Why Is an Oil Change Important?
Your car is a big investment and making sure you are doing everything possible to extend its life only makes good sense. Routine oil changes are one of the most valuable things you can do to protect your investment.
An oil change is a standard maintenance procedure and is critical to your engine's health. Oil not only provides lubrication for a variety of moving parts, but it also stops corrosion on internal components, helps to keep your engine clean, and acts as a barrier between and around metal surfaces to prevent excessive wear.
We offer 3 different grades of oil for your next oil change:
- Synthetic blend
- Fully synthetic
Full Throttle Auto Service offers the best oil change near me in the Midland area!
Oil Change Services Near the Midland Area
While it's certainly possible for you to change the oil yourself, our oil change service is a lot more convenient!
The time between oil changes varies greatly and takes into account your typical driving habits and style, along with the age of your vehicle. If your vehicle has an oil monitoring system, you don't have to worry about when an oil change service is needed...it will alert you!
If you do not have an onboard alert system, you may want to find or look up your car's manual for specific requirements on oil change service intervals. Our mechanics can also suggest the best timeframe to follow so that your engine stays healthy. Changing your engine oil on a regular basis provides:
- Improved engine performance
- Better gas mileage
- Longer engine life
- Less harmful emissions
- A cleaner engine

Why is My Car Leaking Oil?
An oil leak is never a good thing. A small oil leak has a way of turning into a major oil leak which can quickly lead to engine damage. As part of our oil change service, we also perform a visual inspection to try and determine where and why your vehicle is leaking oil.
If Midland vehicle owners take a proactive approach to a small oil leak, you have a better chance of avoiding high-cost repairs in the future. While checking the oil level every day is one way to see if your car is losing oil, there are some simple, more apparent things you can watch for.
- Driveway oil spots
- Smoke from the engine (under the hood)
- Burnt oil smell
- Tailpipe puffing bluish smoke
If you work around or live in the Midland area and have discovered an oil leak, bring your vehicle to Full Throttle Auto Service before it gets worse! 206-331-6475.
