Oil Change Service

It is the most basic facet of vehicle maintenance.  Having your oil changed is a quick, simple process that breathes new life into your vehicle’s engine.  It is also one of the easiest ways to avoid a more costly engine repair.    

Heat is Your Engine’s Enemy

There is a lot going on inside your engine.  Fuel is injected and then ignited forcing your vehicle’s pistons to move and powering the movement of your vehicle.  That process creates a lot of friction.  This amount of friction creates a lot of heat and heat is very bad for engines. It is the oil in your engine that lubricates the moving parts which lowers the friction and reduces the heat.  New oil can do this efficiently.  As your oil ages and is cycled through your engine its viscosity changes and it becomes less useful in preventing friction.  

The Oil Change Process

When your vehicle is ushered into the bay the drain plug is removed and the oil is drained.  Then the drain plug is reinstalled.  Now the new oil filter is installed and the recommended amount of oil is added to the reservoir.  The oil level is checked and the process is complete.
