Importance of Oil Changes Highlighted In New Video from Car Care Council

Importance of Oil Changes Highlighted In New Video from Car Care Council

As part of its efforts to educate motorists about the importance of preventative vehicle maintenance, the Car Care Council has released a new video titled, "It's Time for an Oil Change."

Produced in conjunction with AutoNetTV Media (ANTV), the new video discusses the why, when and where to have an oil change performed, including:

  • Why - Oil lubricates the moving parts of the engine and changing the oil keeps the engine clean.
  • When - The video suggests checking the vehicle's owner's manual for recommended oil change intervals.
  • Where - An oil change performed by a professional technician at an independent repair shop is a quick and low cost vehicle service.

"Performing oil changes at the routine intervals outlined in the owner's manual is one of the least expensive, yet effective, ways to keep an engine running at peak performance and extend the life of the vehicle," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Our new video provides useful information to help car owners understand the importance of regular oil changes."

The new video can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrbM89aiGhE&t=8s. "It's Time for an Oil Change" is also available in the ANTV digital management system for use by repair shops to share with their customers.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Was driving from NY to LA when my Bus started dying on the highway. Lookup the nearest VW mechanic and come here. Walt is great! He took a look at my Bus, even though it was late and he was busy-and told me the last guy who rebuilt the engine screwed up. I trusted Walt to rebuild the engine, and he did it cheaper and quicker than the first mechanic, and much better! I now have 10-15mph higher top speed and it runs a lot smoother. Driving from MO to LA I went from losing 1qt/1000 miles to losing no oil! Superb job, honest guy, nobody knows more about air-cooled VWs than he.

My daughter, a MU student, and her used 2007 high mileage Audi A4 broke down, the car was towed to Walt's. Walt called me the next day and went over his diagnostics and recommendations. He only recommended what needed to be done and did not recommend useless/costly repairs. When the car was complete, he called me with the final bill which was totally reasonable. He was timely and great to work with! I highly recommend this repair shop, it is so hard to find honest and qualified technicians and mechanics these days and Walt is truly one of the best I have ever worked with. I will definitely be back, thank you so much!

I have an old (2001) high mileage (155k+) VW Golf, and I only take it to Walt's. The staff is friendly, honest, fair, and fairly quick with repairs. They give you options and explain the pros and cons of optional repairs. They keep my old Golf running well, with fair costs for repairs. I would (and have) recommended to anyone with a VW or similar German car.

I had my MINI Cooper serviced here. These guys are great. They showed me everything about my car (as I know nothing about cars). The Baron MINI in Kansas City told me I needed new front and back brakes and rotors. After showing me how much brake pad I had left on the back brakes, the guy at Walt's said "that's nuts and these should last at least another year". They also did quality work and cost a couple hundred bucks less! I am very pleased!

I would not take my car anywhere else. They are honest, friendly and work with you to make the best/most cost effective repair solutions.

Great people and service. They went above and beyond in order to help me resolve a problem with my 2011 Audi S5. Definitely plan on going back.
