For more than 30 years, Precision Tune Auto Care's ASE–certified technicians bolster and maintain automobiles of most makes and models with 5W-30 oils. During the 30- to 40-minute service, deft mechanics drain dirty oils from the bottom of the car, funnel in up to 5 quarts of new 5W-30 standard oil, and install a clean filter to make rides run more smoothly than a curling stone gently gliding over a well-oiled seal. Once dry car parts have been adequately slickened, eagle-eyed mechanics examine the car's perimeter during a multipoint inspection, throwing glances toward essential operations to quell safety concerns, confirm optimal performance, and make sure engines think before revving. Precision's customer-waiting area allows drivers to relax their pedal-pressing toes while professional techs service their cars.
