Why Is an Oil Change Important?
Generally speaking, an oil change is one of the easiest things a vehicle owner can do to keep their car running in top shape. Of course, there are lots of other maintenance tasks that need to be done regularly, but an oil change is something that should be done with regularity.
You might not realize how many moving parts are inside the engine and rely on the lubricating effects of clean oil. Engine oil reduces the friction between these moving parts and keeps them from needing to be replaced too soon. Putting off an oil change can end up costing you more in the long run due to parts that wear prematurely.
At our shop, we offer three types of oil grades for most oil changes:
- Synthetic blend
- Fully synthetic

Oil Change Services Near the Frederickson Area
It's important to keep your oil in good shape and that's what an oil change is for. We can also check your vehicle to make sure that there aren't signs of something else that might need to be maintained. Keep an eye out for your vehicle warranty and any maintenance clauses that violating would void the warranty.
Keep in mind that if you are hard on your vehicle, you might want to get an oil change at higher frequencies than your manufacturer would otherwise suggest. These actions are particularly hard on automobiles:
- Transporting heavy loads
- Towing trailers
- Mostly short trips (under 5 miles)
- Excessive stop-and-go conditions (think freeway)
