Basic Oil Change Services – One of Your Vehicle’s Most Important Services
Today’s engines require frequent oil change services to keep the oil flowing through small oil passages that feed computer controlled solenoids. To maintain the best power and fuel economy these new engines must be clean and well lubricated. With engine piston pressures of 2000 psi and temperatures reaching 4000 degrees, engine oils must lubricate parts moving at very high speeds for thousands of miles of drive time.
At Powertune Auto Repair, changing your vehicle’s engine oil includes installing the correct oil that meets or exceeds the required standards. Some cars use conventional oil, while many newer or high performance cars run on synthetic engine oil. These synthetic oils are more resistant to breakdown under high temperatures and resist development of sludge deposits in the crankcase and small oil passages.
Many car manufacturers, like Subaru, Chevrolet, Toyota, require synthetic oils on some of their models. Synthetic oils are better than standard or blended engine oils and extend mileage intervals to a range of 5,000 to 7,000 miles as compared to the 3,000-mile standard that’s been around for years.
Oil Change Service by Experienced Maintenance Mechanics
One of the main benefits of having your oil changed at Powertune Auto Repair is the knowledge and experience of our mechanics. We look your vehicle over to identify any immediate maintenance or repair concerns because we know early detection can save you money on repairs. Many quick lube shops hire individuals with little or no automotive experience. When a “franchise” focuses on the convenience and speed of “right now” appointments along with upselling other maintenance items to increase their bottom line profits, the result can be missed or overlooked problems like engine oil leaks. Here’s how our integrity and experience saves you money:
- we won’t sell you anything your vehicle doesn’t need
- we look for indicators of small problems that can turn into bigger and more costly repairs
- we install BG Products cleaners when inferior oil or infrequent oil changes lead to excessive buildup in your engine’s crankcase
