Need an Oil Change?

Simple. Effective. Inexpensive.

Change the oil regularly. Protect the life of your car.

One of the simplest, most effective and inexpensive ways to help protect the life of your car, especially its engine, is to change the oil and the oil filter regularly.

Oil is the lifeblood of your engine. It reduces friction, lessens wear, provides lubrication, forms a seal between the pistons, rings and cylinder walls while helping to cool engine parts. Without the cleaning action of new oil, carbon and varnish buildup would be toxic to the engine. And engine oil even dampens the shock and noise of moving parts.


Synthetic Oil vs. Conventional Oil

Is synthetic oil better for your vehicle?

AAA put synthetic oil to the test to see if it really is better, and the results are eye-opening.

According to a study conducted by AAA’s Approved Auto Repair facilities, synthetic oil performed 47% better than conventional oils. They found this is especially true for newer cars with turbo engines and vehicles that often drive in stop-and-go traffic. Cars in extreme hot or cold conditions or those that tow loads can also benefit from synthetic oil.

“It’s understandable that drivers may be skeptical of any service that is nearly twice the cost of the alternative,” continued Nielsen. “While a manufacturer-approved conventional oil will not harm a vehicle’s engine, the extra $30 per oil change could actually save money in the long run by protecting critical engine components over time.”

– John Nielsen, AAA’s managing director of Automotive Engineering and Repair

AAA was quite honest about the findings. You aren’t going to put yourself in the poorhouse if you opt in for the synthetic, either — these oils add only $64 a year on average to vehicle-operation costs. Read the complete article here on AAA’s website.
