Oil Change in Nanaimo

The key to good vehicle maintenance starts with the oil change.  It’s essential for Nanaimo auto owners to remember there is no exception that would make it OK to extend an interval. These intervals already assume “best case” conditions for a safe margin of error. However, you may live or drive in Nanaimo conditions that are harsher than average. Your owner’s manual may have a modified schedule for “severe service.” Severe Service includes things like extreme BC temperatures, towing, hauling heavy loads around Nanaimo, short trips, stop-and-go expressway conditions, etc.

As responsible Nanaimo motorists, we know we need to take care of our cars, but it just seems really hard to remember to do it. We generally accept that many things in life require regular maintenance, but just may have not applied it to our vehicles.

Regular Maintenance Essential

For example, we water and mow the lawn every week. And weed the flower beds and rake the leaves. We go to the dentist twice a year, take our clothes to the dry cleaner. Flu shots. Taking the kids for a checkup before school starts. People really are maintenance minded. Nanaimo motorists just need to learn to apply that mindset to cars. I mean, if you never brush your teeth or go to the dentist, you’ll become painfully aware of your neglect when you get a big cavity. Once the damage is done, we learn our lesson and start to take better care of things.

Unfortunately, Nanaimo drivers too often learn the hard automotive lesson when they have to bring their vehicle to their Nanaimo auto center on a tow truck. So many times, a little routine maintenance would have prevented a breakdown.
