Oil Change and Service
PREVENTATIVE VEHICLE MAINTENANCE
YOUR CAR’S FLUID CONDITION IS CRITICAL
With modern vehicle design, fluid condition is critical. Customers save money by having these fluids regularly serviced by professional technicians. If your fluids are neglected, further damage can and will result and can cost you thousands of dollars to repair. For example, did you know that modern transmissions can cost ten-thousand dollars or more to replace? If the fluid for the transmission is allowed to degrade, damage results. Also, engine oil is not only lubricating internal components, but is also utilized for variable valve timing actuators. These actuators become damaged and will fail when engine oil breaks down into a sludge. The benefits of regular fluid maintenance are numerous, with peace-of-mind and vehicle safety at the top of the list.
THE RIGHT OIL FOR YOUR VEHICLE
Adherence to fluid specifications is critical. If the wrong fluid is used in an application, damage could result. Vehicle manufactures, such as Volkswagen and BMW, require their synthetic engine oil adhere to fluid specs set forth by engineers in laboratories. Also, it’s common for engine to use a very thin engine oil to accommodate extremely tight crankshaft clearances. Most new Subarus use a 0W-20 synthetic. Diesel engines also take a special oil, and European diesels, such as a Mercedes Sprinter with Blutec, the Audi and Volkswagen TDI, or the BMW d series, all require special motor oils.

TRUST, VALUE, AND CONFIDENCE
"As a single woman, it had been difficult to find a mechanic who 1) didn’t overcharge me or 2) treat me as a ditz who doesn’t know anything about cars. Zach does neither. He always tells me the way it is, explaining what I don’t understand and giving me all the information I need to make my own choice about my car repairs. I totally trust him. He’s a gem!"
“I have lived in the Valley for ten years and I finally have a trustworthy master level technician to work on my cars. Zach is professional and completely trustworthy. You can’t go wrong when taking your car to get worked on here.”
“Well a last minute call to this business and they delivered on their promise. The prices were a bit “Bay Area”, but in this case it was worth it. They are knowledgeable and competent, I liked dealing with them. They also help people in the community to buy and sell their cars. Thanks Ashland Automotive.”
