Book an Oil & Filter Change for Your Car
Making sure that your car’s oil gets changed regularly is key to keeping a car’s engine running healthily for as long as possible. Oil keeps the moving components within the engine moving with as little resistance as possible, but needs to be treated as a perishable, meaning that it needs to be replaced routinely to make sure that you’re still getting the best performance possible.
Our expert technicians are on hand to give you advice and help you identify the most suitable oil for your vehicle in line with your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations.

Why does oil need to be replaced?
Over time oil can lose its effectiveness in a number of ways, so it’s important to make sure that the oil in your car’s system is healthy and not causing any damage to vital components.
Through regular usage oil can thin and lose its heat absorbing properties, potentially causing damage internally as the engine attempts to run normally while meeting more resistance. For other cars oil can also be lost either through a leak or being ‘burned off’. This is particularly noticeable with a number of cars that have a wankel rotary engine; because of the increased amount of movement more oil is required to keep the system moving efficiently.
Key FactThe correct oil helps to increase engine life, aid fuel efficiency and maximises the power and performance of your vehicle. The oil filter eliminates impurities suspended in the oil.
