The Importance of a Regular Oil Change

Are you watching your miles go up and up? Has it been 3,000 miles since you last changed or oil? Has it been more than 5,000 miles? Having your oil changed is one of the least expensive auto maintenance services your car needs. It also plays a critical role to your car’s performance.

Why Do I Need It
Oil is important for your vehicle because it keeps the engine components working efficiently. Oil helps to pull the heat away from the combustion chamber. It also helps to reduce the accumulation of varnish and carbon from collecting on the engine. Even if you use a high quality oil, it still needs regular changing when the consistency changes from a liquid to a sludge.

Oil Change For Your Car
How often should I get an oil change? What type of oil should I use? This depends on the make and model of your car in addition to how often drive. Paying attention to your odometer is key. You may reference your owner’s manual for recommendations as to the type of oil to use for your car and how often your car needs an oil change. A general rule is that you should be changing your oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. It’s important to keep a log of your mileage between oil changes.

Plan Ahead
Don’t put off an oil change. Instead plan ahead if you are going to change the oil yourself or bring it in to a professional service. The longer you wait to have your oil change when you are already past-due, the worse the oil will get, and it could potentially clog your engine. Having your oil changed is worth the time and minimal cost of maintenance.

I recently brought my car in to have the broken passenger window replaced. The guys at Frank’s were very professional and the prices were good compared to other places. I’d recommend to anyone. Thanks guys!

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!

I am extremely happy with the service I received from Frank's Auto Glass Repair. The replacement took a few hours because of the business' excellent service that it is first come first served. I have nothing but good things to say about this business. I pray I do not need another one anytime soon but I will definitely refer family and friends for premier services!
