Oil Change in Castro Valley, CA
An oil change is a vital service that we provide at our Castro Valley auto repair shop. Most owners do not give it much thought – just another chore to be done now and then. But regular oil changes are vital to your vehicle’s wellbeing. At Adams Autoworx in Castro Valley, we recommend a synthetic oil change every 5000 miles – for most vehicles. We use the highest quality Castrol engine oil that provides both chemical and mechanical properties your car’s engine requires to operate at its best.
Regular oil change offers multiple benefits:
- Removal of old engine oil and oil filter also removes debris and grime that are collected as the oil moves through the engine.
- New oil filter can efficiently filter new engine oil, putting less strain on the system.
- Fresh engine oil has correct chemical and mechanical properties to protect the engine, thus it extends engine life.
- At Adams Autoworx we also perform a free digital vehicle inspection, thus we get a chance to spot impending problems before they develop fully. We provide you an electronic copy of the inspection results so you can always be up-to-date on the overall condition of your vehicle.
How often should your vehicle undergo an oil change?
If your vehicle uses conventional oil, an oil change should be done every 3000 miles. If your vehicle uses 100% synthetic oil, you should bring it in for an oil change every 5000 miles or every 6 months, whichever comes first. Engine oil loses its properties due to the passage of time, and exposure to high heat, so regular oil change is a necessity. A regular oil change is one of the least expensive, yet one of the most important services to keep your vehicle healthy, and to extend engine life. If you are not sure if your vehicle needs an engine oil change, bring it to our Castro Valley repair shop – our mechanics can inspect the oil and determine if it needs to be replaced. Do not delay oil change – it causes unnecessary wear on the engine, and engine replacement is a very expensive repair. We also recommend periodically checking the engine oil level in your vehicle between the oil changes – especially if you drive Toyota Prius or other vehicles known for excessive oil consumption.
