LONGER OIL CHANGE INTERVALS?

LONGER OIL CHANGE INTERVALS?

Now, Most Synthetic Oil Change Intervals are stretching as long as a year. Now you may not have to go to your local shop for service but once a year right? Well, not exactly. Your oil filter needs to be replaced in between oil changes. It is important to do a basic check over between intervals(approx. 6 months) to maintain peake performance levels. Check your Owner’s Manual for your next factory recommended service. The inspection required is determined by the current vehicle mileage. We have the tools & experience to get the job done!
