I asked to expedite oil change service in order to accommodate another appointment within the hour. They did everything to get me in and out quickly. Thoroughly inspected vehicle and found several additional recommended services from which we prioritized service and follow-up. I did not feel pressured and felt there was a strong customer care ethic in place. Clean and comfortable waiting room. I even think my car came back to me cleaner than when I left it. Very satisfied with service and would return and recommend to others.

Frequently Asked Questions
It’s important to follow the recommended oil change service schedule for your vehicle. Motor oil works to keep your engine clean, lubricate thousands of internal components as the oil moves through the engine, and prevent the engine from overheating by absorbing the heat caused by friction.
Over time, as the oil circulates through your engine it absorbs debris and dirt, which is great for your engine but makes the oil less able to do its job over time. If the dirty oil is not changed regularly, excessive sludge can build up and cause enough damage to lead to complete engine failure.
Because of motor oil’s heat-absorbing properties, another issue is trying to run your engine with low oil levels. Without regular oil change services, your oil level may become low without you knowing it. When your engine tries to run without a sufficient amount of lubrication, components can get hot very quickly. All of the metal parts start rubbing together directly, causing an unsustainable amount of heat and wearing the parts down prematurely. This will quickly result in your engine seizing up and failing.
Keeping up with a regular car oil change schedule will save you thousands of dollars in a new engine. Getting an oil change service done is one of the least expensive and least time-consuming services there is, yet one of the most important when it comes to the life of your vehicle.

If you have not been following a regular oil change schedule and are wondering if your oil needs to be replaced, there are a couple of ways to determine if it is time for an oil change service. These include:
- A “Check Engine” or “Low Oil” light is illuminated on your vehicle’s instrument panel.
- When checking your oil with the dipstick, the oil level is indicated as being low.
- The oil feels gritty between your fingers, comes out in globs, or is milky-looking when you check your engine’s oil dipstick.
- Your engine is running louder than normal.
The best bet is to follow the manufacturer’s recommended oil change schedule for your vehicle. Whenever you get an oil change done at a service center, a sticker will be placed on the inside of your windshield to help remind you when you are due for your next oil change based on the recommended mileage or time interval.

The first place to start is to check your vehicle’s owner’s manual for recommendations. Some newer vehicles have electronic oil monitors and do not have a traditional dipstick. If your vehicle is not equipped with electronic oil monitoring, manually checking the oil level is easier than you may think. Just follow these steps:
- After your engine is warm, park on level ground, and turn off the engine.
- Wait a few minutes to let the oil settle.
- Open the engine hood and locate the oil dipstick. It will usually have a yellow or orange pull ring.
- Pull the dipstick out from the engine and wipe the oil off the end of it with a lint-free cloth.
- Reinsert the dipstick back into its tube, making sure to push it all the way back in.
- Pull the dipstick back out and look at the oil at the tip, comparing it to the markings that indicate the engine oil level.
Every dipstick has some indication of the proper oil level, such as the letters “L” and “H” (low and high), the words “MIN” and “MAX”, two pinholes, or an area of cross-hatching. If you see that the oil on the dipstick is below the minimum line, you need to add oil. Only add a small amount at a time. Overfilling the engine with too much oil can cause problems as well.
If your oil appears to have bits of debris in it or comes out in globs, it’s time to schedule an appointment for a complete oil change service, including a new oil filter.

Your engine’s oil filter is an essential part of keeping the oil cleaner longer. As the oil circulates through the engine it picks up dirt and debris, which is filtered out as the oil flows through the oil filter. But, the filter will reach a point where it won’t be able to absorb any more particles. This means the oil, whether it is new or old, will be flowing through the engine without any filtration.
Changing the oil filter along with your oil at every oil change service means that your new, clean oil can work optimally and stay clean longer.
Your vehicle’s owner’s manual will provide the manufacturer’s recommendation minimum oil specification. The manual may also include recommendations for different types of oil based on certain driving conditions or climates.
Different types of oil all have different viscosities and performance in protecting your engine. Whether it is conventional, synthetic blend, or full synthetic. Most newer vehicles require a full synthetic motor oil for optimum performance, but not always. Some vehicles require synthetic blend or standard conventional oil. While high mileage motor oil provides added protection for vehicles with 75,000 miles or more.
It may be a good idea to upgrade to a higher quality motor oil to get optimum performance out of your engine. Our ASE-certified technicians here at Driver’s Edge can help you determine the best type of oil for your vehicle.
Schedule your appointment today for an oil change service and make sure your engine can run at its best.
Unlike conventional oils consisting of strictly natural mineral oil with no additives, high mileage motor oils are specifically formulated to run in engines with more than 75,000 – 100,000 miles on the odometer. No matter the brand, this type of oil is going to either be a chemically engineered synthetic blend or full synthetic oil.
High mileage oil is specifically engineered to include additives that are for engines that have seen quite a bit of use and wear to help the engine continue to run at its best. The additives include:
- Seal conditioners: These conditioners help to rejuvenate and swell gaskets and seals back to their original shape and size. Helping to prevent oil leaks and maintain oil pressure.
- Specialized detergents: The detergents help to combat carbon and sludge buildup on internal engine components.
- Viscosity modifiers: As engines age, the space between components gets larger and oil has a hard time sufficiently lubricating critical parts of the engine. These viscosity modifiers keep the oil thicker to ensure proper lubrication throughout the engine.
- Friction modifiers: Like the viscosity modifiers, these modifiers help compensate for the looser internal tolerances between the moving parts. They also work to help the oil absorb more heat caused by friction.
- Anti-corrosion agents: These agents help maintain engine components as long as possible and prevent extended corrosion and rust.
