Time for an Oil and Filter Change?
A regular schedule of oil and filter changes is one of the simplest things you can do to keep your car in good condition. The conventional wisdom of an oil change every 5,000 km has changed somewhat with greater concern for the environment and advances in both engine design and engine oil formulation.
Today’s engines can be maintained with oil changes at longer intervals, up to 8,000 km by utilizing full synthetic oil, and depending on the make and model of your vehicle and the kind of driving you do. For stop-and-start highway driving, for instance, or cold weather extremes, you might need more frequent oil changes to protect your engine. Drive in to any Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centres location and ask our trained mechanics about the right type of oil and an appropriate schedule for your vehicle’s oil change.
