This is a pretty standard service that most people like to put off for as long as possible. Well they might not be wrong since most modern cars can now go farther between service intervals rather than getting an oil change every 3 Months / 3,000 Miles. Be sure to check your owner’s manual for your manufacturer’s suggestions when it comes to regularly scheduled maintenance such as oil changes. But it is important to keep in mind that your manufacturer’s suggestions are based on ideal driving conditions which does not include extreme weather, stop and go traffic or driving for long distances.
Here at D’Avico’s Auto Repair we give you much more than just an oil change. Our experienced and knowledgeable technicians will inspect your oil for signs that something else might be wrong with your vehicle. This attention to detail is often lacking at the chain service shops that only focus on oil repair.
Some people ask us why they need to change their oil. Your motor oil or engine oil as it is sometimes referred serves to protect and clean your engine. It prevents metal to metal contact which if otherwise allowed could lead to mechanical damage being done to your vehicle. Your oil filter, in turn, collects all the harmful contaminants that circulate through your engine.
But when your oil filter becomes saturated it is time to get an oil change because the oil and filter are no longer able to perform their respective jobs.
So if you answer yes to any of the following questions it is most likely time to get your oil changed and with a free 30 point vehicle inspection, you can rest assured that your vehicle will be both safe and reliable.
A regular oil change and oil filter replacement are vital to the health of your car. D’Avico’s Auto Repair can help you maintain your car and peace of mind with our oil and lube services that include:
