While the frequency of oil changes may vary from automobile to automobile, oil changes are probably the single most valuable maintenance process a car owner can implement. Motor oil is the life blood to your car's engine. If you do not change your oil on a regular basis, then you are risking serious damage to your vehicles engine.
Most cars today use multi-grade oil. Multi grade motor oil works efficiently in cold and hot weather. Each vehicle offers a classification of its engine which reveals its viscosity. Viscosity is the friction or resistance to oil flow. Our skilled mechanics will utilize the type of oil recommended for your vehicle's engine. Aside from the various types of oils that are made of 100% petroleum, there are also synthetic oils that are made of chemically compounded lubricants which can provide high viscosity over a wider range of temperature and reduced oil thickening and reduced wear and tear on your engines vital parts. While most foreign cars utilize synthetic motor oil which recommend changing the oil every 10,000 miles, here at the Foreign Car Clinic we recommend following the oil change frequency provided in your specific vehicles manual.
