What does 51 do?
Oil may just be the most important thing your engine needs to stay in good condition for as long as possible, but it's one of the easiest things to neglect. If keeping healthy oil in your engine is the best way to take care of it, why would you cut corners? That's why we only recommend the use of high-grade synthetic oil. Synthetic oil not only requires fewer oil changes, but it also does a much better job at protecting your engine in numerous categories from day one.
What do oil filters do? Your engine can accumulate millions of particles that create wear in your engine that can cause a chain reaction of bad things to your vehicle. Filters are what separate those little particles from your oil to keep your engine healthy. However, not all filters are created equal. Many of the filters out there use cheaper materials, such as a paper-like material that can clog over time and can cause issues with your oil pressure which can increase wear and heat. Using a high-quality filter is so important, there's a strong case that the oil filter you use is more important than the oil you choose.
The oil filters we use will filter 99% of particles at 20 microns and larger to help reduce wear. These filters also won't clog as easily and restrict oil flow.
We're not in this for a quick buck. We actually want you to have an enjoyable vehicle owning experience, so we only carry nice windshield wipers that you should really only need to replace once every couple of years or so. Not only that, but we're not going to suggest you replace them unless they really need to be replaced. Usually when people experience streaking from their wipers, it's because there's built-up crud on the blade, and usually only needs to be cleaned off with some cleaning material.
Do you ever feel like your windshield just doesn't get as clean as it used to? Even after going through a car wash, does your windshield always have a dull feeling to it rather than that crystal clear feel it used to have when you bought it? There's a reason for that. Glass doesn't really want to repel water on its own. We offer Trico's windshield treating to bring your windshield back to its former glory and help repel rainwater for around 6 months (depending on use). Ask us today about it!
It's true, your air filters do need to be changed. Do they need to be changed every time you have your oil changed? Unless you do a lot of off-road driving or have a squirrel living in your car, then probably not! We're not going to "upsell" you on an air filter unless we really think you need one, and even then, we will never pressure you into buying one.
