Draining Old Oil
Replacing old filter with the new oil filter
Safely disposing of the old oil and filters
Filling up new Oil as per manufacturers specification
As oil changes are recommended once every 10,000 miles or annually (whichever comes first), replacing the oil filter at the same time helps to ensure that the oil can flow freely throughout the engine and will remain in good condition at least until the next oil change.
Our Gloucester based team of mechanics will drain the old oil and replace with new oil to your manufacturer specification. They will also replace the oil filter at the same time.
An oil and filter change is ideal for maintaining your cars peak operating performance between services, but is not a replacement for a full annual service. If you don’t remember the last time your car had an oil change or service, we recommend a Full Service. You can expect highest quality of service delivered by our team in the German Car Service in Gloucester. Satisfaction guaranteed.

How do you know if your vehicle needs an oil change?
Check your oil at least once a month to ensure your car’s not leaking or burning oil. If the level is low, add oil. Good oil should be a clear brown-black colour, however that is not the only indicator of oil life. If the oil is murky or opaque, it might be time for a change, and if it’s milky, your engine may be leaking coolant so you really have to call us and get this inspected.
You have probably heard that you should change your car oil every 3000 miles or every 10000. It can be confusing, but it really depends on what kind of oil you use, and your driving style. Nowadays most cars are running on synthetic oil. This is a more expensive oil but will allow you to drive more miles between car oil and filter changes or full services.
Generally if your car is using a synthetic oil and you are driving sensibly, you should be able to do between 8000 to 10000 miles.
On the other hand if you are using cheaper and non-synthetic oil you are probably better of changing it every 5000 miles.
