CHATTANOOGA OIL CHANGES
Driving around with dirty oil- or not enough oil can shorten the life span of your vehicle severely. Over time, repeated heating and cooling as well as accumulation of particles can make existing oil thicker. Not only can this decrease its ability to flow, leaving harmful deposits in your engine and causes extensive damage. We are trained to understand how your vehicle uses oil, and how to monitor its’ oil life. Choosing the appropriate oil is key to engine maintenance as each contains a variety of characteristics that affect your vehicle’s performance such as the level of engine protection.
