Your engine is your main source of power for your vehicle, and our Acura service experts believe that if you take care of it, it’ll take care of you.  At Hopkins Acura, we are well known throughout the Redwood City area for providing stellar automotive mechanic services, including oil changes.

Lift the hood to your vehicle and give your engine a nice long look. You might not notice it at first, but over time you’ll discover that your engine is powered by a system of moving parts. All of these moving parts rub together on a regular basis and would constantly wear out if it weren’t for motor oil.

Motor oil is a brilliant lubricant designed to reduce the friction between all of these moving components. A quart or two of clean motor oil will not only reduce friction but reduce heat build-up, causing even more engine damage. That said, motor oil, like other lubricants in your engine, attracts grime, which can, in turn, reduce the effectiveness of your motor oil. Fortunately, when you visit our Acura dealership for a comprehensive oil change we’ll swap out that grimy motor oil for a fresh new batch. Our auto experts recommend that you see one of our experts once every 5,000 miles, to avoid the long-term repercussions of having grime-filled motor oil.
