Oil Filter Related Repair Advice

  • Manufacturers differ in their recommended guidelines for when engine oil and oil filters should be changed. As a general rule, however, engine oil should be changed every 3,000 miles to keep the engine healthy and to prolong its life.
  • We recommend using a high-quality engine oil filter. Cheap filters wear more quickly and may not properly keep contaminants out of the engine.
  • We recommend replacing the drain plug gasket along with the oil and oil filter
