Universal Mitsubishi fresh oil change


An engine with little or no wear may get by on 7,500 mile oil changes. But as an engine accumulates miles, blow-by increases, dumping more unburned fuel into the crankcase (which dilutes the oil), in turn causing accelerated wear and engine problems, including: loss of performance and fuel economy as well as increased emissions and oil consumption. Thus, for peak performance you'll want your vehicle to have an oil change. Mitsubishi provides this essential service to all of our clients, and no one knows your vehicle better.

What is known is that regularly changing your oil is crucial for vehicle health. Due to the high operating temperatures of the engines, oil goes thermal breakdowns, becoming less effective as a lubricant. When the oil stops lubricating, parts of the engine rub together and wear each other out, leading to costly repairs and replacements. All in all, our service technicians offer a value that can't be beat, so come in to Universal Mitsubishi today!

Conventional Oil or Synthetic Oil? Which is Best For my Car?

Rest assured that our certified Mitsubishi technicians know exactly what your vehicle requires when it comes to preserving the value of your model while providing you with a reliable and efficient commute. Changing your oil really depends on your driving habits and how long your oil has remained in your engine. Typically, you want to receive an oil change for a new vehicle every six months or every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Older vehicles should be serviced with fresh oil around the 3,000-mile mark and should use high-mileage motor oil.

The types of motor oil that keep your car functioning in tip-top shape are conventional, synthetic, synthetic blend, and high-mileage oil. Conventional oil is based from crude oil and consists of differently rated viscosities. Conventional oil is ideal for average driving styles, simple engines, and is commonly poured into newer engines. Synthetic and synthetic blend oils are a combination of oil and other various chemicals that are designed to enhance the performance of engines that operate at higher temperatures. The Synthetic blend is a deterrent to oxidation within your engine, and is ideal for low-temperatures. Then there is high-mileage motor oil which is designed for older engines, with 70,000 or more miles.

Once our service technicians learn the numbers on your odometer and the state of your engine, we find the oil that's best for your Mitsubishi. Keeping your vehicle on a routine service schedule holds the value of your vehicle investment and will prolong a reliable and efficient commute.
