It’s imperative that your oil is changed at regular intervals. Whether it’s by mileage or time, you also need to use the right type of oil to suit your driving habits. Our certified techs at JP Auto & Fleet Services know the best options for your car, truck or fleet of vehicles.

We consider these factors:

  • Age of vehicle
  • Climate
  • How you drive

You must follow your car manufacturers’ recommended maintenance schedule, which includes regular oil changes. Doing this dramatically increases the life of your vehicle and helps eliminate breakdowns.

Oil changes go beyond swapping out fluid. It’s the best time also to get a checkup.

At JP Auto & Fleet Services, our oil change service includes:

  • Full fluid and filter change
  • Complimentary vehicle inspection (100 point)
  • Air pressure adjustment
  • Fluid top off and adjustment
  • Battery and charging system test
  • Headlight & brake light check

Myths & Facts about Oil Changes for your Vehicle

Myth – Getting oil changes anywhere else but the dealership will void the car’s warranty.
Fact – As long as maintenance records are kept and documented you will not void the manufacturer’s warranty by getting your oil changed elsewhere.
Myth – Oil needs to be changed every 3,000 miles.
Fact – In newer vehicles, the 3,000-mile oil change is a thing of the past. Modern advancements in engines and lubrication products put the average oil change interval between 5,000 and 7,500 miles.
With some synthetic oil applications going up to 15,000 miles, the proper interval depends on the manufacturer. Based on manufacturer specifications JP Auto & Fleet Services will determine this interval for you.
Note: You should always follow the Manufacturer’s Recommended Mileage Interval for oil changes.
Myth – Once oil turns black it is no longer good and needs to be changed.
Fact – While newer oil is amber in color it is perfectly normal for oil to change to a darker black/brown tone. Oil actually has detergents in it that help strip carbon from the engine and carry it down to the pan where it settles and eventually filters out.

The carbon contributes to the black tone. As long as you use quality lubrication products and perform oil changes at the recommended intervals, the color should have zero bearing on determining if the oil needs to be changed.
