To make sure your vehicle runs smoothly, follow your manufacturer’s recommendations as closely as possible. If you ignore getting regular oil and filter changes, it can cause serious engine damage. Your car needs oil changes on a regular basis to keep the parts lubricated and to help prevent your engine from overheating. Regular tune-ups are also recommended. A tune-up involves changing your old, worn-out spark plugs and replacing them with new ones. We will also take a look at your spark plug wires and your distributor cap to make sure everything is in good condition.
If you’re in the Tualatin or Wilsonville area, come and see us for your vehicle scheduled maintenance needs. We perform everything from wheel alignments to tire balancing, brake inspections, and computer diagnostics tests. We can also check your emissions to make sure that they’re at the current required standard levels. As for oil changes, you should have one performed every 3,000 miles or so. Clean motor oil should have a light, honey-colored amber hue. Dirty motor oil will be thick and sludge-like, and it will be darker in color. Check your oil regularly, and come see us today if you’re in need of an oil and filter change.
