Oil Change, Lube Change and Oil Filter Change

Getting your oil changed and filter replaced is one of many preventative maintenance services you want to be sure to stay on top of. Having regular oil changes helps to maximize your vehicle’s performance and extend the life of your vehicle.

The oil that you put inside your vehicle is responsible for lubricating all of the moving parts inside your vehicle’s engine. Your vehicle’s engine puts off a lot of heat, so the oil acts as a cooling agent that circulates through the engine to cool it down.

Over time, your vehicle’s oil will become contaminated with particles that get left behind from the engine, making it lose it’s lubrication. This is why you want to be sure to keep up with routine oil, lube and filter changes.
