Performance Plus Quick Lube's team of trained technicians is well-versed in the most common oil myths and uses that knowledge during regular oil changes to transform coughing engines into efficient, long-lasting, high-performance car-hearts. After expunging the contaminated sludge from the engine’s crankcase, the Performance pit crew enlists up to five quarts of Quaker State Enhanced Durability synthetic blend motor oil for a three-month (or 3,000-mile) tour of lubrication duty that eases piston pounding and traps engine dirt in suspended animation. Once they've installed a new oil filter, they'll top off the car's coolant, power steering fluid, and umbrella drink.
The automobile authorities at Seelye Wright of Paw Paw treat cars of all makes and models to a thorough maintenance routine that lasts from 30 minutes to an hour. Talented techs double-check brakes to ensure safe stopping at manatee crossings before subjecting belts and hoses to a thorough physical and refreshing all fluids to prevent vehicle dehydration. After banishing rogue particles with a new filter, engines guzzle fresh-squeezed oil and squeaks are silenced with a fresh coat of lubricant. The buggy revitalization is completed with a full tire rotation, in which rubber rollers play a game of musical wheel-well and treads are inspected for tears, punctures, and hidden stashes of potato chips.
At Crossroads Expert Auto Service, a NAPA AutoCare Center and recipient of the ASE Blue Seal of Excellence, ASE-certified technicians spoon-feed domestic and imported vehicles up to 5 quarts of Shell motor oil. During the 30-minute service, techs drain dreary dinosaur juice, replace it with fresh extract of an oil tanker, and install a filter designed to gobble up any contaminants in sight. Mechanics fire up supercomputer-like diagnostic equipment to test the battery for optimal performance and cold-weather cranking capability, then check that the coolant is prepared to maintain proper engine temperature during the upcoming Winter Age. After inspections are over, techs generate a comprehensive maintenance report card to provide drivers with their vehicle's grades and overall well-being. Crossroads keeps customers occupied in a multitasking lounge area that features complimentary wall-to-wall WiFi.
From a single shop in Sturgis, Michigan, Auto-Lab has grown into a full-service franchise that cares for cars' every nook and cranny. Each location's ASE-certified technicians keep autos flourishing with regular maintenance checkups, helping identify and stave off problems before they spread. These experts peer into the dark abyss under the hood, employing high-tech diagnostic tools to identify and repair computerized engine issues, and keep tabs on brakes before they seize up and stop you just as you're about to break the sound barrier. In addition, they guarantee all services for 12 months or up to 12,000 miles.
The GM-trained technicians at Demaagd GMC Nissan whip wearied vehicles into shape with fresh batches of oil and safety checks. During the 45-minute service, mechanics swap old oil for up to 5 quarts of clean fluid, slapping on new filters to protect engines from pollutants and their own insecurities. Then, the techs tickle cars until they chuckle their wheels off, allowing close scrutiny of the brake pads, rotors, and calipers to confirm the safety of the brake system and its willingness to obey stop signs. After reattaching the wheels to different axles—a step that helps to improve balance and prolong tire life—the mechanics comb the length of the car during a 27-point inspection, which includes a tire-pressure check, an interior and exterior light check, and a quick peek beneath the hood to gauge the battery's health.

AutoRenew's vehicle revampers treat cars to makeovers with interior and exterior detailing and repair services. Technicians kick off multistep cleaning sessions by soaping up the car's hide by hand, sealing in its new resplendence with hand applications of carnauba wax that leave auto bodies sparkling. A hot-water extraction digs deep into carpet fibers to remove stains and impacted grime, and nitrogen turns dust lingering on all surfaces and crevices into freeze-dried ice cream. A bacteria-removal system helps quash odors from the source, and staffers treat and condition leather and scrub down windows to fashion smudge-free vistas.
AutoRenew also coats exteriors in a synthetic polymer sealant, whose chemical bond to body paint wards off signs of dirt and wear more effectively than traditional carnauba wax. Wet sanding techniques refresh headlights and fog lamps for brighter beams, and windshield repairs rein in small and medium chips lest they splinter into larger cracks.

Pennzoil’s rich raceway heritage spans decades, from its first appearance in the early 1930s lubricating the engine of Indy 500 driver Russell Snowberger to its recent use in 2007 Daytona 500–winner Kevin Harvick’s car. Whether on the track in the Sprint Cup Series or in a garage in the suburbs, car owners who lube their rides with Pennzoil motor oil benefit from a more than 100-year lineage that dates back to one of John D. Rockefeller's original companies.

Pennzoil’s many service stations dot terra firma from the Atlantic to the Pacific and feature friendly technicians who perform oil changes and replace parts gone missing after the neighbor’s metal-detector-club meetings.
