An oil change can really change your mood.
And it will definitely change your oil.

One of the simplest, most effective and inexpensive ways to help protect the life of your car, especially its engine, is to change the oil and the oil filter regularly.

Oil is the lifeblood of your engine. It reduces friction, lessens wear, provides lubrication, forms a seal between the pistons, rings and cylinder walls while helping to cool engine parts. Without the cleaning action of new oil, carbon and varnish buildup would be toxic to the engine. And engine oil even dampens the shock and noise of moving parts.

With a Car Repair Service oil change, or any other service, you’ll receive a Touch® Courtesy Check. We’ll look inside, outside, under the hood and underneath the car, then explain the findings and give you a written report.

While you’re there, let us perform a Touch® Courtesy Check, which includes a visual check of the following items:

Engine air filter
Brake fluid
Power steering fluid
Automatic transmission fluid
Coolant/antifreeze
We’ll also walk you through your vehicle manufacturer’srecommendations for replacing these vital fluids and filters.

Oil Change – More than You Wanted to Know
Engine Oil
Most cars on the road today use multi-grade oil — one that can work efficiently in cold and hot weather. A multi-grade oil is rated by two numbers, such as 5W-30.

About the oil classification system.
Each engine oil comes with a classification indicating its viscosity, which is its friction or resistance to flow. In a multi-grade oil, the first number indicates how the oil will flow when it is cold. The lower the number, the lighter the oil and the better it will perform at lower temperatures. The second number indicates the thickness of that same oil at high temperatures. For example, a 5W-30 oil will flow as a 5-weight oil at zero degrees Fahrenheit and as a 30-weight oil at 210 degrees Fahrenheit

Why viscosity is a concern.
During cold starting, only a small amount of oil is present in the upper parts of engines. To lessen the friction when upper engine parts, such as the valve train, pistons, overhead cam and cam bearings, scrub against each other, a lower viscosity allows the oil to reach the components more quickly.

Why 5W-30 and 5w-20 oils are so popular.
Many vehicles today leave the factory with 5W-30 or 5w-20 engine oil. Vehicle manufacturers recommend them because they are lighter oils that perform well in a range of temperatures and help improve gas mileage.

Synthetic Oils
Not all motor engine oils are 100% petroleum. Synthetic oils, which are primarily chemically compounded lubricants, are also available. They can provide:

Higher viscosity stability over a wider temperature range
Reduced oil thickening
Reduced wear and increased load-carrying ability.
Which oil is right for your car?
The simplest and safest way to find out is to check your owner’s manual…or talk to your Midas mechanic.

Oil Filters
Oil filters are designed to trap foreign particles suspended in the oil and prevent them from getting to the engine bearings and other parts.

Fluids
Your vehicle relies on a variety of fluids to operate its brake, steering, transmission, engine cooling and other systems. When these fluids become degraded or are at incorrect levels, damage to other components may occur…so always follow the manufacturer-recommended service schedule.

Automatic Transmission Fluid
This is typically an oil-based fluid used in a transmission that lubricates and cools the transmission and provides hydraulic pressure to shift gears automatically.

Brake Fluid
This is the hydraulic fluid used to transmit pressure through the brake lines in a brake system providing stopping power and protecting hydraulic brake components from internal corrosion.

Coolant/Antifreeze
This is the mixture of water and antifreeze used in an engine cooling system to dissipate heat and maintain the engine’s temperature throughout its operating range.

Starting & Charging
The battery starts your car, powers on-board computers and supplies emergency power needs. A weakened battery causes stress on alternators and starters, especially during extreme temperatures. Let Midas test and inspect your battery regularly.

Air Filters
Clean air filters can increase engine performance, boost fuel mileage and reduce engine wear. Cabin air filters can minimize airborne contaminants in the passenger compartment and improve heating/cooling efficiency.

Touch® Courtesy Check
The Midas Touch® Courtesy Check is fast, efficient and covers many items on your vehicle’s preventive maintenance schedule. We’ll conduct a visual check, looking inside, outside, under the hood and under the vehicle, then provide you with a written report.

    Weird Vehicle Electrical Issue Fixed!
    I had an extremely weird problem with my out of warranty 2014 Honda Accord and the company that resolved it was Urban Motor Works in Scottdale, GA. Dan and Cameron are amazing! It’s a long story…
    … More
    All the indicator lights would come on in my instrument panel. The ABS, front collision warning, lane drift, brake…. All of them. And then, they would turn off. And then on etc.. The ABS really would fail as would all of the other safety systems in the car making it dangerous to drive.
    Honda was little help. After taking the vehicle to a Honda Dealer, the problem was diagnosed as an ABS module fault. Cost to repair? $1,200! I wouldn’t accept it. I did a ton of research and discovered 1) There were very few people that ever had this issue and 2) that since 2014, only one of these modules had been ordered in the entire Atlanta area and 3) they were back ordered from the manufacturer. Conclusion? These units shouldn’t fail. If they did, the replacement part would be available.
    Opened up a case with American Honda, Response: Nope. Sorry, doesn’t matter that you’ve owned 10 Hondas and that your family has also owned Hondas… we can’t help you. But (nice jab) they did imply that, if only I had been taking my vehicle to the dealer for regular service, they may have been able to assist. Surly made me think about purchasing another brand for my next car. But, I was persistent about finding another way, and I did.
    After discovering Urban Motor Works, they confirmed the dealer’s diagnosis but, went the extra mile to find a surplus ABS module that would bring the total repair bill, including labor to under $600! It was a lot of work to install but the new module didn’t function properly. It was late on a Friday. They put the car back together, didn’t charge me anything.and even brought the car to my home! Then, after a week, they found another unit, installed it and problem solved!

    These guys specialize in weird electrical problems, are honest, incredibly easy to deal with, expert at what they do and work to find cost effective solutions. So if you have a problem like this one, don’t lay down for a car dealer’s restrictive policies. Take it to Urban Motor Works! You won’t be disappointed!
