At our new Express Oil Change location, we take great pride in our work and are dedicated to making sure that your oil change is a fast and friendly experience. Our ASE trained staff takes great pleasure in having you in and out of our quick lube in 10 minutes or less.

We only carry the highest grade of premium oils, filters, and lubricants from major manufactures. You need to make sure that you use a premium grade product to insure that you are getting the most out of your vehicles engine. If required, chassis lubrication is performed as well, where the frame of your car and wheels are lubricated that helps your vehicle move smoothly over bumps and turns around corners with ease.

Sometimes you may need to replace your air filter or cabin air filter. Air filters are designed to remove solid air born debris from your engine to enhance its performance and keep it running smooth. Cabin air filters are often overlooked, and can greatly reduce the effectiveness of the vehicles air conditioning and heating performance. Clogged or dirty cabin air filters can significantly reduce airflow from the cabin vents, as well as allowing allergens into your vehicles cabin air stream. So drive into any Car-X today, and feel good about driving again.
