See below for a brief look at the kind of experience that you can expect to have when you pull your car into our service center. After that, read through some important information about the importance of making sure your car gets its oil changed on a regular basis.

Skilled Automotive Care

Any time you're in need of an oil change, it's likely that you prefer the task to be performed quickly and proficiently. That's exactly what you can look forward to from our team of mechanics. They're certified and have plenty of skill and know-how at their disposal. 

Recommended Oil Change Intervals

  • Newer cars that run on synthetic oil should have it changed every 6,000 to 7,500 miles or so. 
  • If your car is older, it might use conventional oil. 
  • If that's the case, it should be changed between 3,000 and 5,000 miles. 
  • Be sure to check your owner's manual for the exact oil change interval recommendations for your car.

Key Symptoms that Your Car Is Due to Have Its Oil Changed

Exactly how often you should have your oil changed can be significantly influenced by things like driving behavior, climate, and road conditions. So, we've included the following hints that your oil might need to be changed sooner rather than later. Some of these include:

  • The check engine light has turned on
  • There's a burning smell coming from the engine
  • The engine sounds louder than usual
  • Instead of a honey or amber color, the oil is dark brown or black, or contains dirt or other debris

Make Sure to Have Your Car's Oil Changed Regularly
