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.

Honda Accord L4-1.5L Turbo - Oil Change - San Francisco, California
Lavell is an incredibly professional and skilled mechanic. I had a bad experience with my first service appointment from YourMechanic but Lavell helped fix the damage that was done to my vehicle and restored my faith in this company. He is the primary reason I chose to use YourMechanic again for my oil change 6 months later instead of using another service. Cannot recommend enough!
Lexus ES350 - Oil Change - San Francisco, California
YourMechanic provided the best technician to service my Lexus. It's difficult to find a mechanic you can trust. But Lavelle seemed to know everything about my car and was extremely patient as he assisted in resolving issues with my service contract over the phone with customer support. He was very professional and went above and beyond to aaccommodate my situation. I'll be requesting Lavelle from now on.
