Lubricant Maintenance Services:

The services that are most often neglected by drivers are also some of the easiest to take care of. The expensive, sophisticated engines in today’s vehicles can be utterly destroyed by improper care of fluids. Fluid maintenance services are a Footscray Auto Care specialty.

Automotive Oil Changes

Expert technicians agree that the oil change is the single most important maintenance service your vehicle can receive.

When does the oil in my vehicle need to be changed?

Most manufacturers recommend oil change every three months or 5,000-10,000 Kilometres under severe driving conditions - city driving, stop and go traffic, short trips, and dusty conditions - just about every case except steady highway driving.

What does our automotive Oil Change include?

  • Up to 5 Liters of major brand oil
  • New oil filter
  • Lubrication of the various fittings on your vehicle’s undercarriage when applicable
  • Thorough maintenance inspection of all safety and performance related systems

Transmission and Differential Fluids

In addition to the oil change, transmission and differential fluids must be changed to assure proper operation. On four-wheel drive vehicles, the transfer case also requires regular fluid maintenance. Neglecting transmission and differential fluid service could result in extensive repairs or the replacement of some of your vehicles most expensive components.

Footscray Auto Care generally recommends this service to be done every 40,000 Kilometres. For your vehicle, refer to the manufacturer’s maintenance recommendation.

Oil, Transmission and Differential Fluid changes are performed based on manufacturer’s recommendations, or as needed as determined by our inspection and based on industry standards.
