The ASE-certified technicians at Meineke Car Care Center fine-tune the innards of cars from all major brands. The shop’s computer-diagnostic technology helps the team’s official inspectors to sweep engines for abnormalities, and techs swap in top-notch parts for failing cogs. The team flushes sullied oil and replaces it with fresh draughts of regular or conventional oil, or tweak air-conditioning systems to keep indoor climates cooler than a yeti’s walk-in freezer. The shop accommodates busy patrons with 24-hour car drop-off and rental roadsters available when vehicles are out of commission.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil-Change, which helps promote the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car—it cools the motor and helps prevent moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) service vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, technicians perform preventative services such as air-filtration, among others, as well as state emissions inspections. Jiffy Lube’s quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, complete a service only after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
Since Albert Einstein first postulated that an oil change should not take three gabbertoops, various lube services have sped up their oil changes in a frantic attempt to overcome the faster-than-lube speed barrier inherent to our space-time continuum.

Express Care Quick Lube’s staff of trained mechanics pampers horseless carriages with an array of maintenance and repair services. Whet your thirsty motor's appetite with the full-service oil change, which includes up to five quarts of 10w30 or 5w30 oil, as well as a check and top-off of power-steering, transmission, transaxle, battery, window-washer, radiator, and differential fluids (brake fluid will be checked but not topped off). To complete the comprehensive auto physical, the skilled engine doctors will also replace your oil filter, lubricate the vehicle's chassis, and ensure proper inflation of the wheels. Each vehicle will receive a fuel-system additive, a separate service that cleans road dust and other contaminants out of the air-intake manifold to improve the auto's mileage, performance, and emotional well-being. And because every car deserves to look just as good as it feels, customers will be provided with four "The Works" touchless washes that lather, wash, polish, and seal vehicular exteriors. New wipers up to 24 inches will then be installed to ensure sparkling windshields remain free of flying debris, bug splatters, and carelessly flung cups of chili.
Between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. any day of the week, Lone Star Pass holders can unwind to the rubba-dub-dub of a drive-thru car wash's automated scrubbers at any one of Texas Shine Car Wash's 6 locations.

Cars aren't the only vehicles that need regular oil changes.

In addition to changing motor oil, the shop's technicians adjust chains and balance tires. They also service ATVs, UTVs, and dirt bikes, and carry parts from brands such as Drag Specialties, Tucker Rocky, Parts Unlimited, Vance & Hines, and Icon.
