What is included in an oil change at Cochrane Toyota?

On top of the oil and filter change we are proud to include a 15 point visual inspection which includes;

  • Top up of under hood fluids
  • Adjustment of tire pressures
  • Checking tire tread depth
  • Visual inspection of all drive belts, hoses and exterior lights
  • Check of engine air filter
  • Lubrication of the hinges, locks and latches
  • Complimentary wheel alignment check
  • Courtesy car wash

My vehicle uses conventional motor oil, but I'm thinking about switching to synthetic motor oil. Can I do this?

Yes, as long as the synthetic oil is the same viscosity (weight) as the recommended conventional oil, and meets or exceeds the oil grade. However, the oil change interval will still remain every 8,000 kms or 6-months even if using synthetic oil.
