An oil change service is something most drivers understand is necessary to ensure the longevity of the engine in their vehicle, but what many people may not be aware of is the importance of regular oil changes on newer cars. The engines on today’s new cars and trucks have very precise machining. This means they are much more sensitive to subtle changes in their operating environment. They may require a specific type of oil be used and that oil changes be done at more precise mileage or time intervals.
The job of engine oil is to circulate around and lubricate the internal working components of an engine. As an engine does its work, minute fragments normally break off or erode from its metal components and are picked up by the circulating oil. Some particles are trapped by the oil filter, but over time and along with the extremes of temperature under which an engine operates, the oil becomes contaminated and degraded reducing its ability to protect the engine and its components. This is the reason the oil filter is also changed at the same time as an oil change service.
In conjunction with an oil change service, we inspect and replace air filters and wiper blades if necessary. Steering and drivetrain components are also inspected and lubricated as needed. In addition to these services, we perform a complete vehicle inspection.
