Hosmer's Garage
On a day trip to Ellensburg from the west coast, I discovered serious brake issues with my car as I came into town. As it was a Saturday, many of garages were closed, and a few that I did get in to see did not have the parts in stock. When we phoned Hosmers, they also did not have the parts , but when we told them the urgency of our situation, they suggested that they would go and purchase it from a secondary retailer. They then ended up staying 4 HOURS over their usual shop hours to complete the job in order to get me home safely and in time for my appointment the next morning. Their rates were beyond reasonable and their customer service outstanding. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Dave is an awesome guy. Does just as good of work as any other shop I've been to for about a third of the price. Dave's will be helping me take care of my civic for a long time.
Tips & Advices
You should change your oil filter whenever you change your oil, that is, approximately every 7,500 miles.
A oil filter is a device that helps remove contaminants from motor oil as it passes through the engine. A pump pushed the oil through the filter where it is strained and goes back to the engine.
High-mileage oil contains special conditioners that are said to help prevent gaskets from drying out and thus preventing leaks. This can be beneficial to engines with many miles on them.
Synthetic oil costs more than conventional oil, but the price is offset by the need for less frequent oil changes due to the oil’s durability.
Tools needed to change your own oil include jack stands or ramps, a wrench, an oil filter wrench, an oil drip pan, funnel, replacement oil filter, and replacement oil.
