Oil / Fuel System Cleaning Springfield OR
No Appointment Necessary.
Why Clean Your Oil System?
Cleaning your vehicle's oil system clean is one of the keys to keeping your car, truck, or SUV's engine in good working order.
You know the importance of regularly changing your oil, but did you know the entire oil system needs regular maintenance, too?
Sludge, corrosion, gums, and varnish build up inside your engine over time. This collection of harmful deposits is never completely removed when your oil is changed.
Your vehicle will benefit from an oil system cleaning, which helps break up and remove deposits and corrosion.
Benefits of an Oil System Cleaning
Using the right oil system cleaner will increase the effectiveness of your next oil change.
As motor oil breaks down due to heat and stress, it collects in your vehicle’s oil pan. What results is a thick, hard to remove and potentially damaging sludge buildup. This sludge can cover your oil screens and hide in tubes within your vehicle’s oil system. If neglected long enough, lubricating oil can't flow freely and the result can be serious damage to your vehicle's engine.
What We Use
At Springfield Xpress Lube we use Mighty VS7 Oil System Cleaner. It’s a petroleum-based formula which helps safely loosen and dislodge sludge deposits and other contaminants in your vehicle’s crankcase. Once the oil system cleaning process is complete, the dissolved contaminants are easily removed along with the used oil and oil filter.
Our oil system cleaner promotes smoother performance and can help your engine run better for longer.
It’s the best choice to use for any conventional oil change, including full and semi-synthetic oils. At Springfield Xpress Lube, we recommend an oil system cleaning every 9,000 miles.

Fuel System Cleaning
Your vehicle’s fuel filter, fuel injectors, and fuel pump are all part of what’s known as the fuel system. Together, they help fuel flow from your vehicle’s tank to the fuel injector and into the engine. When working properly, your car, truck or SUV’s fuel system makes sure the right mixture of fuel and air is used to power the engine.
Unfortunately, dirt, debris and grit can make their way into the fuel system, lowering the performance of your engine. This can also lead to damaged engine parts or even complete engine failure.
Does Your Vehicle Need a Fuel System Cleaning?
At Springfield Xpress Lube, we recommend a fuel system cleaning about every 4,000 to 5,000 miles. After about 5,000 miles, modern fuel injection systems begin to lose their responsiveness due to the accumulation of fuel-related deposits.
Is your car:
- Feeling “sluggish”?
- Having trouble accelerating as fast as it used to?
- Using more fuel?
- Starting slowly?
- Putting out more emissions?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, your vehicle might benefit from a fuel system cleaning. Remember, the longer you go without cleaning your fuel system, the worse these problems will become as more grit and deposits build up in critical parts of your fuel system.
Benefits of a Fuel System Cleaning
Deposits and contaminants which build up in your fuel system usually lead to driveability problems such as surging, stalling, hesitation, loss of power and a decrease in fuel economy. A fuel system cleaning removes these deposits quickly and easily, helping your vehicle maintain its original performance. Regular fuel system cleanings will help you keep your vehicle running smoothly.
What We Use:
At Springfield Xpress Lube, we use Cleaner Mighty VS7 Fuel System Cleaner, a detergent/dispersant formula designed to rapidly clean deposits in the fuel system.
