Oil Changes

Why you should change your oil regularly.

Regular oil changes are a fundamental aspect of car maintenance. Engine oil lubricates vital components, reducing friction and preventing wear and tear. Over time, oil breaks down and becomes less effective, potentially causing engine damage. By changing the oil at recommended intervals, typically every 3,000 to 5,000 miles (check your owner’s manual), you ensure that your engine runs smoothly and efficiently, improving fuel economy and extending the life of your vehicle. It’s a relatively simple and cost-effective maintenance task that can significantly impact your car’s performance and longevity.

Oil Changes in Jeffersontown, KY

Unusual Noises

Engine oil serves as a lubricant that reduces friction between moving parts in the engine. Over time, oil breaks down and becomes less effective, potentially leading to increased friction and wear. Regular oil changes ensure that your engine continues to run smoothly and efficiently, reducing the risk of costly damage.

Heat Regulation

Engine oil also plays a vital role in dissipating heat generated during engine operation. As oil ages, it loses its heat-absorbing and dissipating properties, which can lead to overheating and decreased engine performance. Fresh oil helps maintain the engine’s optimal operating temperature, preventing overheating-related problems.

Contaminant Removal

Engine oil collects and holds contaminants like dirt, debris, and engine byproducts. These particles can become suspended in the oil, causing it to become sludgy and less effective. Regular oil changes remove these contaminants, ensuring that the engine remains clean and protected from harmful deposits.

Fuel Efficiency

Clean, fresh oil contributes to better fuel efficiency. When the engine runs smoothly and efficiently, it consumes less fuel. Neglecting oil changes can lead to reduced gas mileage, costing you more money at the pump. Regular oil changes not only protect your engine but also save you money in the long run by improving fuel economy.

I had a great experience getting my Jeep Grand Cherokee fixed up at the shop! The staff there were very knowledgeable and informative and I could tell they were looking out for me every step of the way. They gave me multiple options on repairs and bulb replacements and ended up getting me a great price on replacing my headlights. In the end it was FAR cheaper than what I was quoted at the Jeep dealership. I love supporting local businesses when I can and a trustworthy and competent mechanic is invaluable! I will certainly be taking all of my vehicles there for any future repairs!

My husband and I have been taking our vehicles here for a few months and we could not have asked for a better experience. The staff is kind and takes the time to explain what they are doing and why, which I am very appreciative of. I could not recommend The Shop more, you will not have a better experience anywhere else.

Steve and his team took excellent care of me. In order to get my car back before the weekend, they worked until 7:30 PM. They ordinarily close at 6:00. Then, once they were finished, they apologized for making me wait. Service like that is truly rare. They get all of my business from here on!

Exceptional service! I called them quite by accident when the dealership said they could not see me until mid June after my check engine came on. The owner, Steven Kelly, said come right over and we will diagnose the problem. I did and was completely at ease. Took my car in today and I can’t say enough good…a great bunch of guys (even though I had to walk there…LOL). I’ll never go anywhere else!!

My experience with The Shop was above par! My daughters car wouldn't start and I needed to have it towed. I called around multiple places and they all were about 2 weeks out. I called the shop initially and they didn't answer. However, I left a message and within just a couple minutes I had a call back and a text from The Shop. I called back and they could look at the car that day and let me know what they thought. It was an hour or so later and I was told it was the starter and that he would have it done in the next day or two. The Shop went above and beyond and took care of a few other minor repairs I needed as well. Price was excellent for the speed, service and overall experience. They even came in on the weekend so I could get my car back as I couldn't make in before they closed on Friday. This is the auto repair shop to go to! The shop will be my first call for now on and has my complete recommendation for others!

Love the location by the Gaslight Square. Very easy and accessible for low cars. I called the day before and they squeezed me in for a quick alignment on my daily driver so I could ensure a clean bill of health on my end of year road trip. They even followed up a day after the service to get feedback on the alignment for satisfaction. This part I was not expecting them to do so it was nice to know they are hungry for continuous improvements. I have two other track performance-oriented cars that will be allowed to go there as they are a trusted place to be.

Excellent service. Steven and company are super nice and take time to explain exactly if we need anything else done and why. Got our alignment, oil change, and a brand new battery installed for a very fair and accessible price. Our battery even got upgraded to a bigger one at no cost since the first battery installed seemed to not test well for whatever reason. It was a pleasure doing business here and we will definitely be back!!

The Shop will be the place I go to with any problems with my next car.

I was very impressed with The Shop and the staff. I went in to repair an oil leak and they went out of their way to make sure the leak was taken care of, and other problems were corrected. My 2005 G35 coup is now running the way I remember it use to. I am going to return my car to them next month to correct some electrical problems that I have. There we recommended to me, and I have recommended them to two other people since I starting dealing with them. I trust these guys with their work, and I look forward to rebuilding my car with them.

As a woman who has tried multiple automotive shops both chain and small, I cannot recommend The Shop enough. Their style of informing me what was going on with my 2011 VW Golf TDI was knowledgeable without mansplaining and was incredibly refreshing. This is a tip to toe mentality shared among the entire Shop, and you could tell they actually liked their jobs. Not common these days, but so nice to see. I have never felt more confident in my understanding of what is actually being worked on in my car and that the work being performed is of the highest quality. I will without a doubt be a lifelong customer. No one I'd trust more at this point.
