Oil Changes

At Auto Kruser's, we are oil change and lube experts. We have synthetic oil available, to better protect your engine and enhance your car’s performance, not to mention synthetic oil is resistant to heat and viscosity breakdown.

It’s recommended that you change your oil every 3 months or 3,000 miles to help keep your car running at peak performance.

One of the most common mistakes you can make with your car is to let things slide when it comes to something as simple as an oil change. Properly scheduled oil changes can help your car last a long long time.


Antifreeze does not just keep your engine from freezing; it keeps it from getting too hot as well. So antifreeze is important all year round.

Cooling system failure is the number one cause of engine-related breakdowns. That’s why it’s just as important to check your antifreeze as it is to check your oil and brakes.

Let Auto Kruser's inspect your radiator to check for leaks and we can also perform a complete flush and fill, which is recommend every two years. Your engine produces enough heat to destroy itself. Don’t let it.

Transmission Fluid

Transmission fluid acts as a lubricant for all the moving parts in your transmission. Automatic transmission fluid also acts as a coolant and helps transmit power from the engine to the transmission.

If your vehicle has a manual transmission, or stick shift, your manufacturer recommends changing the fluid every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. The service interval for an automatic transmission is every 60,000-80,000 miles; although it’s not a bad idea to have it checked more frequently.

That’s because if there’s a leak and your transmission fluid levels drop, you may not know about it until it’s too late. Chances are you won’t hear any noise or get any other identifiable clues.

Brake Fluid

Obviously, anything to do with your brakes is extremely important to your safety. Maintaining proper brake fluid levels in your master cylinder reservoir is no exception. You should have your brake fluid checked every time you have your oil changed.

Brake fluid delivers force to various parts of the brake when you step on the pedal.

During a free brake inspection, Auto Kruser's will check your brake fluid levels as well as make sure your shoes or pads, drums, rotors, wheel bearings, anti-lock brakes (abs) and emergency brake system are all in good, safe working order.

It’s also recommended you have a hydraulic system flush periodically. For your specific vehicle, always consult your own’s manual for additional service information.
