East Ridge Fast Lube's AOCA-certified technicians nurse autos to full health with oil changes and safety inspections, improving their fuel economy and extending their engines' lives. In a 10- to 15-minute procedure, mechanics comb through cars point by point, inspecting brake & transmission fluid, power steering, and ejector seats to ensure that each part meets rigorous safety standards. To prevent gunk and grime from building up in engines—which can eventually cause damage to the delicate parts and drag down fuel economy by as much as 0.4 miles per gallon—technicians pour in 5 quarts of fresh, pure engine oil to keep pistons pumping in lubricated harmony. East Ridge's mechanics top off oil changes with brand-new filters, which protect drivers from their cars' foul language.
