Oil Change, Lube, Filter
A lube, oil & filter job
Oil changes are often described as a “lube, oil, and filter” job. This means:
- Your car will have all the old oil drained and replaced with new oil.
- The old oil filter is replaced with a new one.
- The chassis is lubricated.
- Windshield wiper fluid
- Antifreeze or engine coolant
- Transmission fluid
- Power steering fluid
Types of Oil
When you schedule an oil change, the mechanic may ask what kind of oil you have put in your vehicle. There are several reasons why:
- You can choose between “ordinary” oil and synthetic oil.
- Synthetic oil is said to offer better protection for your engine.
- There are different thicknesses of motor oil.
- Your car manufacturer recommends a specific type for your vehicle, but you may have an option between a thicker or thinner type.
- Thinner oil may improve your car’s cold starting ability in winter weather.
- Some oil is sold as “multi-viscosity” or multi-grade.
- Synthetic oil is more expensive than regular oil, but there are semi-synthetic varieties. Ask your mechanic what is best for your car, but know that “ordinary” motor oil is fine for your vehicle. You don’t need the most expensive kind on the market.
