Many people do not understand the value of a properly done oil change. By maintaining the proper lubrication in your engine it will lead to fewer repairs and help with fuel milage.
Along with doing an oil change, we also always check these items as well (But we won’t pressure you to buy them):
- Air filter for your Engine
- Power Steering Fluid
- Brake fluid
- Automatic transmission fluid
- We’ll also walk you through your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations for replacing these vital fluids and filters.
Master’s Touch Automobile will not only keep you informed when your next oil change is due but we will alert you to other items that need to be replaced or serviced. A common fix that needs to occur between 80,000 and 100,000 miles is to change your serpentine belt inside of your engine. Because your quick lube shop cannot offer this service it does not get brought to your attention and if this belt fails later it will ruin your engine. When you become a customer we service your entire car. Not one small part of it.

Why Does A Car Need Oil?
The simplest explanation is your cars engine runs by a series of mini explosions within the engine to create power. To make this happen you have hundreds of small parts that work together in an extremely hot engine.
The oil in your engine is the lubrication between all of that friction to keep your engine running smooth. If you wait too long to change your oil or just forget, your oil breaks down and turns into sludge, which could cause your engine to cease up, the only solution to that is to rebuild your engine or go buy another car.
It seems like a mundane basic service, however, it’s the most important service you can do to keep your keep your vehicle running smoothly and safely on the road.
Conventional Oil or Synthetic Oil
In a nutshell, Synthetic Oil is better for your vehicle. It lasts longer, runs cleaner and helps get more out of your engine. Which also means it’s more expensive, but it’s well worth the extra investment. We highly recommend you never go from Synthetic Oil back to Conventional Oil just to save money.
On the other hand, Conventional Oil has worked great for decades. If your vehicle has conventional oil, and that is what is suggested by the dealer, we suggest you continue using it. It’s how your car was designed. There are some rare cases we may suggest a change but that is on a case by case basis.
What is the deal with the Oil Filter?
The Oil Filter is there to clean the oil and make it last as long as possible, once you hit that 3,000-5,000 miles or 7,000 for some synthetic oils it needs to be replaced. You should always replace the oil filter during the service to get the best performance out of the new oil.
