Express Oil Changes in Summerside

There is no appointment needed for Express Oil Changes.

Oil and Filter Changes

Express Oil Changes  are the most important and one of the quickest and least expensive car maintenance services available.  They ensure that the oil in your engine is doing it’s job of lubricating the engine so you don’t have metal rubbing on metal causing premature wear. At Upcycle’s we believe most cars, if taken care of properly, should take you 200,000 miles or more. Frequent oil changes are key to maximizing your investment in your car.

Engine Oil Function

Oil works by keeping all of the metal parts in your engine lubricated so they can move freely. In addition, oil catches the dirt, acids and carbon particles that naturally occur every time you drive your car. When oil gets dirty it begins to act like sandpaper, roughing up and wearing down weak points in the engine. As it gets dirtier the oil can’t hold the byproducts in suspension and they start to build up at the same weak points, degrading the seals in your engine and plugging oil passageways.

How Often Should I come for an Oil Change?

At Upcycle’s Auto Repair Shop, we know the importance of regular oil changes from years of working on cars and from seeing the engine damage caused by dirty oil, oil sludge, and low oil levels. This is why we generally recommend having your oil changed every 3 months or 3,000 – 5000 miles. As driving style and type of oil can affect oil change intervals, we recommend discussing what is appropriate for your vehicle with our service advisors.

Does it Matter Which Type of Oil I Use?

Motor oil has changed a lot in the past ten years. Gone are the days when all you needed to know was if your car takes 10w-30 or 10W-40 oil. You now have 3 options for most motor oils – Conventional Petroleum, Synthetic Blend and Full Synthetic. As engines become more complicated, engine oils are becoming much more specialized by vehicle. Some car manufacturers may even void your warranty if you don’t use an oil that meets their specifications. We always comply with all manufacturer guidelines to keep your warranty intact.

Upcycle uses software support that identifies the correct filter and the type of oil and amount of oil according to your car’s VIN number. As Upcycle offers express oil changes right here in Summerside, and we maintain a large stock of filter models and different types of oil, which are supplied to us by top tier suppliers.

Upcycle’s main objective is to serve our customers with agility, high quality, and fair price. As a courtesy, the Upcycle team will check the fluid levels, signal lamps, and windshield wipers.
