Oil change

Oil is more important than a lubricant

Oil is vital to your engine’s life and performance. It makes parts run cooler, preventing energy loss and engine deterioration. It also combats rust and corrosion while acting as a seal space between the piston and cylinder. Oil additives also remove impurities and sludge, clean existing deposits and prevent damage.


Today’s engines, especially those with turbo compressors, are extremely complex and require lubricants of a particular viscosity that contain specific additives and detergents that break down over time. If not changed regularly, a gelatinous sludge can build up and wear your seals and engine.

A state-of-the-art oil change includes a quality filter that can sustain kilometres without losing its capacity to filter dirt and particles so the oil remains top shape.

Plus, your NAPA AUTOPRO technician will inspect other vehicle components and provide a summary report.


Generally, engine oil should be changed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Your certified NAPA AUTOPRO technician knows which viscosity, API rating or specific certifications your engine requires.
