Oil Change

Every car owner knows that oil changes are necessary to keep your vehicle running properly and safely on the road. The rule of thumb many drivers follow is having an oil change every 3 months or 3,000 miles, whichever comes first. Our technicians keep track of manufacturer recommendations, so you know the best times to have the oil changed for your vehicle.

We also track the appropriate type and weight of oil (for example, 5w20 or 10w30). These numbers relate to the viscosity, or thickness, of the oil, and are determined by the engine properties and external factors, like temperature. We’ll help you understand your options, including conventional or synthetic oil, and determine what is right for your vehicle.

When you bring your vehicle in to Melton Automotive for an oil change, our technicians take care of you! We understand the manufacturer recommendations and get to know your vehicle, so we can provide the best service and the right oil for your vehicle.

If you wait too long between oil changes, the oil thickens and looks like sludge. As it moves through the engine, it can clog passages and cause premature wear of engine components. To avoid added engine stress and damage, don’t put off getting your oil changed.

Our full service oil change includes an inspection of hoses, belts, air filter, and fluids. We’ll also top off your windshield washer fluid. As part of your regularly scheduled oil changes, our service advisors will help you keep track of other scheduled maintenance and inspections for your vehicle.
