More Oil Change Information

Whether you have a newer car or older car, it’s important to maintain good oil-change etiquette. Whether you trust us, your local dealership to keep up with your vehicle’s maintenance, or do it yourself, here are some more oil-change tips to keep in mind:

  • Our service team has earned the trust of drivers all across the Wakefield, MA region, and we utilize state-of-the-art equipment so we can work quickly on your vehicle.
  • It’s not uncommon to hear about the “3000-mile oil change,” but most modern vehicles can go 5,000 to 7,500 miles between changes. You can always check your owner’s manual for a more precise recommendation.
  • Synthetic oil or regular oil? Your owner’s manual will be able to tell you which one is necessary, so be sure to check before attempting to change the oil yourself.
  • Drivers who take advantage of our rotating service specials can save on necessary maintenance like oil changes and tire rotations.
