Q : How long does it take for an oil service?
An oil service is an essential part of routine vehicle maintenance, but thankfully, it’s not really a time-consuming one. Generally speaking, you can expect your oil change to be completed within 45 minutes of your appointment beginning.
Q : When does my car need an oil change?
The short answer is before sludge starts forming. Sludge is when the oil gets thick with grime, and cannot serve its function of lubricating the engines internal components. The timing can really vary depending on the vehicle you’re driving, the conditions in which you’re driving, and how you drive. Look to your vehicle owner’s manual for a recommendation from the manufacturer, or bring your car into Premier Auto Services e-CAR for a recommendation from one of our Service Advisors.
Q : What is the price for an oil service?
A High Mileage option—recommended for most older vehicles over 10 years old and has covered more than 150 000 km—is priced at R 995. A Standard option, for vehicles between 5 and 10 years old costs a low R 1095. And a Full Synthetic option recommended for most vehicles older than 3 years and up, is R 1695.
Q : What is included in an oil change?
At Premier Auto Services e-CAR, each oil service option comes with an array of routine maintenance services, well beyond the oil change itself. In addition to changing the oil and filters, we offer a free 10 Point Safety Check, tyre pressure check, fluid top-up, visual brake check, and a service reminder sticker.
Q : What type of oil does my car need?
There is much misunderstanding about the difference between conventional and synthetic oil, as well as choosing the right oil grade (for example, 15W-40, 5W-30, etc.) The best way to determine what type of oil to use in your car is to check the manufacturer’s handbook (usually found in your cubby hole), where you’ll find a recommendation based on rigorous manufacturer testing. You can also bring your vehicle to Premier Auto Services e-CAR to get a recommendation from one of our Service Advisors.
Budget-Beater Service – Our Specialty!
Your engine is made up of many moving parts, and those parts need to be properly lubricated to avoid damage to your vehicle’s engine. The lubricating oil in the engine provides this vital service, but over time that oil breaks down and becomes contaminated with dust, dirt, and debris from your engine as well as the environment. When that happens, oil can’t do its job. Changing your oil and filter will help your vehicle’s engine continue working at its best.
Our Service Advisors will consider the make, model, condition, and mileage of your car before recommending the necessary oil service option. We offer Standard, High Mileage or Full Synthetic oil service options that are recommended based on your cars’ individual needs. All oil service options include a 10 Point Safety Check, Tyre Pressure Check, Fluid Top Up, Visual Brake Check, Standard Oil Filter and Top Quality ELF Engine Oil.
