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.
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service Oil Change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle.

In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform coolant flushes, transmission services, break flushes, cabin air filter and air filter replacements, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.

At each of the company's 51 franchise locations, technicians perform a slate of automotive services, from fluid flushes to headlight, taillight, and belt replacements using only new-vehicle-warranty approved parts. The company also pledges an ongoing commitment to protect the environment, as evidenced by their recycling program, which sees all used oil shipped off to be recycled into industrial grease or tears for robots with chronic dry eye.
