Oil Change Service


Full synthetic oils have been developed to help keep engines in good condition after years of service. Many European and other high-end cars can go 7,500 to 10,000 miles before an oil change is needed. People who drive their cars over these recommended miles are taking a chance in vastly reducing the life expectancy of their cars.

How to Know Your Car Needs an Oil Change

The simplest of answers is that your car’s computer system will notify you when your car is due for service. Each time the oil is changed, the car will reset its timer until it is time for the next notification. There are other times when it may be necessary for an oil change, which are:

  • Oil Leak: If your car is leaking oil, the oil change notification is made obsolete. An oil leak will leave your vehicle low on oil and can cause severe damage to the engine. By having your car serviced regularly, we can find problems before they turn into a major problem.
  • Engine Overheating: If there is any reason your engine has overheated, you will need to bring it in for oil replacement.
  • Coolant Leaking into Oil: Issues like a ruptured head gasket can cause your car’s coolant to enter into your oil. Once this happens, your car will be damaged if operated.
