Don’t Skip Oil Change Service
The engine is the heart of your vehicle. It relies on motor oil to properly lubricate the many moving parts. Fresh oil reduces friction, lessens wear, removes sludge, and cools engine components, leading to improved performance and vehicle longevity. As time goes by, oil becomes contaminated with dirt and debris, lessening performance. Skipping oil change service decreases lubrication, and failure can occur, landing you in an engine repair shop. That’s why routine oil change service at My Mechanic is so essential. Our technicians will replace the oil and oil filter during your oil change and check the battery, fluid levels, and tire pressures. Our pros will also check for other faults and let you know if we find anything out of the ordinary. Not sure if your car takes synthetic blend oil or fully synthetic oil? It’s okay. Our mechanics know your vehicle needs, whether you drive a foreign or domestic car. We’re located in Pottsville, PA, and offer a full menu of auto services for your convenience.

Signs You’re Due for An Oil Change
Most manufacturers recommend oil change intervals every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. It’s best to follow your manufacturer’s recommended schedule for optimal performance. However, our mechanics advise there are signs that it’s time for an oil change at My Mechanic. The most obvious indicator is a low-level warning light on your dash. This is not to be confused with a check engine light which, if illuminated, signals the need for check engine light diagnostics, not an oil change. Fresh motor oil is transparent and amber in color, so if you notice dark or dirty oil or a low oil level on the dipstick, it’s time to call us. Then there’s the dreaded grinding or ticking sound when the engine runs, meaning the oil level is too low to protect your engine. Immediate attention should also be given to blue smoke, or an oil leak, as this can lead to catastrophic engine failure. Regardless of the symptoms, our team is ready to help with an oil change or any other auto repair service you need.
