Oil & filter change
time your engine oil gradually loses its ability to lubricate and protect internal engine components. Friction between moving
parts inside your engine causes them to wear. Low, thin or old oil causes the mechanical components to wear much faster. The
only way to prevent this is to replace it - usually every 12 months or less for higher mileage vehicles.
Your vehicle’s engine requires the correct grade of oil in order to lubricate and protect the internal
parts. The grade of oil for your vehicle is determined by the vehicle manufacturer based on the size, type, general working
conditions and operating temperature ranges of the engine. Some cars take special oils, many of which we stock.
In addition to cooling and lubricating the metal surfaces of your car’s
engine, oil carries away dirt and metal particles. These contaminants are removed from the oil by the oil filter, but often
the oil and filter can become clogged with debris. If engine wear is to be minimised and the engine’s optimum efficiency
and life span maintained, both must be replaced.
The following essential fluids will be checked and if required will be topped up:
