We all know that getting regular oil changes is an important part of owning a vehicle, as oil plays such an integral role in the function of an engine. Each neighborhood seems to have dozens of shops advertising oil change service specials for a range of prices, which can leave one wondering what each service actually includes, and which shop is going to do the best job.
At your neighborhood Chicagoland Jiffy Lube®, an oil change means more than just a new oil filter and fresh motor oil. That’s because we offer the Jiffy Lube Signature Service® Oil Change, which goes beyond the basics in order to ensure that your vehicle gets the care and attention it needs.
A More Comprehensive Service
What makes a Jiffy Lube Signature Service® stand out from the rest? We provide a more thorough service for your vehicle, so that all preventative maintenance can be completed on schedule. This not only helps overall performance, but also helps to extend the longevity of your vehicle. Here is what you can expect each time you come in to Jiffy Lube® for an oil change.
Recommended Manufacturer Maintenance Checks
Each vehicle has its own unique required maintenance schedule from the manufacturer, which means that each vehicle has different needs. Every time you come in for an oil change, we check your vehicle’s recommended maintenance schedule in order to see if any services are due. While not all Jiffy Lube® locations perform every service, your technician can help you find a location to get any required maintenance performed, right in your own neighborhood.
Check All Fluids
While motor oil may be the fluid that requires the most frequent attention, it is by no means the only one that your vehicle needs to run properly. That’s why we check all of your fluid levels during your oil change, and top them off free of charge. Not only does this ensure nothing ever runs too low, it can also alert you to potential leaks before they get serious enough to cause damage to your engine.
Assess Air Filter
Another important component of your engine performance is the cabin air filter. A clogged or dirty filter can not only reduce fuel efficiency, but also allows more dust, pollen, another particles inside of your vehicle cabin. As the frequency of air filter replacement is very much dependant upon your driving habits and outdoor conditions, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to how often it needs to be changed. That’s why we assess the condition of your air filter at every oil change, so that it can be replaced when necessary.
Periodically checking that your vehicle’s many exterior lights are working is something many of us forget to do. That is why your Jiffy Lube® technician checks all exterior lights on your vehicle during an oil change to be sure that all of them are functioning properly.
From rain to sleet to snow, the wiper blades on your vehicle see a lot of use throughout the year, which is why it is important to make sure they are intact for when the need arises. A quick inspection during your oil change will tell whether or not your blades are holding up, or are in need of replacement.
The suspension system of your vehicle is full of many different components working together to keep your vehicle riding smoothly. Many of these components link together, and each of these joints rely on a special lubricant to help minimize wear and tear and seal out moisture. A lack of lubrication can cause excessive wear, which will eventually lead to your vehicle needing costly repairs. During a Signature Service® oil change, your technician will check these joints and apply lubricant as needed, keeping your ride smooth and increasing the longevity of suspension components.
A Quick Cleaning
There’s nothing worse than getting your vehicle back dirty after paying for a service, and at your neighborhood Chicagoland Jiffy Lube®, you will never have that problem. After every Jiffy Lube® service, we vacuum the interior of your vehicle and clean the exterior windows because we believe that when we hand you back your keys, your vehicle should be just as clean as it was when you drove it in.
Even after you drive away, our service doesn’t stop there. For the next 3,000 miles we have your fluids covered. Stop by any Jiffy Lube® to have your fluid levels checked, and we will top off any that are running low, free of charge.
More Service, More Value
We believe that it is important to provide these extended inspection services for every Signature Service® oil change that we complete, so that we can help you keep your vehicle performing at its best. Stop by your neighborhood Chicagoland Jiffy Lube® the next time your vehicle needs an oil change, and see the difference a Signature Service® Oil Change can make.
