Oil Changes Services in Columbia, PA

What's on the car to-do list that you've been putting off? More than likely, it's that check oil light. It is no secret that oil changes are the most common type of car service that cars need. Depending on your oil, you can get anywhere from 3,000 miles to upwards of 9,000 miles on a single change. However, a lot more goes into oil changes than just pointing and choosing an oil. Certain oils are designed for certain kinds of cars and even more, all manufacturers have their own recommended oil designed for specific makes.

Ford Oil Change

Why Is Oil So Important?

Your oil works directly with the parts surrounding your engine to keep them properly lubricated no matter the temperature. The lubrication prevents the parts from rubbing together and breaking down.


Oil Change Types

Oil Icon

Conventional Oil - Conventional oil is the most commonly known oil that follows the old rule of thumb to be changed at 3,000 miles (roughly every three months). Conventional oil is best for cars with older, simple engines or your first oil change as essentially, a break-in.

Oil Icon

Semi-synthetic Oil - Semi-Synthetic oil is used in most modern cars. This oil is designed by each manufacturer to read their independent standards which is why it is always important to go to a certified service center. Oil changes are roughly around every 6,000 miles.

Oil Icon

Synthetic Oil - Full-synthetic oil changes are for more performance cars. It is a higher-end oil that is purer and can handle the demands of the vehicle. We do not recommend using a lower grade oil as this can affect performance. Oil changes can wait as long as 9,000 miles!

Replacing Your Oil Filter

Think you have to change your oil too often? Think about your oil filter and how hard it works to keep debris and other contaminants from getting into your oil and engine. We recommend having it changed or cleaned during every oil change. In doing so, you can drastically increase vehicle performance. Getting your oil changed is essential to the way your engine works. Keeping things well lubricated and at a constant, healthy temperature goes a long way to ensuring your car is safe and ready to drive for miles. Still, have questions about oil changes?
