Keep Your Car Running Smoothly for Cheap, Change Your Oil

We know that oil changes can seem like a hassle, but they will save you a lot of trouble in the long run. Motor oil is a critical part of the engine’s ability to continue and work for you, essentially, it does all of the dirty work under the hood. Changing your vehicle’s oil routinely is one of the simplest and cheapest ways to keep your engine running smooth.

Oil Changes Are You and Your Cars’ Friend

Oil cleans your engine and reduces friction. Therefore, oil makes sure your engine doesn’t have any large build up of dust or dirt, which would prevent your car from running properly. It also makes sure that all of the engine’s parts aren’t rubbing together and causing any preventable damage. Therefore, your engine will last longer without the need for a major engine repair.

We pride ourselves on being honest about what type of work your vehicle needs and having a quick turnaround at fair prices.

Frequently Asked Oil Change Questions

Why does changing my car’s oil matter?2017-09-13T13:19:45-07:00

Oil changes help to protect your car’s engine and to keep your car running better, longer. If you don’t change your car’s oil regularly, the engine performance will start to experience diminishing returns and begin to affect your fuel efficiency. Since oil also cleans your engine, substances like dirt, sludge, water, and debris can build up in your engine if you don’t have your oil changed out. Your car’s oil also reduces heat so nothing in your engine overheats. It minimizes engine parts’ friction to prevent as much wear and tear on your car as possible. All in all, a routine, simple oil can go a long way with your vehicle. Happy car, happy life.

Do driving conditions affect when oil should be changed?2017-09-13T13:30:30-07:00

It’s not just the amount of miles on your car that affects when the oil should be changed, but the driving conditions as well.

M. LaMarch

Some time ago we read in the paper how you helped the people who were on their way home to Oregon, but their car stalled in California. Because you had worked on their car when they were in Reno, they called you about the trouble, and you made the long trip to assist them. We want you to know how much we admire your actions and we certainly have you down as the person we want to work on our car should the need arise.
