Oil Service vs Oil Change? You probably already know that basic car maintenance starts with changing the engine oil at the correct intervals. But did you know that using the correct, quality products and having a Quality Automotive Servicing mechanic to inspect the vehicle for any further maintenance issues may be even more important? We call this a ServicePlus oil service which is more than just any oil change.

At Quality Automotive Servicing in Truckee your car, truck or SUV receives a full oil service. Let’s look at why that is important. While changing your oil is imperative to the longevity of your 4WD, the most important part of an oil service is the comprehesive vehicle inspection. A lot can happen under the hood between oil changes and the QAS “Red Check Inspection” will give you the information to make smart decisions about preventative maintenance and repairs that will keep you and your vehicle on the road for years to come. This valuable digital inspection will inform you about any immediate needs of the vehicle and ensure that the vehicle is in safe condition for you and your family. With the longer intervals between oil changes, this vehicle inspection by a highly trained mechanic can mean the difference between driving your car for years to come with few problems or having to invest thousands in unexpected repairs.

A "Quality" Oil Service Includes

  • A highly trained, experienced, ASE certified master technician
  • Only the highest quality of fluids and filters specific to your make/model
  • 30 point digital inspection and vehicle report sent via text directly to you
  • A personal service advisor to walk you through the report
  • Three levels of oil service (3/6 Maintenance) to choose from: 1. Basic Service, 2. Intermediate Service & 3. Major Mileage Service

Follow the Recommendations for Severe Driving Conditions: When it comes to oil services, Truckee and Lake Tahoe mountain vehicles should always follow the manufacturer's recommendations for “severe driving conditions”. At Quality Automotive Servicing we’ve simplified this for our customers with three service options. We recommend one of these services every 6 months: 1. Basic Service 2. Intermediate Service, and 3. Major Mileage Service.

Our Basic Oil Service is includes premium oil and filter, tire rotation if needed, and our complimentary inspection which as explained is possibly the most valuable portion of the service. The next level, Intermediate Service, takes your basic service to the next level by also including a performance-enhancing oil additive designed to prevent oxidation and sludge formation, and improve efficiency. This has proven to be excellent protection for mountain-driven vehicles and necessary for high mileage engines. Also added is a fuel system treatment formulated to dissolve fuel system deposits from fuel injectors, intake ports, intake valves and combustion chambers. This is proven to increase gas mileage, boost performance and reduce exhaust emissions (so you are also doing your part to help the environment). With this intermediate service, the engine air filter will also be replaced which is important for vehicles that drive the dusty mountain roads in Truckee and Lake Tahoe. By alternating between these two services you will notice a great improvement in your vehicle performance and add years onto your vehicle life.

The highest level of oil service option is the Major Mileage Service which is equal and above the service you would receive at the dealership. Quality Automotive Servicing expert mechanics and service advisors follow the same guidelines as the manufacturers. Not only will you be up-to-date with your vehicle maintenance, you will receive the personal service of a local shop that really has your best interest in mind; to “go the distance” with you and your car and keep you on the road for years to come. There is no need to brave the roads and traffic and deal with a person you don’t know off mountain.
