Your vehicle's engine is a powerful and complex piece of engineering, containing multiple metal parts that move very quickly. Engine oil is needed to keep these parts lubricated, but it doesn't last forever. Over time, the oil will begin to break down and will need to be replaced. When that happens, come to Stephen Wade Auto Center, serving Santa Clara, Hurricane, and Cedar City! We will be glad to perform an oil change on your vehicle; learn more here!
Stephen Wade Auto Center has some service centers that focus on one specific automaker. However, all of our technicians are capable, and we will gladly perform an oil change no matter what type of vehicle you drive! You will always get top-quality service from Stephen Wade Auto Center, and we look forward to demonstrating this.
Synthetic oil costs more than conventional, but it's also decidedly better. It's refined to have fewer impurities, and it can actually clean your engine as it runs through it. This is thanks in part to the detergent additives in conventional oil. Its even molecular structure allows it to lubricate the engine's moving parts better, and its resistance to heat means that you can go longer between oil changes! This may even make up for the extra cost.
If you drive a diesel vehicle, it requires special oil. Stop by Stephen Wade Auto Center, and we can perform a diesel oil change with the oil your diesel vehicle needs.
Conventional oil is one of the more common types. Made from refined crude oil, it's less expensive than other kinds of oil. However, it does come with its drawbacks. You will have to have oil changes performed every 3,000 miles when you use conventional oil. In addition, conventional oil that begins to break down can leave sludge deposits in the engine.
If you want to get some of the benefits of synthetic oil, but don't want to pay the full price, consider going for a synthetic blend. It's not quite as good as full-synthetic, but it still has benefits over conventional oil.
