oil change and maintenance

A big part of being a responsible driver is so much more than just following the rules of the road; it is also making sure your vehicle is well-maintained at all times. This means making sure your tires are properly inflated, your brakes are in good working order, and most importantly of all, it means that your car is up to date on your preventative maintenance in oil changes. When the time does come for an oil change in Townsend, DE, don’t trust the folks at some quickie lube shop or overspend at the dealership; bring your car to the oil change experts at Fred Drake Automotive.

Oil Change Townsend DE

When the time does come for an oil change in Townsend, DE, which is about every 4,000 miles in most vehicles, what does our team actually do with your car? We completely and totally drain the oil from your car’s engine, and remove your worn oil filter. We then replace the oil filter with a brand new one – always a good thing; the oil filter keeps gunk from mixing with your oil – and we replace the drained oil with a fresh batch. Depending on your vehicle’s needs, this oil will be synthetic, semi-synthetic, or conventional oil. When your engine runs, the heat and friction created will wear down the oil in your engine, and oil that is too worn will not be able to prevent your engine from damaging itself. So when the time does come for an oil change in Townsend, DE, trust the experts at Fred Drake Automotive to do the job right.

While the oil change is the most important maintenance you can have performed, it is far from the only thing we do here at Fred Drake Automotive. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to find a single part of your vehicle our staff can’t repair or maintain! We even perform the all-important 30/60/90k mile services every car will eventually need, but unfortunately, most people seem to think only the dealership does this. Not so! Bring your car to Fred Drake Automotive and let us help with all your preventative maintenance.
