If there is one thing you can do to make your car last longer and improve the performance of your engine, it is changing the oil on a regular basis and at the recommended intervals. From the newest vehicle to the oldest classic, oil is the lifeblood of the engine, and keeping that oil in tip-top shape is perhaps the most effective way to squeeze more miles out of your automotive investment.
At DJ’s Repair Service, we recognize the importance of those oil changes, and we know that preventative maintenance is anything but routine. We also know how hard it can be to get around Linn without a reliable car, and that is why we work so hard to make every service simple, easy and fast.
Is It Time for Your Next Oil Change?
If you think it is time for your next oil change, just take a look inside your windshield. Oil changes are so important that mechanics place reminder stickers right inside, where drivers are sure to see them.
If it is time to change your oil, just call DJ’s Repair Service for an appointment, check our website or stop by for the service you need. We know what your vehicle needs to keep running right, and we are dedicated to your protection and your convenience.
Could You Benefit From More Frequent Oil Changes?
For most vehicles, the recommended oil change interval ranges from 3,000 to 5,000 miles, but that is just a rule of thumb. Some drivers may need to change their oil more frequently, and it is important to look at your own needs and driving habits.
If you pull a trailer, drive in hot weather or do a lot of stop-and-go driving, you may need to change your oil more frequently. If you think you need more frequent oil changes, just contact DJ’s Repair Service for more information. We will evaluate your driving habits, make expert recommendations and help you provide your engine with the protection it needs.
Is Synthetic Oil the Right Choice for You?
You may be wondering if the switch to synthetic oil makes sense for your vehicle, and there are a number of factors at play here. Synthetic oil is more expensive than traditional oil, so your oil change will cost a bit more. On the other hand, synthetic oil provides superior lubrication and longer life, so your engine should get better protection.
That could actually save you money in the long run, but it is important to weigh the pros and cons. At DJ’s Repair Service, we can help Linn area drivers make the right choice, so they can protect their engines, and their wallets, for many years and many miles to come.
