Subaru Impreza - Oil Change - Palo Alto, California
I love that Honorio communicates beforehand if he is unable to arrive by the scheduled time. It was because he had a flat tire and the tire shop only opened at 9am - not his fault! As usual, great service from him and I'll continue to use his services.
Chevrolet HHR - Oil Change - Palo Alto, California
Appointment went as smooth as they always do with him. We appreciate how kind and informative he is with every visit. The most honest mechanic we've ever interacted with, which is starting to show given how far out we have to book him now!

Ford Crown Victoria - Oil Change - Palo Alto, California
I had an oil change, filter change, and diagnostic done for my car, and it went decently well. The problems that occurred were understandable, and though they did affect my opinion of the experience, I would probably use the service again if I do have enough time and the price is right. While Whitney was late to the appointment, he made sure to contact me by telephone in order to make sure I knew what his ETA was and why he was late. I wasn't pressed for time so it didn't matter to me that he was late, but I can see how this would negatively affect someone's plans. Outside of that, there was some problem with my address as well, but he was still able to find me eventually. I'm glad that he came to the appointment at least, and though there was a problem with the electronic app when he tried to remove the oil filter, he honored the original price quote and did the work that I had requested for the same price. Because of these few things, I felt that the experience itself could have gone better, but the work was done and he properly diagnosed other problems with my vehicle. I had already gotten some information about my car from another place when I bought it, so it improved my opinion of his trustworthiness as a mechanic when he diagnosed the same things. Having a second quote was helpful, and knowing that someone who has already taken a look at the car would be able to service it again is helpful. Overall, I think Whitney knows what he's doing as a mechanic, and maybe he just had an off day when it comes to scheduling and waking up/being on time. Thanks Whitney, for doing the oil change and filter change for me through yourmechanic.

Overall I'm satisfied with the service. I think the only issue I had was that Jason mentioned that he didnt have all the parts to do my oil change. He had mentioned that there was some schedule mix up and that he was not even supposed to be there.

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.
