Mechanics first lubricated engines with olive oil, leading to a shortage that resulted in people facing a daily choice of functional transportation or homemade hummus. Sauté your engine in motor oil with today's Groupon: for $17, you get a full-service oil change and 75-point courtesy check-up at United Auto Parts & Service in Trevose.
Customers at United Auto Parts & Service can expect capable auto maintenance in the context of an old-fashioned, small-town shop. During a standard oil change, ASE-certified mechanics will replace old, worn-out oil with 4 quarts of fresh-faced young fluid, straight from lubricant college and ready to take on the heat, dust, and incredible pressures of today's high-octane internal-combustion world. To help the pristine, nonsynthetic oil adjust to its new job of safeguarding precious moving parts, gaskets, and various shafts, an economy oil filter is also included. Mechanical lovelies then undergo a meticulous 75-point courtesy check-up, beginning with a check of fluid levels. Careful car techs complete the visual check-up by examining gizmos such as light bulbs and belts, gadgets such as hoses and wipers, and gewgaws such as drag-racing trophies. The service comes to a graceful halt after an inspection of the tires, front suspension, air filter, and exhaust system.
United Auto Parts and Service
Black-and-white checkerboard floors and faux traffic lights greet every customer that walks into United Auto's lobby. Photos of antique cars hover above a black couch, which is flanked by a candy machine and a shelf overflowing with children's toys. Beyond this sleek lobby, ASE-certified technicians toil away with tools and more than 25 years of know-how. They welcome cars for services as simple as an oil change or as complicated as engine repair and also perform state-mandated inspections to ensure cars are safe for the road and not churning out excess pollution or trash talk. On the other side of the garage, an auto parts store stocks all the essentials—from spark plugs to air fresheners and floss for the grill—for motorists who enjoy working on their own cars.
