A Service that Saves Time and Money

Oil is the lifeblood of vehicle engines. The lubricant reduces friction between the moving metal parts, lessens wear and tear, provides lubrication, cools certain parts, and forms a seal between the pistons, cylinder walls, and rings. Just like blood, however, it needs to be cleaned for it to perform properly. This is where our technicians can help.

We have professional oil changers in Tauranga who are always on-hand to help drivers maintain their vehicles. We provide quick, hassle-free oil change services that’ll have you back on the road in to time at all.

When Not to Keep it Flowing

Routine oil change is one of the simplest and most effective ways to protect your car’s engine, but it is also one of the most neglected maintenance tasks. Doing this regularly helps keep your car running for a long time.

If you notice some of the following signs, it may be high time to take your vehicle into our shop for a quick oil change:

  • Oil is Black and Gritty. The original colour of engine oil is usually honey brown, but could differ depending on your engine (for diesel, it might have a tinge of green). If, however, it is black, gritty, and far from the original shade, it’s time to change it out. The blackness is likely caused by too much gunk and other particles running throughout the engine.
  • Engine is Louder than Usual. Engines gradually eat up lubricants. Instead of just topping it off, it’s best to change the oil so as not to mix the old, gunky lubricant with the fresh one. That way, you get more miles for the new oil.
  • Oil Level Drops. Egines gradually eat up lubricants. Instead of just topping it off, it's best to change the oil so as not to mix the old, gunky lubricant with the fresh one. That way, you get more miles for thenew oil.
  • ‘Check Engine’/Oil Light Comes On. Depending on your vehicle, the dashboard might have an oil gauge on its own, but if not, the ‘check engine’ light will come on if the engine senses it’s time for an oil change.
  • You Can’t Remember Your Last Oil Change. If you cannot remember the last time you took your car in for an oil change, it’s probably due for another one. Keep a schedule and stick to it as best as you can.
