Choosing the Right Oil for Your Truck
Choosing the right oil for your truck is essential in maintaining its performance and prolonging its lifespan. With so many options available, including mineral and synthetic oils, it can be challenging to know which one to choose. Our team can help you select the best oil for your truck based on its make, model, and engine type. We follow the manufacturer's recommendations and use top-quality oils that meet or exceed industry OEM standards.
Our Comprehensive Oil & Fluid Service
We offer a comprehensive oil and fluid service that will prepare your truck for thousands of miles to come. Our service includes an oil change, fluid fill or flush for your transmission, differential, transfer case, gears, and coolant system, belt, hose, and oil filter replacements as needed, and a thorough inspection of lubricated parts.
We recommend oil changes every 5,000 to 15,000 miles, depending on the make and model of your truck, as well as your driving conditions and habits. Regularly replacing your oil filter, typically every 25,000 miles or more depending on driving conditions and the quality of the filter, ensures your engine remains clean and well-lubricated.
Fluid flushes are also an essential part of our oil and fluid service. We recommend getting a fluid flush every 30,000 to 60,000 miles for your differential, gears, coolant/antifreeze, transfer case, and transmission. Flushing these fluids removes any accumulated contaminants, which can help unlock more horsepower in your engine while prolonging the lifespan of lubricated components.
