Cleaning Your Engine
Oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle, and the job it does is absolutely vital. The oil flowing through your engine lubricates the delicate parts inside, preventing damaging metal on metal contact and helping those components last longer and work more efficiently.
Over time, dirt and other impurities accumulate inside the engine oil, reducing its lubricating abilities and reducing its protective capabilities. That is why it is so important to change the engine oil on a regular basis. By changing the engine oil, you can maintain that vital lubrication and protect the delicate components inside your engine.
The engine oil provides vital protection for your vehicle, but it is only half the story. The oil filter is the other half, and it must be changed at regular intervals as well.
When you bring your vehicle to Great Falls Auto Repair, we will change the oil and filter, maintaining the protection needed for long engine life. We use only the highest quality filters, along with the recommended engine oil for your vehicle. When you drive away, you can do so with confidence, knowing your engine will be well protected until your next scheduled oil change.
Are You Overdue for Your Next Oil Change?
The owner’s manual for your vehicle will contain information about the recommended oil change intervals, and you should take those recommendations to heart. For most vehicles, that recommended oil change interval will be from 3,000 to 5,000 miles, although hard driving may require more frequent oil changes.
If you think you are due for your next oil change, just check the sticker on your windshield, then check your mileage. When it is time for your next oil change, just bring your car, truck, or SUV to Great Falls Auto Repair. We will change your oil, give you a fresh new filter and send you on your way with confidence.
