Oil Changes in Santa Rosa

August 1st, 2016

The Importance of Changing Your Oil

Oil in your vehicle helps keep operations smooth, but over time it becomes like sludge and can cause an engine to overheat. This can blow the head gasket; and unless you've got exceptional sentimental attachment to your vehicle, at that point it's kaput. The cost of fixing a gasket usually makes buying a new engine a cheaper option, and a new engine is not cheap!

Change your oil at least once every 5,000 miles. For oil changes in Santa Rosa, use a center that does complete, affordable work in a timely manner.

Exterior Services

If you go to one of those lube places specifically catering to oil changes, you will probably spend more money in the long run than if you went to a full-service shop. Theses quick oil change places charge a small price for the oil change and make sizable markups and charges for additional, often unnecessary services to your vehicle. Meanwhile, a larger auto care center that provides a variety of services doesn't have the same motivation to overcharge customers. The larger auto care center can provide only needed services, confident that happy customers will return. The larger center's motivation is great customer service.

What Kind of Services to Watch For

When choosing a full-service center, find one whose goal it is to completely care for a vehicle from bumper to bumper. All your vehicle-related issues can be resolved at a single location. Look for a facility that offers help with:

  • General tuneups

  • Air filter replacement

  • Belts and hoses

  • Batteries

  • Cooling system and heating system repair and maintenance

  • Drive line repair and maintenance

  • Electrical systems

  • Exhaust

  • Flat tire repair

  • Fluid flushing and system maintenance

  • General preventative maintenance

  • Wheel alignment

  • Windshield wiper sales and installation
