Oil Change Service in Mt. Pleasant, IA

Oil Change Service

We at Brad Holtkamp Automotive Inc in Mount Pleasant have been performing oil changes on vehicles since 1996. During an oil change service our qualified technicians will replace your engine oil, oil filter, and inspect the fluids in the engine bay for potential leaks.

There are two different types of engine oil: conventional and synthetic. There are significant differences between the two. Conventional oil is made from petroleum based products and synthetic oil is made from petroleum or synthetic-base stocks. Some drivers prefer synthetic oil over conventional oil due to how it is formulated to help provide advanced protection against major causes of engine stress, such as heat build up, excess friction, and deposits. Conventional oil is more prone to thinning at higher temperatures and thickening in lower temperatures. However, these problems can be prevented as long as you get your oil changed at the right interval for your mileage and vehicle make.

Signs you need to get an oil change service:

Depending on the type of oil you use on your vehicle and the amount of miles on the odometer, there is a regular schedule that should be followed when it comes to getting an oil change. A general rule to follow is to get an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Here are some signs that you need to get an oil change:

  • Excess vehicle exhaust.
  • Increased engine noise.
  • More mileage than usual.
  • Ticking sounds when starting.
  • Burnt oil smell.

If you need to get an oil change, come to Brad Holtkamp Automotive Inc to get one as soon as possible! It is important to get an oil change when due because excess friction can cause unnecessary wear to your engine.
