Getting an oil change shouldn’t take all day. At some locations that provide oil changes, you could wait four hours or more. We understand that you have better things to do. With an appointment at Kernersville Auto Center, you can get an express oil change quickly. Our goal is to get you back on the road as fast as possible. As an added benefit, we use top-quality Havoline products. When you treat your car right, your engine will last longer and run better!
How Oil Changes Benefit Your Car
Sometimes, life can get busy. It might be tempting to put off an oil change. We all tell ourselves that we’ll have more time next week. It can be put off for a few more miles, right?
In actuality, getting your oil changed when a change is due is one of the best ways to extend the life of your engine. We don’t recommend putting it off. Additionally, you may also want to schedule other repairs at the same time. When you need an oil change, it is also a great time to perform other basic preventative maintenance. Some locations only change oil. Here at Kernersville Auto Center, we can check tire pressure and rotate tires, repair brakes, and more. We’re a one-stop-shop for preventative maintenance. Additionally, we can also change a flat tire or fix a slow leak in your tire if you have concerns. Our team fixes many problems same-day so you don’t have to wait or be without your car.
Oil changes are vital to your vehicle because dirty oil can cause lubrication problems in your engine. If you drive on dirt roads or in dusty locations often, you may need to change your oil more regularly. When in doubt, one of our ASE-Certified mechanics can give you a recommendation on when to get an oil change.
Your oil change includes changing the oil filter as is recommended by most manufacturers. Unlike some other locations where you can get your oil changed, we won’t leave you with a dirty filter. This would compromise the benefits of having new oil. As the oil runs through the system, it can collect dirt from a dirty filter. So, a new oil filter always makes sense. When you schedule an oil change at Kernersville Auto Center, we’ll also check your fluids and vacuum your floorboards. Your car will leave our shop looking and running great.
We even have a state-of-the-art car wash on the premises to complete the job!
Oil Products and Cost
At Kernersville Auto Center, we use Havoline lubrication products. This is part of the reason why we’re one of the best locations in North Carolina for an oil change. An oil change won’t help much if your mechanics aren’t using quality products. You may need to change your oil more often or you may have engine problems with cheap, low-quality oil.
For most cars, synthetic oil makes sense. However, you can also choose conventional oil or a synthetic blend, which is a combination of synthetic and conventional.
Synthetic oil is more expensive, while conventional is least expensive. However, in many cases synthetic oil can increase the lifespan of your engine. Also, you don’t need to change synthetic oil as often, therefore the long-term cost may actually be lower. So, that is what we recommend in most cases, depending on the age of the car and your driving patterns. Our team can give you a breakdown of the prices for your different oil options. After the oil change, we don’t want the cost to be a surprise. You can join our loyalty program to earn points for every dollar you spend. This is a great way to save money on future oil changes or other services. We pride ourselves on our friendly customer service. No matter what your car requires, we discuss the details and cost with you in advance. Our customers keep returning because we treat everyone as we do our own family.
No matter which type of oil you choose, our mechanics will choose the best weight for your car. The oil “weight” refers to the viscosity at different temperatures. Your manufacturer will recommend a certain weight for peak performance. During your express oil change, we use the right weight, which is specifically formulated to work best with your engine.
