Plenty of Services Offered

Our service team is provided with all the latest diagnostic and procedural information so they can most effectively treat your vehicle. We realize that car repair is extremely stressful because there is never a convenient time for a break down. We have a large, clean and comfortable waiting area and offer two drive-through repair bays for your convenience. Common services include oil changes, filter replacement, transmission work, engine tune-ups, tire rotation, and coolant flushes.

Your engine contains a myriad of moving parts and motor oil works to lubricate, cool, and to avoid corrosion of those parts. Modern oil also contains additives to collect filth that enters the engine to keep it from grinding on engine components. Eventually though, oil will become so clogged with foreign particles that it will need to be replaced. Here are two points about oil that will hopefully clear up a few myths:

  • 3,000 miles was the old marker for when oil should be changed. Now, many manufactures say that you can go much longer. Many recommend 5,000, 7,000, or even 10,000 miles, as to when you should replace your oil. Check your owner’s manual for how often your vehicle requires this service.
  • Dark oil isn’t always dirty oil. When inspecting your dipstick, you see that the clear oil you just installed two months ago is almost black. It doesn’t need replacing, it’s just doing its job. The dark color indicates that the detergents in the oil are latching onto damaging foreign particles in your engine.
