Oil Change Service

Don’t wait until it’s too late to change your oil.


Oil is the lifeblood of your engine. Without regular oil changes and level checks, you can do significant damage to your engine. Seriously. Cars that get regular oil changes run longer and more efficiently.

Oil keeps all of the rotating parts in your engine properly lubricated and running smoothly. It maintains a thin barrier between all of the moving parts, reducing friction and wear. Proper oil helps your engine run more efficiently. It also helps keep engine temperatures down. Pretty cool, right?

Changing your oil doesn’t have to be an inconvenience. With multiple Carlock Automotive locations, we’re here to make your next oil change affordable, quick and convenient.

Oil Frequently Asked Questions:

A: There is no hard and fast answer to this question. A good general rule of thumb is to follow the oil change interval outlined by your vehicle manufacturer in the owner’s manual. Certain variables, however, may necessitate more frequent oil changes. Factors that increase your recommended oil change frequency include:

  • Driving in environments with big seasonal temperature changes
  • Regularly driving in stop and go conditions
  • Frequent travel in dirty or dusty environments
  • Driving regularly on steep terrain
  • Increased workload on your vehicle including regular towing, plowing or driving under other high-load condition

A: No one knows your car better than the manufacturer who built it. Well before your car was built, engineers conducted comprehensive engineering and durability testing. That said, the best place to research the recommended oil for your car is your owner’s manual. If for some reason you no longer have your manual, don’t worry. Just give us a call and we can get you squared away with all of your oil needs.

A: Regular, often referred to as standard or mineral oil, is derived from crude oil. It comes directly from the earth and is refined for use in internal combustion engines. Synthetic oil is designed at the molecular level to remove impurities, optimize oil for the specific demands of modern engines and deliver greater lubrication. When put head to head, synthetic oil wins every time. Synthetic oil provides increased lubrication, delivers greater performance across a range of temperatures and helps reduce engine buildup of engine sludge. Although synthetic oil comes at an increased cost, it often reduces the oil change interval.
