Oil Change Services
The oil in your vehicle plays vital roles, such as minimizing friction, reducing wear, preventing corrosion, and more. Therefore, it should be of high quality and in good condition to perform all its tasks.
However, the nutrients and additives in oil are used up even with regular use. This is why it’s essential to have regular oil changes. And at Barney Brothers Off Road & Repair, we offer oil changes and other oil-related services in Grand Junction, CO.

How Often Should I Have an Oil Change?
Every vehicle is different regarding how often the oil should be changed. The previous rule of thumb was to do it every 3,000 miles. But cars using more efficient synthetic oils may be able to stretch it every 5,000 or 10,000 miles.
In any case, have an oil change based on the manufacturer-suggested interval—at a minimum. You should always refer to the owner’s manual for such specifics. The expert mechanics at Barney Brothers Off Road & Repair can also suggest the best oil change interval based on your unique driving habits.
What Happens If I Skip an Oil Change?
An oil change is a small price to pay for the protection it offers. If you skip or fail to do it, you’re in the fast lane toward expensive engine repair or replacement. Allowing old, dirty, degraded oil to circulate through your engine will turn oil into a thick sludge.
This sludge cannot reduce engine friction, dissipate heat, or perform other vital tasks an engine oil should do. Instead, it will retain heat and cause unnecessary wear and tear on your engine.
