Many vehicles require a change every 3 months of 3,000 miles, but the specific intervals for your vehicle will be listed in the owner’s manual. On newer cars, your oil monitoring system should alert you with a maintenance light. An oil change is the single most important maintenance service your vehicle requires, and failing to change your oil as recommended can lead to drivability issues and major engine damage.
Almost all engines consume a small amount of oil through regular use. Older or higher mileage vehicles may see more oil consumption than new vehicles. Changing your oil at regular maintenance intervals ensures that you always have an adequate amount of lubrication available for your engine parts. If you fail to maintain your oil levels, they will diminish over time. An under-lubricated engine will overheat, leading to serious engine damage and costly repair bills.

We care about your safety, and our certified professional technicians perform a visual check on every vehicle to identify any safety concerns before you go.
We use only the highest quality OEM automotive parts. Original Equipment parts provide an exact fit to your specific vehicle. The filter we put on will be identical to your OEM filter in both fit and quality. This includes factory recommended fluids. Using recommended fluids will keep your oil monitoring system running as intended, as it is specifically calibrated for the factory recommended fluids and filters.
Using OEM parts avoids the common issues with aftermarket oil filters. These can often come without required seals, causing leakage. The most common issue with aftermarket filters, however, is the fit. It will not be exact to the manufacturer’s specifications, because aftermarket parts are designed to fit a larger range of vehicles. An aftermarket filter may be over-sized, which creates a need for more oil to compensate, or too small to handle the oil pressure.
