Keegan Auto offers timely Oil Change services at competitive rates.
A car or truck Oil Change entails replacing the oil and oil filter in your vehicle’s crankcase. Motor oil has a limited lifespan and should be changed regularly according to the maintenance schedule in your vehicle’s Owner’s Manual. The timeline for Oil Changes can be determined by mileage or months, and each make and model is different. When Keegan Auto conducts an Oil Change for you, we will place a sticker inside your windshield that lists the mileage and date (whichever comes first) that we recommend you return for your subsequent service.
VARIOUS TYPES OF OIL CHANGES AND DO I KNOW WHICH MY VEHICLE NEEDS?
There are four general Oil Change types:
FULL SYNTHETIC OIL CHANGE
A Full Synthetic Oil Change is ideal for vehicles that require high performance and lubrication because it provides higher viscosity levels, resistance to thermal breakdown and oxidation, and helps prevent the build-up of oil sludge. A Full Synthetic Oil Change is usually preferred if you live in a climate with super cold winters or very hot summers, or use your vehicle for towing or hauling. However, due to its higher cost, we recommend consulting our technicians to determine whether a Full Synthetic Oil Change is the right oil for your car.
SYNTHETIC BLEND OIL CHANGE
A Synthetic Blend Oil Change is a mixture of Full Synthetic and Conventional Motor Oil, so it offers many of the perks of Full Synthetic, but at a significantly lower cost. It’s increasingly popular among drivers who want the protection and performance of Full Synthetic Motor Oil, but also the option to switch between Conventional and Full Synthetic.
CONVENTIONAL OIL CHANGE
A Conventional Oil Change is the most common type of oil change and is most-used for light-duty, late-model cars with a simple engine design. Great for family vehicles, commuter vehicles, and every-day drivers.
HIGH MILEAGE OIL CHANGE
A High-Mileage Oil Change is specifically for vehicles over 75,000 miles because it reduces oil consumption, minimizes leaks and seepages, and reduces smoke emissions in older vehicles.
