Grease Monkey
Randy and Mark are my HEROES !!My elderly mother spends 6 months in Hagerstown, MD during the summer - and 6 months in south Florida with me during the winter. For the record - I always have her car serviced at Grease Monkey before she leaves and as soon as she gets back - but - they just went way above and beyond their job descriptions today !! Mother called me this morning to say the air conditioner in her car quit working - so I immediately called Randy and asked him if he could check it out since she doesn't live far from the shop. To make a long story short - Mark drove over to her house and found the air conditioner was working fine - unfortunately, she was pushing buttons in the wrong order to turn it off and on :-( Thankfully, Mark wrote the directions on a sticky and taped them to the dash - along with his personal cell phone number and told her to feel free to call him if she has any future problems ! These guys are awesome - don't know what I'd do with out them !!
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.
