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.

Mazda 3 L4-2.5L - Oil Change - Redwood City, California
I had an awesome experience with Jason servicing my 2014 Mazda 3. Jason made sure to check that I really needed all the services I requested (oil change, tire rotation, rear brakes). Turns out I only needed the oil change, and he saved me ~$300. He's a stand-up guy who will give it to you straight, and make sure you're taken care-of.

John was great! he showed up on time and was very careful with the car. He also showed me around my car, what matters and what will need service eventually
Acura RDX - Oil Change - Redwood City, California
I booked a number of services for my wife's car including a brake pad replacement since she had complained about squealing brakes. Upon arriving I explained the situation to Jon about the brakes. He did a quick inspection for me and instead of changing my brakes because I booked the service, he recommended not changing the brakes because they still had over 80% life left. He was honest and clearly explained what he did and saved me a few hundred bucks. The rest of the service went great and he cleaned up after himself. All his documenation was well put together. I will definitely use John in the future!
