Fluid Changes

The most effective and least expensive way to help protect the life of your car, especially its engine, is to change the oil and the oil filter regularly. Oil is the lifeblood of your engine. It reduces friction, lessens wear, provides lubrication, forms a seal between the pistons, rings and cylinder walls while helping to cool engine parts. Engine oil even dampens the shock and noise of moving parts.

Absolute Auto Repair centers in Fitchburg, Ma and Shirley, MA provide oil and fluid schedules according to OEM specifications. See our service advisor for additional considerations based upon you driving habits.

While you are here every oil change includes a 10 point inspection including:

  • Engine air filter
  • Brake fluid
  • Power steering fluid
  • Automatic transmission fluid
  • Coolant/antifreeze
  • Windshield Wiper Fluid
  • Tire Pressure
  • Warning Check Engine
  • Wipers
  • Exterior Running Lights

We’ll also walk you through your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations for replacing these vital fluids and filters.
