Oil Change Service
Oil change service on your vehicle will include: draining the old dirty oil from your engine and replacing it with new oil. During your oil change, you also get your oil filter replaced and a free vehicle inspection.
Our mechanics are trained to inspect the general condition of gasoline and diesel-powered vehicles. We use complex testing equipment such as compression testers and engine analyzers.
Performing regular vehicle maintenance increases the life of your vehicle, improves fuel efficiency, and saves you money in the long run. It’s also a good way to prevent unexpected breakdowns.
Performing an auto-diagnostic test can save you money in the long run. If you catch problems before they become major, you can avoid expensive repairs down the road.
Parts & Replacement
While there are many types of auto parts, it’s important to know which to choose. Some parts need to be replaced more often than others, and some parts are more reliable than others.
Oil Changes By Tedious Repairs
Dirty Oil And Its Harmful Effects
If your oil is dirty, it can cause there to be too much friction in the engine, it can cause overheating, and it can also cause permanent engine damage.

How Does Motor Oil Work?
What does motor oil do? Well, motor oil keeps your parts moving, keeps them from rusting, and prevents your engine’s parts from rubbing together. In addition, the oil filter helps to remove accumulated dirt that appears in your motor oil.
How Does Motor Oil Help Prevent Engine Wear?
Another important concept that explains the different grades of oil is “Reserve Alkalinity”. Reserve Alkalinity refers to oil’s ability to resist the formation of acids, which corrode the engine. Better oils retain “reserve alkalinity” better and longer, thus they do their job better and longer. Bad oils quickly become thick, sticky, and sludgy. When reserve alkalinity is depleted, your engine wears down much faster. Quality engine oil means you can drive farther without worrying about oil changes as often.
When Should I Change My Oil?
Tedious Repairs suggest that you change your motor oil every 3,000-5,000 miles- 3,000 for synthetic-blend oils, 5,000 for synthetic, or every 6 months. There is a great debate about when you should get this service done, but we believe 5,000 miles is ideal for several reasons.
The first is your vehicle needs to have inspections done every so often. You do not need to find out about costly surprise major repairs on the side on instate 5, do you? The oil change gives the mechanic a chance to go over everything and make sure we can save a huge headache and tow back to us. Picture your oil change like a doctor’s check-up.
The second reason to get an oil change is to remove sludge, metal, and carbon that brakes apart inside your engine. If the auto technician finds metal shavings while draining your vehicle, you may have some serious issues to deal with. They also may find any oil leaks or red flags while removing the oil fluid.
Some vehicles have advanced computers that can help determine oil quality so check the manufacturer’s manual for further information. If you’re unsure, it’s typically safe to change oil at the same 3-5000 mile interval for almost all consumer vehicles (unless otherwise noted by the manufacturer). You can be sure it’s time to change the oil if it’s become dirty sludgy oil thick with debris, which can happen quickly under harsh conditions like off-roading or mud bogging.
