Fast, Affordable Oil Change Services
Best Oil Change Experience I've Ever Had
I have been taking my car to Victory Auto Service & Glass for oil changes for years. I would never trust an instant oil shop again after my plug was stripped. Victory has always done it right. I love the concierge service where they pick up my vehicle for free! Saves so much time!

Protect Your Engine from Internal Breakdown
Changing your vehicle's engine oil is a critical service for maintaining the performance of your vehicle. Most vehicle manufacturers suggest changing your oil every 3,000 - 5,000 miles depending upon the type of oil your engine needs. At Victory Auto Service & Glass, we use only the very best engine oil and parts for your vehicle.
Engine oil starts clear, but over time dust and contaminants are picked up as the oil is circulated throughout your engine. Dirty oil can cause significant engine problems if not addressed properly.

The Big Choice: Synthetic or Conventional Oil?
Your engine oil is a primary defense against engine breakdown and maintaining consistent performance. Since 2000, there has been much debate about synthetic vs conventional oil. While either will protect your engine just fine if routinely serviced, here are the main differences with synthetic oil to be aware of.
Superior Lubrication at Temperature Extremes
Most synthetic oils are better at keeping your engine lubricated at higher and lower temperature ranges. This is because synthetic oils have added lubricants chemically designed to maintain superior lubrication at the extreme temperature highs and lows. Increased lubrications decreases engine wear and tear over time and may add to your engine's life.
Better Stability Over Time
Oil starts to lose its lubricating properties as it is heated and exposed to oxygen. Primarily the oil increases in viscosity, or more simply will be a 'thin' or 'runny' oil. This is what people mean by an oil 'breaking down'. Synthetic oils are formulated to maintain their thickness at high temps and over longer periods of time. Maintaining this viscosity enables synthetic oil to provide stable, consistent lubrication to engine parts.
Fewer Deposits in the Engine
Conventional oil is an organic substance. As such, conventional oils leave deposits on engine components when exposed to prolonged heat and oxygen (aka Hard Driving). These deposits literally stick to your engine parts and builds layer on layer like a blood clot. Synthetic oils are chemically engineered to reduce engine deposits, allowing for superior flow of oil to critical engine parts.
* When in doubt, you should follow your vehicle manufacturer’s recommended oil.
** In order to give you the best performance for your money, Victory Auto Service & Glass only uses full-synthetic and synthetic-blend motor oils from our award-winning local vendor Lube Tech

Oil Change F.A.Q.
It depends on your vehicle. Different vehicles require different oil specificiations. You manufacturer will specify how often to change your oil in your owner's manual. However most conventional oil needs to be replaced every 3,000 miles; full-synthetic every 5,000 miles. Typically this is about every 2-3 months depending on how often you drive.
Synthetic oil is not nessecarily 'better'. You need to use the motor oil your manufacturer recommends. Your engine is designed specifically for a certain type of engine oil with certain chemical elements. Deviating from what your manfuacturer recommeneds is not a wise strategy for maintaining performance of your vehicle.

Simply put, bad things happen. You can put your engine at risk of siezing. Think of it like an engine heart attack. Oil turns into sludge when not changed and prevents your engine from moving properly, just like a clogged atery can lead to a heart attack. Often when this happens you have to replace the entire engine which costs $$$$$ 🙁 Fortunately there is an easy solution, just get your oil changed on a reguglar occurance.
