YourMechanic offers car owners the convenience of car maintenance, repair, and diagnostic services at their home or office, seven days a week. A common service the company offers is an oil and filter change, which is recommended for vehicles approximately every 3,000 to 5,000 miles as part of a routine maintenance schedule. Low oil levels or old oil can result in increased friction between moving engine parts, potentially damaging the engine. Car owners are advised to follow their owner's manual for proper vehicle maintenance.
