At first glance, synthetic oil changes simply seem more expensive, as they can typically run $20 to $30 more than a conventional oil change. In the long run, though, they can actually save you money!
By using synthetic oil, you can help improve your Toyota's fuel economy by half a mile per gallon of gasoline, which definitely adds up over time. A vehicle that normally achieves a base 20 MPG can save you up to $36 after 10,000 miles (that is, of course, assuming gas costs $3.00/gallon). With that extra money in your pocket, you can treat your Toyota to a synthetic oil change for no extra cost!
By equipping your Toyota with our low-viscosity 5W-20 oil, you can expect better engine performance, improved fuel economy and reduced engine deposits. Thanks to the uniform lubrication and reduced friction that our specially crafted synthetic oil offers, your engine will be better protected, will operate better in extreme conditions and will need oil changes less frequently.
If you see oil stains on your garage floor or in your driveway, you might have an oil leak. These oil leaks can happen when a car gets older, as the gaskets and seals begin to break down oil can be forced through cracks or gaps in these seals. A small leak can quickly become a large problem and even damage the engine due to low oil pressure. If you're suspicious that you may have an oil leak, bring your car in today and let one of our certified technicians diagnose the source and provide you with the best options for repairing it!
Low oil pressure or low oil level can be a major problem for your car's engine, as it needs to have the correct amount of oil to stay properly lubricated. (Increased friction can cause permanent engine damage.) Low oil pressure can be caused by the oil level being too low or by a malfunction in the oil pump or engine itself. If your dashboard oil light comes on after starting the engine — and stays on — or if it comes on while the engine is running, this could mean your car needs immediate attention.
