Oil Is The Life Blood Of Your Engine

The Most Important Auto Service Tip You Will Ever Get. Fresh Oil Is Liquid Gold To Your Car!

Yes it sounds too simple to be true, but an oil change is the most important auto service procedure you can do for your car. It is not uncommon today for owners who follow good auto maintenance rules to get 150,000 to 250,000 miles on their cars!

Here Are The Rules – Be In The Know

  • Change synthetic oil every 5,000 miles.
  • Change your antifreeze every 2 years.
  • Change your brake fluid every 2 years.
  • Change your transmission fluid as per manufacturer’s recommendations.
  • Do scheduled maintenance according manufacturer’s specifications.
  • Check for potential problems before they happen.

Some Car Manufacturers…have increased their oil change intervals to as high as 20,000 miles. Do they have some secret in their engines that all the other companies don’t have. No. But it sure sounds good when you’re trying to sell as $50,000 car. So who’s right?

Industry Professionals Know…Engineers, oil companies, and top auto service technicians (who aren’t trying to sell you a car) all agree. The 3,000/5,000 rule is still the best and safest policy for your car, no matter what make or model you have. That’s what they do on their own cars and that’s what you should do too.

It’s Your Car…Wise car owners take the time and pay a little now to maintain their cars on schedule. The rest do late or no maintenance and pay a lot for towing and repairs. It’s your choice.
