OIL CHANGES

Oil Changes in Humble TX

Oil changes are important because the friction and high heat inside of your motor causes the viscocity of your oil to break down. Viscocity is the thickness of the oil and various vehicles and engines require different viscocities of oil.

As technology has been advancing, manufacturers have been using thinner lubricants such as:

  • 10w-30
  • 5w-30
  • 5w-20
  • 0w-20
  • 5w-40

This can be confusing and there are many reasons for this: EPA Regulations, more power, finer tuning, and better gas mileage. Too heavy of an oil on cold start up may cause certain parts of your engine to starve for oil. All this will add up and cause problems down the road if you are using the wrong oil for your diesel or gas engine.

Oil Change Mechanic

We incorporate a few basic checks along with the oil changes at Specialized Truck and Auto Service. They include but are not limited to the following:

  • Change oil and oil filter
  • Check and top all fluids
  • Check air filter
  • Adjust air in tires
  • Reset maintenance indicator

Most vehicles using conventional motor oil should be changed between 3,000 – 5,000 miles.

We utilize the BG oil change service package which includes an additive to help clean the engine before the old oil is removed and a motor oil additive that goes in with the new oil. These BG chemicals help remove any old deposits and gives the new oil a boost for greater longevity.

Our technicians at Specialized Truck and Auto Service know the required capacity and fluid types for your specific vehicles. Please call us for your oil changes for all your vehicles. 281-883-8362.
