The truth about oil changes

It's known throughout the automotive community that oil changes are to occur every 3 months, or every 3,000 miles. We follow this rule without really understanding why it is important, and some drivers even ignore this recommended schedule, often with detrimental outcomes. So what is the big deal with oil changes?

Oil changes provide lubrication to your engine, and this reduces wear, friction, and noise. What it also does is provide a seal between the pistons, rings, and cylinder walls, and it keeps the bad stuff from penetrating your engine. When oil is not cycled out and replaced regularly, the oil builds up and toxins may be present to damage your engine, along with possible fragments.

We have a service video which explains more about oil changes, along with other important service appointments, and we urge you to make your appointment today.
