It is recommended that you change your oil every 3 months or 3,000 miles to help keep your car running at peak performance, to get a better mileage out of your car and to ensure it drives properly.

At Poudre Auto Repair we offer both conventional and synthetic oil.

Conventional oil, the most commonly used, mainly because of cost. Conventional oil is bascially a byproduct of the crude oil refining process and it degrades over time, especially when exposed to high levels of heat, due its less complex make-up. Synthetic oil, although a larger investment, is developed from chemical compounds making it resistant to heat and viscosity breakdown. The entire structure is different than its natural counterpart, making it a far cleaner and more stable product than conventional oil.   Older vehicles are generally better suited to use conventional oils due to the engine seals, new cars which experience normal day-to-day use with its short journeys, traffic jams, extreme temperature changes, etc, can benefit from the extra protection afforded by synthetics, but it is always safest to refer to the manufacturer's recommendations before making any changes.

In addition to changing the oil in your vehicle, our expert technicians can take care of your fuel filters, lube, radiator, antifreeze, fuel injector cleaning and leaks. We will also give you a complimentary vehicle inspection when you come in for your oil change so you can stay in tuned with your vehicle's overall health.
