POPULAR QUESTIONS

  • What type of oil should I use in my car?

    Engine oils are generally broken into three categories:

    Conventional (petroleum based mineral oil), Synthetic, and Blends (often called semi-synthetic)

    You should always follow your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations for engine oil.  While it might be alright to use synthetic engine oil in a vehicle that calls for conventional, you should never do the reverse.

    Conventional engine oils are less expensive than synthetics on average, but they’re also less heat stable.  Excessive heat can lead to the oils eventually breaking down, thinning out, and losing their lubrication abilities.  In the tight-tolerance and precision-aligned environment of your engine, this can quickly lead to increased wear and damage.

    All of the vehicles we service call for synthetic engine oil (and in many cases, call for a specific brand of synthetic engine oil).

    Still have questions?  Let us help!  We offer simple oil changes or a complete inspection of your vehicle’s system, depending on your needs.  Our technicians only use manufacturer-approved and compatible components, fluids and lubricants to keep your vehicle in top shape.

  • How often should I get my vehicle serviced?

    This depends on many factors:  Your vehicle’s make and model, how many miles you drive during the year, and even the region of the country you live in can all influence how often you need to get your car serviced.

    Servicing schedules for Porsche ranges from just under 10,000 miles to almost 19,000 for minor servicing, while some VW’s recommend minor servicing every 6,000 miles.

    With so many variables, it can be easy to fall behind on your vehicle’s servicing, leading to increased wear & tear and decreased performance.  Let us help you set up the optimal servicing schedule for your vehicle!
