Oil Change & Maintenance

Does Your Car Need an Oil Change?
Our Staff Can Help You With That and More!

While oil changes are an important component to keeping your vehicle running efficiently, more maintenance is definitely required. To start taking the necessary preventive maintenance precautions, basic oil change services is a good place to begin. Typically car manufacturers recommend routine oil change services every 3,000 miles. It's always a smart idea to confirm this within your car's manual when you first receive it.

At our local garage in Somerville, NJ our trained staff of mechanics offer full service oil changes. During this service we also check our client's vehicles for any potential brake issues and more.

Bringing your car in for routine oil change services will help you extend the life of your car while also ensuring that it is running as efficiently as it can be. By replacing the old, discolored oil you will also avoid your engine from dropping, where you would have to then either replace the entire car or engine.

Basic car expectations are getting from Point A to Point B safely, and its the use of preventive maintenance services that guarantees this.
Whether you just received your license or have been a licensed road warrior for decades, you should know the importance of preventive maintenance. Don’t be intimidated by that term, it really just means taking care of potential problems. Just like each of us, our car needs some occasional TLC. It’s similar to going to the dentist for a check-up, making sure certain problems are taken care of before they get worse. So, you’re probably thinking, “What garages near me offer preventive maintenance for my car?”

Though oil changes are the most basic form of preventive maintenance, more is required. At Jersey Guy Automotive we perform a FREE Visual Inspection of your vehicle each time you bring it in. With over 20 years experience we have developed a checklist of key components that keep your vehicle performing at optimal levels.

Here is a small list of items we check.

  • Belts
  • Hose Condition
  • Battery Charge Level
  • Brake Pad Thickness
  • Brake Lines
  • Coolant Level/Condition
  • Exhaust System
  • Tire Tread Depth/Condition

With our preventive maintenance we will not only evaluate your car, but also log and follow your car's performance during every visit. We understand the true impact preventive maintenance services and the value of your time. Our staff of certified mechanics will help you improve your car's safety and efficiency without drawing out the process.


Recent studies have shown that at least 5% of automotive fatalities each year are direct results of neglected, deteriorating parts. Preventive maintenance can save you money, as well as your life. Remember, spending a few hundred dollars now can be a great alternative to purchasing a brand new car, or spending thousands in hospital bills.


Besides the sneak peek of part of our checklist, see what other areas we consider in our Preventive Maintenance Services? Take a look below:


Cables and Fluids

Our certified team will ensure that all cables and fluids are connected properly and filled. We will make sure there is no corrosion on your car battery, and confirm that your chassis has been properly lubricated to keep all suspension components running smoothly.


Engine Tune-Ups and Belts

Replacing or repairing an engine is not cheap. It’s important to make sure that you are taking the necessary time to keep your engine purring. Jersey Guy Auto provides our clients with preventive maintenance services that include engine tune-ups, which confirm that components like spark plugs are running correctly. Clogs in those areas or in the fuel-injector can drastically affect your car’s fuel efficiency.


Our preventive maintenance services also check the state your engine’s belts are in. Looking for cracks, tears, or missing pieces we will identify any areas that can benefit from a belt replacement.


We can also check your timing belt! Learn about our Timing Belt Services.


Air Filtration Systems

One of the most common areas of neglect is your air filtration system. Typically this service can be broadly included in oil changes, though more is required. Clogs and damage can prevent your car from running as efficiently as possible.


Tire Pressure/Inflation

More than 70% of drivers do not know how to identify if their tires are bald or not. Only about 15% actually check their tire pressure. With so many common misconceptions and areas overlooked, it’s important to understand proper tire care. Apart of Jersey Guy Automotive’s preventive maintenance services do just that, showing you the important areas to check.


Lighting System/Windshield Wiper Review

A properly working lighting system and windshield wipers are extremely important to ensuring all preventive maintenance measures are being taken. As heavily relied-upon areas during bad weather or at night means that improper care can cost you more than just car repairs. It’s important to even make sure that basic areas such as these are checked and running efficiently at all times.
