The Benefits of Regular Oil Changes
By following through with routine maintenance tasks such as caring for your oil, you'll ensure reliable transportation now and many miles into the future.
- Improved Engine Performance: One of the primary benefits of regular oil changes is that they can help to improve engine performance. Over time, motor oil breaks down and becomes contaminated with dirt, debris, and other substances. This can cause engine parts to wear down more quickly and can lead to decreased engine performance. Regular oil changes help to prevent this by removing dirty oil from the engine and replacing it with fresh oil.
- Increased Fuel Efficiency: Another benefit of regular oil changes is that they can help to increase fuel efficiency. When motor oil breaks down, it becomes thicker and less able to lubricate engine parts effectively. This can cause the engine to work harder, which can lead to decreased fuel efficiency. Regular oil changes help to keep the engine lubricated properly, which can lead to improved fuel economy.
- Extended Engine Life: In addition to improving engine performance and increasing fuel efficiency, regular oil changes can also help to extend the life of your engine. Over time, dirty oil can cause engine parts to wear down and break, which can lead to expensive repairs or even a complete engine failure. By changing your oil regularly, you can help to prevent this type of damage and extend the life of your engine.
- Reduced Emissions: Finally, regular oil changes can also help to reduce emissions from your vehicle. When motor oil breaks down, it releases pollutants into the air that can contribute to smog and other environmental problems. By changing your oil regularly, you can help to reduce these emissions and do your part in protecting the environment.
Q. "What happens if I wait too long for an oil change?"Your oil helps lubricate and absorb heat within your engine. If you wait too long to get an oil change, your engine will eventually have severe and costly issues. Luckily oil changes are relatively inexpensive and have a quick service time.

Q. "What type of oil should I get for my vehicle?"This depends on what vehicle you drive. Each type has its own benefits such as life expectancy or price. If you are unsure what type of oil is right for your car, we can help you determine the best option for you.
Q. "How much oil does my vehicle require?"Most vehicles hold between 5 and 8 quarts, but it largely depends on the size of your engine.
Q. "What is a Digital Vehicle Inspection?"With a complimentary Digital Vehicle Inspection (DVI) on every visit, you’ll see firsthand photos of your vehicle from under the hood. We’ll let you know if everything is functioning properly or if there are any areas of concern. You can even approve or deny our service recommendations, all straight from your smartphone, or you can, of course, give us a call and we’ll explain our findings in further detail.
Q. "Do you offer a warranty?"As part of our Nice difference.® commitment to providing our customers the best auto service experience possible, we also offer a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty on all the work that we do.
