It doesn’t matter what type of vehicle you drive, you want to keep it on the road for as long as possible. The easiest and most important way to ensure that your vehicle continues to run smoothly and reliably for miles to come is with regular auto maintenance and service. And one of the first things on that list should be your oil change. At O’Bryan Automotive Repair, we are dedicated to your satisfaction and helping you protect the integrity of your vehicle.
The interior of your engine includes multiple components that all work together to keep your engine fired up. As they all work in tandem, it causes friction which will accelerate the wear and tear as well as create more heat. To decrease that friction, motor oil lubricates the interior of your engine and all of its components.
As motor oil ages it breaks down and leaves sludge and build up on the components, increasing the friction. This is why oil changes are so important. After about 3,000 miles, that old oil needs to be replaced with fresh, clean oil.
At O’Bryan Automotive Repair we offer a comprehensive oil change service that includes a filter inspection or change, fluid checks, and a vehicle inspection. While the general rule of thumb is that you should have your oil changed every 3 months or 3,000 miles, this may change based on your vehicle and driving habits.
While a regular oil change is crucial to the health of your vehicle, it is not the only maintenance service your vehicle needs. Some other auto maintenance services to add to your schedule include:
- Brake Service Including Brake Pads and Fluid
- Belts, Hoses, and Chains Inspection and Replacement
- Transmission Service
- Fluid Service
- Tire Inspections
- Engine Service & Tune-Ups
- Tire Rotation
- Wheel Alignment
When you have your auto maintenance performed by an expert like O’Bryan Automotive Repair, it not only allows us to keep your vehicle running smoothly, but it also gives us a chance to inspect your vehicle for potential damage and minor issues so we can repair them before they get worse. This will not only keep your vehicle on the road for years to come, but it will also save you money on repair bills further down the line.
