently when warmed up, the radiator helps to regulate the engine temperature so that the engine does not overheat.
Without proper coolant, the radiator is not able to keep the engine at a safe temperature. So, manufacturers recommend replacing the coolant antifreeze a regular intervals.
We will make sure your coolant is not colorless, sludgy or rusty, as this could be an indication of other engine problems.
While we are checking your coolant levels and quality, we will also look at the hoses around your vehicle’s radiator to make sure they are not cracked, bulgy or squishy, which would indicate they need to be replaced.
