When I first moved to Fox Lake almost 2 years ago, I thought it was a blessing that I found this place. I never trust mechanics, they like to rip people off, especially women. The people who originally owned this place were wonderful. They never tried to sell me anything I didn't need. Well it must have recently changed ownership. I don't like the new people that work here. I went in for a simple oil change and got sucked into doing a coolant flush. The guy made it sound very important and urgent, like if I didn't get it done my car would break down the next day. Little did I know, that was completely unnecessary. He only charged me $60 for it instead of $120, but that doesn't matter. It didn't need to be done at all and that was a extra money that I really didn't have to spend. I will never return to this place again.
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.
