Motor oil is the lifeblood of your car’s engine.
While your engine is running the oil is constantly circulated through it by the oil pump. During driving, your engine’s oil is subject to high temperatures, gasoline vapors and combustion gases, causing it to become contaminated. Over time, your motor oil’s lubricating qualities decrease resulting in increased engine wear.
If oil is not changed frequently enough, sludge builds up and eventually restricts oil flow to the engine’s vital moving parts: this leads to poor engine performance, resulting in higher fuel costs and possible emission test failures. At the extreme, your engine may suffer damage and need replacement, costing thousands of dollars. Changing the engine oil and oil filter regularly is the lowest cost service your vehicle requires and yet it provides the most protection. While changing the oil and filter, we inspect fluid levels, lubricate under car components as needed, adjust tire pressures and inspect lights.
Recommended frequency: Every 5000km or 6 months (whichever comes first); some vehicles using synthetic oil have longer service intervals
