Steve is really knowledgeable and friendly. Not only he did good job on my car, he also let know the Limited Service Campaign on my car, which potentially save me a lot of money. Thanks, Steve. I highly recommend him.

Anthony called before hand and let me know he was on his way. He arrived 10 min early, I was happy about that. He took his time and explained what he was doing and showed me my brakes are close to being due. Very friendly and overall grate experance for me. I will be using this company again and requesting Anthony Welborn.
This was my first experience with YourMechanic and it was definitely better then going to a local shop. He was clean, honest and was very knowledgeable. I will definitely recommend Anthony and YourMechanic to my friends, family and coworkers!

Warranty expired on the Jag so looked for a competitive price break on Fluid Flushes/Maintenance. Coolant flush: Digital dial reports healthy after flush (don't have a temp gauge) Brake Flush: Removed old fluid, brakes firmer Steering Fluid flush: Removed old fluid, turns smoothly Oil Change: Digital dial reports new oil, due in 12 months He seems knowledgeable on newer Jags, that tells me he and his party knows a lot about Euros, new or old

Oil Change Service

What is an oil change all about?

Engine oil is the lifeblood of the engine. The oil resides in the oil pan, which is under the car attached to the bottom of the engine. All internal (moving) parts of the engine need to be lubricated by the engine oil. Inadequate lubrication will cause the parts to wear out faster and eventually lead to engine failure. An oil filter keeps the oil clean and free of debris. If the filter is not replaced on a regular basis, it will get clogged and will not be able to pass oil into the engine.

Oil Change Service

Keep in mind:

  • When the oil is changed you should always replace the oil filter.
  • Replacement oil should always match the required specifications for your vehicle.
  • After your oil has been changed, it’s a good idea to run the vehicle for a few minutes to make sure that there are no leaks.

How it's done:

  • Remove and replace engine oil and filter.
  • Check the condition of all fluids.
  • Perform basic safety inspection.
  • Start the vehicle and check for leaks in the system.

Our recommendation:

  • It is best to follow the maintenance schedule provided by the manufacturer (you can check your schedule in your YourMechanic profile).
  • We recommend replacing the oil and filter every 5,000 miles or four months.
  • Synthetic oil (versus regular) is cost effective. It’s lubrication properties are better and you will not need oil changes as frequently.
  • If you notice any fluids in your driveway, you should get your vehicle inspected immediately.
  • Do not drive your car with low engine oil. It can severely damage the engine.

What are the common symptoms indicating you need an oil change?

  • The amount of time since your last oil change exceeds the recommended miles.
  • Maintenance light is on.

How important is this service?

Regular oil changes are generally considered the most important maintenance service for your car. To avoid severe engine damage, this simple and inexpensive service should be regularly scheduled.
