You are probably aware of the fact that your engine is the most valuable part of your car. Take proper care of your engine, and you will go a long way to preserving your vehicle for many years. Regular oil and filter changes are among the best ways to extend the life of your engine. Whether your car, truck or RV needs conventional, high mileage, synthetic blend or full synthetic motor oil, our professional technicians are ready to check, change, inspect, flush and fill essential systems and components on your ride.
The Benefits of a Lube, Oil and Filters Changes
Your vehicle is full of sensitive component parts that are put under considerable stress when you are driving. Oil, lube and filters help to relieve this stress, protecting the long-term integrity of the car. Yet, over time, your oil will become completely saturated with toxins and contaminants. This is unavoidable; there is only so long you can go before you will need an oil change. If you do not get your oil changed your engine will be overworked and exposed to excessive heat. Not only will this wear down your engine, it could lead to a catastrophic failure.
The good news is that routine lube, oil and filter changes offer a simple way to protect your vehicle’s engine. The top-rated oil and filter technicians at Elite RV & Car Care have the skills and experience needed to check your oil and inspect your filters, as well as to change your oils, lubes and filters to keep your car running at peak performance.

Selecting Motor Oil: What Do All of Those Numbers Mean?
If you go to pick up motor oil at your local gas station or auto repair shop, you are going to see some numbers listed on the packaging. For example, you may see something referring to the motor oil 5W-30 or 10W-40. If you are not sure exactly what this means, do not worry: There is a lot of confusion over the meaning of motor oil weights and grades. We can address any questions or concerns that you have on this topic.
The key thing you need to know is that your auto manufacturer recommends a specific type of motor oil for your vehicle. The numbers that you see listed on motor oil are called “grades and weights” or, alternatively, “viscosity ratings”. To be clear, they are not quality ratings. A higher number is not necessarily better or worse, at least in the abstract. Instead, these numbers simply refer to certain properties that the motor oil has, and you need to be 100 percent sure that the motor oil you buy is matched up to your vehicle’s specific type of engine design.
