The simple oil change is one of the easiest and least expensive car services you can have performed on your vehicle and also one of the most important.

What Happens When You Ditch The Oil Change?

Your change oil light comes on when you're busy driving around West Orange, Parsippany, or beyond. What should you do? While an oil change isn't something that needs to be done immediately, it should most definitely not be forgotten. Why? Your engine's oil is the lifeblood of the engine. It not only lubricates the parts of the engine, but it also cools and cleans the engine as you drive. Over time, the oil will breakdown and need to be changed. If you don't change it on time, you will have a much larger and more expensive engine repair to worry about.
