Engine Oil Service

Here in Mechanics on Grafton, we offer oil change service for your car, 4x4, and van from as low as $69. 

The main function of the engine oil is to reduce friction between the rubbing surfaces and protects the engine from wear and tear; it also inhibits corrosion, improves sealing, and cools the engine by carrying the heat away from moving parts. New engine oil acts as a cleansing tool to your engine and helps clean dirt and buildup from engine oil that could potentially damage the engine. 

Oil protects your engine and provides a layer of protection between the moving parts of the engine helping to keep all parts from wearing down. Oil also protects your engine from corrosion caused by condensation. Protecting your engine from corrosion is one of the main reasons why you need to have regular oil changes. 

The motor oil undergoes thermal and mechanical degradation, which reduce the viscosity, meaning it loses its thickening and becomes sludgy. At reduced viscosity, the oil is not as capable of lubricating the engine, thus increasing wear and the chance of overheating.

At Mechanics on Grafton, we have number of options available for both petrol and diesel, from express to comprehensive according to manufacturer's specification.  Our different levels of service are designed to meet the varying needs of vehicles, regardless of age, condition or history. We recommend oil change for every 5,000km or every 6 months. We will test / inspect fluids, filters and only recommend items that need replacing, saving you time and money in the long run.
