Oil Change & Maintenance: The Life Blood of Your Engine’s Performance

Your engine is the heart of your vehicle, and like any hardworking heart, it needs proper care and nourishment to keep it running smoothly. Regular oil changes and maintenance are crucial for optimal engine performance, longevity, and fuel efficiency. At Coopers Auto Care, we offer comprehensive oil change and maintenance services for cars and trucks of all makes and models, ensuring your engine stays healthy and performs at its peak.

Why Are Oil Changes Important?

Engine oil serves several vital functions:

  • Lubrication: Oil creates a protective film between moving engine parts, reducing friction and wear.
  • Cooling: Oil helps dissipate heat generated by the engine, preventing overheating and potential damage.
  • Cleaning: Oil contains detergents that help clean the engine of dirt, debris, and wear particles.
  • Protection: Oil also contains additives that protect the engine from corrosion and rust.

Over time, engine oil breaks down and becomes less effective, losing its lubricating and protective properties. This can lead to increased engine wear, reduced performance, and even catastrophic engine failure. Regular oil changes are essential for removing old, contaminated oil and replacing it with fresh oil, ensuring your engine stays in top condition.

Our Comprehensive Oil Change Services:

  • Oil Change: We’ll drain your old oil, replace the oil filter, and refill your engine with high-quality oil that meets or exceeds your manufacturer’s recommendations.

  • Multi-Point Inspection: During every oil change, our technicians will perform a complimentary multi-point inspection to check your vehicle’s overall health and identify any potential issues. This includes checking fluid levels, tire pressure, belts, hoses, lights, and more.

  • Synthetic Oil Change: Synthetic oil offers superior protection and performance compared to conventional oil, especially in extreme temperatures. We offer synthetic oil changes for those seeking the best protection for their engine.

  • Diesel Oil Change: Diesel engines have unique lubrication needs. We use specialized diesel engine oil formulated to handle the high temperatures and pressures of diesel engines.

  • High-Mileage Oil Change: If your car has over 75,000 miles, we recommend a high-mileage oil change. High-mileage oil contains special additives that help reduce oil consumption and leaks in older engines.

  • Fluid Level Checks: We’ll check the levels of your engine oil, coolant, transmission fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid, and windshield washer fluid. We’ll top them off as needed and alert you to any leaks or potential problems.
  • Tire Inspection: We’ll check your tire pressure and tread depth, ensuring they’re properly inflated and have sufficient tread for safe driving.
  • Lights Inspection: We’ll ensure all your lights are working correctly, including headlights, taillights, brake lights, turn signals, and hazard lights.

  • Battery Test: We’ll test your battery’s voltage and cold cranking amps to ensure it’s healthy and can start your engine reliably.
  • Wiper Blade Inspection: We’ll check your wiper blades for wear and tear, ensuring they can effectively clear your windshield in all weather conditions.
  • Additional Checks: We may also inspect other components, such as the air filter, cabin air filter, and chassis lubrication, depending on your vehicle’s specific needs.

Oil Change Intervals: How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

The recommended oil change interval varies depending on your vehicle’s make, model, year, and driving conditions. Most newer cars can go 5,000 to 7,500 miles between oil changes, while some older vehicles might require more frequent changes. Always refer to your owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommended oil change interval.

Signs Your Car Needs an Oil Change

  • Dark or Dirty Oil: Check your oil dipstick regularly. If the oil is dark or dirty, it’s time for a change.
  • Low Oil Level: A low oil level can indicate a leak or excessive oil consumption.
  • Engine Noise: If your engine is making unusual noises, such as ticking or knocking, it could be a sign of low oil pressure or worn-out engine parts.
  • Check Engine Light: The check engine light can illuminate for various reasons, including low oil pressure or other engine problems.
