Engine Oil Change

When the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message displays, have the engine oil and filter changed within the next 1000 km/600 mi. If driven under the best conditions, the engine oil life system might not indicate the need for vehicle service for more than a year. The engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and the oil life system must be reset. Your trained dealer technician can perform this work. If the engine oil life system is reset accidentally, service the vehicle within 5000 km/3000 mi since the last service. Reset the oil life system when the oil is changed.

I took my elderly Corolla to A&J Automotive for a thorough check-up, where an expert mechanic/diagnostician confirmed arthritis (creaky joints); heart trouble (old engine); problems with metabolism (no AC), and a few other symptoms of an intensely driven life. A&J provided palliative care for me, sending me off for the d...

I've been allowing A&J to do work on my car for sometime now, But I'm now finding that some of the techs are not as knowledgeable as others, I spent $900.00 on some transmission work and asked them to change a headlight and I was told it wasn't a bad bulb but it maybe a relay switch! After an hour of waiting I was told they ...

They recommended I have my tires rotated and re-aligned. I had recently had them re-aligned by another company and the previous company had not done a great job. A & J did a wonderful job fixing the problem. I drove my car out of the A & J lot and felt like I was driving a new car. On top of that, I feel A & J is cou...

i prefer to find value in the things i buy and on the services i pay for; one can always find things cheap but it's value is lacking. A and J has consistently provided my family and our vehicles with honest and value priced service. such is the case, again , on our most recent visits with both of our cars. i particularly like th...

Same day diagnosis and turnaround. I had a simple AC recharge so nothing complicated and they did not try to force additional services like other shops. While I am not looking forward to more repairs I am glad to have found a place that seems to put the customer first. They earned a repeat customer today.

Trying to isolate the cause of the "Service Engine Soon" warning light took quite a long time, but the technician finally traced it and replace the part. The technicians always look for potential risks for failure on the vehicle. He had seen an issue with another part and replaced them as well, but the cost was minimal, consider...

My scruffy but faithful Toyota Corolla and I agree that the service provided by A&J Automotive is efficient, pleasant and compassionate.
