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.
Your vehicle’s oil filter is an important part of the system. An engine full of dirty oil will not have a long lifespan. The oil filter keeps dirt, rust, and other particles out of the system. All filters eventually get dirty and have to be replaced, so it’s considered a standard part of many oil change packages. All lube, oil, and filter jobs also include checking and refilling the vehicle’s fluid levels including;
  1. Windshield wiper fluid
  2. Antifreeze or engine coolant
  3. Transmission fluid
  4. 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.
