Most of the automotive-maintenance services at Pro Oil Change begin with the pop of a hood. The dull sound reverberates around the engine, where trained and certified technicians inspect air filters, replace batteries, refill fluid levels, and inject Valvoline motor oil. Outside the automotive nucleus, they extend their restorative touch toward burned-out headlights and waved-out windshield-wiper blades. All of this unfolds inside their welcoming facility, which accepts all vehicle makes and models and features a waiting room with TVs and complimentary coffee, hot chocolate, or tea.

When he turned 17, Jason Scott bought his first Mustang and fell in love with classic cars. Determined to spend as much time around automobiles as possible, Scott apprenticed with Ford Canada and Chrysler, learning the ropes as a technician. Over the years, he has taken hundreds of programs and studied aspects of car maintenance such as electrical systems, automatic transmissions, and clean emissions. Now installed in his newly opened shop, Scott continues to keep customers' cars in tip-top shape and contritely explains that there's nothing he can do about carpooling coworkers who hog the radio dial.
