Oil & Filter Change Service

Knowing that you will need to have your oil changed often results in a less than enthusiastic response from drivers, but the truth is that this service is designed to do more than waste your time and money. The oil change service is important because it removes toxins from your engine and replaces the valuable fluids that create a seal between pistons, rings, and cylinder walls, plus it acts as a cooling agent to reduce overheating. As you drive, the oil breaks down from the heat that is created by your engine, making the oil less likely to do its job. When you don't change your oil often, the tarnish build up that occurs proves harmful to your vehicle and can't provide the service it was put there to do.

Flushing your engine regularly promotes healthy function, clears away debris and toxins, and keeps your vehicle in its top running condition. With proper maintenance, these models are capable of seeing more than 200,000 miles, but we don't just work on Toyota and Scion models, because we know that convenience is about more than proximity to your service location; it's about knowing you can trust the technicians working on your vehicle. We even offer service specials, including our Basic Required Service Special which gives customers a special price for those services that you need to have on a regular basis, including oil changes.
