Oil Changes

Routine Oil Changes

Routine Oil changes on any vehicle are something everybody must do to keep their vehicle on the road for as long as possible. They serve a purpose greater than keeping your vehicle’s warranty valid. Oil acts as a lubricant that reduces wear on all the moving parts of your engine. It will also help play a role in preventing your trucks engine from overheating. Keeping fresh oil in your gas or diesel truck will play a big role in keeping your personal & or your company truck on the road for as long as possible.

Getting your oil changed regularly will give our technicians the ability to properly maintain your vehicle.

Our technicians will do a multi-point inspection while performing an oil change on any vehicle. This will give us the ability to let you know if there is anything you should change now or keep an eye on for a later date. These multi point inspections can end up saving you a lot of money down the road if we find something wrong with your vehicle, before it has the chance to effect other componants.

Ex: If we see a rusty nut or bolt we can replace it before it fuses to its counterpart. In New England that is a common problem for aged vehicles to face. Imagine paying $500 for a new part because a bolt has completely fused to it’s nut and brakes a crucial part to your vehicle when a certified technician is trying to remove it.

Common Motor Oil Types:

Conventional Oil

Basic motor oil which protects against deposit build up, viscosity break down and wear protection over time.

High Mileage Oil

Best used in engines with 75,000 miles or more. Contains a special blend of additives to help with the general wear and tear that these older engines can be prone too.

Synthetic Oil

Synthetic oil is the industries new standard. It is made to perform better at low and high temperatures so it is capable of performing better through out the different seasons. Especially in New England where it can snow one day and be 70* the next. It also has a higher resistance to oxidation, this will give your oil a longer life before it turns into “sludge” and starts clogging your engine.
