Keep Your Vehicle’s Oil & Fuel System Clean
Systems run at their best when they’re kept clean and ready for the next adventure. It’s the same with your car! A clean oil and fuel system improves fuel efficiency, keeps your car running longer (and better) and makes you feel more confident each time you drive.
Our certified technicians never pressure you into unnecessary services. We treat you like we treat our friends, and your car as our own! Sit back and relax while we solve your vehicle’s issues and ensure your vehicle is a well-oiled, smooth-running machine.
Oil System Cleaning
You know it’s important to change your car’s oil regularly, but what about the entire oil system?
As time goes on, sludge, corrosion and varnish accumulate inside your engine. A full oil system cleaning breaks up and removes these deposits, keeping your vehicle in good working order.
Here’s what happens:
- Motor oil breaks down when it’s met with heat and stress.
- When that happens, it collects in your vehicle’s oil pan, resulting in a thick, sticky and potentially damaging buildup of sludge.
- This sludge can spread over your oil screens and hide inside the tubes of your vehicle’s oil system.
- If neglected for too long, lubricating oil can't flow freely, which may result in serious damage to your vehicle over time.
At Scappoose Xpress Lube, we recommend a full oil system cleaning every 9,000 miles.
What We Use:
The Mighty VS7 Oil System Cleaner is our favorite tool to use in a good oil system cleaning. It’s a petroleum-based formula which helps dislodge sludge deposits in your vehicle’s crankcase, after which the dissolved contaminants are easily removed along with the used oil and oil filter.
Our oil system cleaner helps your engine run better for longer.
Fuel System Cleaning
Your vehicle’s fuel filter, fuel injectors, and fuel pump make up the fuel system. These parts help fuel flow from the gas tank through the fuel injector to the engine.
The bad news is, debris such as dirt and grit can slip into the fuel system over time, lowering your vehicle’s performance.
If your car feels “sluggish”, seems to be putting out more emissions or if it’s using up more fuel than it used to, it’s a good sign that your fuel system needs a good cleaning. The longer you go without cleaning, the worse these problems may get as the fuel system clogs up with debris.
We recommend a top-to-bottom fuel system cleaning for your vehicle every 4,000 to 5,000 miles driven. Modern fuel injection systems begin to lose responsiveness due to the accumulation of fuel-related deposits after about 5,000 miles.
