Oil changes are one of the most important vehicle maintenance services. To ensure the health and performance of your engine, take your car to Quanz Auto Care for better routine vehicle maintenance.
Why Do You Need an Oil Change?
Motor oil lubricates the moving parts of your engine to eliminate friction and control engine temperature. Over time, oil becomes contaminated and loses viscosity. Dirty oil cannot protect your engine effectively, decreasing fuel economy. Dirty oil can also leave deposits and/or form a varnish or sludge on engine components that can cause your engine to fail. Regular oil changes are required to maintain optimal fuel efficiency and maximize the life of your engine.
When Do You Need an Oil Change?
“Every three months or every 3,000 miles—whichever comes sooner” is the oil change schedule most people know. While this is true for older vehicles that use petroleum-based oils, most newer vehicles (manufactured after 2010) require synthetic oils, which last longer—closer to 4,000 or 5,000 miles.
When your car needs an oil change is outlined in the manufacturer’s vehicle maintenance recommendations (found in the owner’s manual). If you are unsure of your vehicle maintenance schedule, contact us. We can look up the recommended oil change schedule for your vehicle’s make and model.
Better Vehicle Maintenance Service
While chain lube shops may seem like a cost-effective option for oil changes, their advertised price usually only includes the oil change service. By the time you add in the cost of the oil and filters, you are paying significantly more. You are better served by investing in better mechanical services provided by the ASE-certified Master Technicians at Quanz Auto Care. Our price for oil changes includes all necessary materials, so there are no hidden costs.
You also get the peace of mind of having an experienced mechanic service your car. Oil changes are an opportunity to inspect your vehicle for other maintenance issues, allowing us to identify and troubleshoot small problems before they require costly repairs.
At Quanz Auto Care, we also provide a better customer experience. When you come in for an oil change, we offer free coffee, tea, water and Wi-Fi while you wait. If you cannot wait, we provide courtesy shuttle service. Contact us to schedule routine vehicle maintenance.
