Today's modern cars are much more efficient than their ancestors; but still require periodic maintenance to keep them running at peak efficiency. Naturally, changing your oil every 3000 miles is one of the best ways to keep your automobile happy, but there are several other components that factor into your cars performance. Every Oil Changer service includes an inspection of these critical components:
Most modern cars have what are commonly called Service Lights. Small lights on the instrument panel can now alert drivers when it is time for service. Most vehicles do this through a computer calculating how many miles have accumulated since the last service. However, some vehicles use sensors to gather this data.
We have compiled a listing on the procedures to reset the reminder lights on your car if it is equipped. If you do not see the reset procedure for your vehicle: Reference the owner's manual that came with your vehicle. Reset procedures are often described in depth with illustrations
Contact a local dealership's service department. Your vehicle may have a simple process that can be described over the phone. Many newer cars utilize onboard diagnostic computers that control the maintenance lights in the vehicle. These cars require specialized reset tools that are only available at dealerships or specialized service centers.
WARNING: Resetting your service lights is not a remedy for servicing your vehicle. Only perform these procedures after an oil change/vehicle service and obey your manufacturer's suggested service intervals.

Oil Changer not only ensures that our customer’s waste oil is handled properly, but Oil Changer stores are designated as certified drop-off centers for "Do-it-Yourselfers" – those people in the community who change their own oil. In this way, we help the community in preventing illegal dumping of used oil. The waste oil that results from these combined efforts is then recycled. It is used in a variety of ways, such as Gasoil that is recovered as refinery fuel, asphalt flux used for roofing materials, and lube oil distillates that are used in the manufacture of re-refined oil. Oil Changer complies with all Federal, State, County and City regulations and requirements and ensures that our waste oil haulers themselves are in compliance.
Additionally, environmental audits are completed regularly at each of our locations and all-day observations are routinely performed on our vendors. Oil Changer employees are trained in hazardous materials handling, storage, record keeping, spill situations and other safety and compliance issues. As required by law, refresher courses in these areas are also given on a regular basis. The "Cradle-to-Grave" law holds a business responsible for properly disposing of a hazardous waste from start to finish, where it is ultimately recycled. Asbury Environmental Services provides hazardous waste recycling
services for Oil Changer. With almost 60 years of experience behind them, they are leaders in the industry. Their strength is based in part on an alliance with DeMenno/Kerdoon, one of the nation’s largest petroleum recycling facilities. We can be assured that our waste oil and waste oil filters are being recycled with the utmost dedication to the environment. We at Oil Changer take this charge very seriously; it is a responsibility that we are proud to uphold.
