  • How does the age of your vehicle affect what it needs from oil related services?
  • 3k miles or 5k miles between oil changes?
  • Information about motor oil acidity.
  • What common repairs or services may be offered to you even if you’re solely taking your car to a shop for an oil change?
  • 1993 Jeep Cherokee: My vehicle is struggling to shift out of 1st gear. I’ve had issues with low transmission fluid – where should I go from here?
  • 1990 Toyota Camry: My auto repair shop is insisting that I have an oil leak, however I’ve yet to see any oil on my driveway. Is it possible that the temperature is affecting the leak?
  • 2008 Honda Odyssey: What symptoms would I experience if my real alignment is out?
  • 2008 GMC Sierra: My vehicle is telling me that the 4 wheel drive is engaged – however it is not. Is there a switch issue here?
