How often should you change your oil?
According to most automotive manufacturers, an oil change and maintenance check should be performed every three months or three thousand miles, whichever comes first. At American & Import Auto Repair, a full-service oil change includes up to five quarts of oil, a new oil filter and lubrication of chassis components, if recommended by the manufacturer.
Our Oil Service Mechanics are trained to do quality oil changes. We will do a 29 point safety inspection, oil change, lube the chassis and get you back on the road.
Bring your car by, walk ins are welcome!
During your oil change, we perform a complete preventative maintenance and safety check that includes the following:
We inspect all the fluids including, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, brake fluid, and coolant (antifreeze). We check the fluid level and condition for your safety. Our oil technicians set the tire pressures to factory settings for maximum tire performance and longevity. Your air filter is an important part of getting clean air to the engine for proper fuel air mixture and fuel mileage. The cabin air filter can affect the air conditioning system and the quality of air that you and your passengers are breathing. A “rule of thumb” is to replace the cabin air whenever you replace the air filter. We visually inspect the serpentine and related belts. The windshield wipers and vehicle lights are checked for operation. We perform a battery check while your car, truck or SUV is in our quick lube bays.
More services are available including auto battery replacement and testing, tire rotation, transmission flush and a full range of auto repair services. We would also be happy to investigate any concerns that you may have about your vehicle’s operation. Remember, our first priority is to make sure that you are safe on the road.
What are your oil change options?
Depending on your vehicle and driving habits, your American & Import Auto Repair technician will help you select one of the following:
Full synthetic oil change
We recommend a full synthetic oil for newer, high-performance engines. This oil is man-made and engineered to last longer, reduce engine deposits and provide greater viscosity (thickness) at high temperatures. It offers better fuel economy and although it may cost a little more up front, it will actually help you save money over time. This is the oil of choice for serious car enthusiasts.
Synthetic blend oil change
Synthetic blend or semi-synthetic oil is our most popular option. Great for any type of vehicle, a synthetic blend oil helps protect against fluctuating temperatures, long engine running times, cold start-ups and the additional strain that comes from city driving. It lasts longer than conventional oil and is ideal for vehicles that regularly carry heavy loads.
High-mileage oil change
For vehicles with more than seventy-five thousand miles, a high-mileage oil may be your best choice. More miles mean more engine wear. This oil will help protect against engine leaks, friction, sludge and deposit build-up. Speak to one of our technicians to determine if high-mileage oil is the right choice for your engine needs.
Conventional oil change
This is the most basic option it is not recommended for modern engines.
We are fully equipped to service both gasoline and diesel vehicles. The viscosity of the oil is determined by the manufacture. There are many different oil weights/ viscosity and we go by what is recommended for your particular car, truck or SUV.
What happens when you don’t change your oil?
A vehicle that is not subjected to regular oil changes and maintenance checks will not perform at optimum levels. Without proper lubrication, the engine components will begin to wear and break down. Eventually, the entire engine may need to be replaced. Repairs can cost thousands of dollars, to the point where it may not be financially practical to keep the vehicle.
The most important functions of your engine’s oil are to lubricate components and carry away heat. An overheating engine can result in warping of parts or even loss of drivability. As your vehicle operates, the oil will also pick up dirt and small pieces of debris from the engine. If the oil is not changed, that dirt will build up and spread through the system, hindering the engine’s ability to run smoothly.
