Oil Change Instructions

  • Check Oil Level Regularly.
  • Change oil & filter every 4,000 miles.
  • Lube all grease-able tie rods, ball joints, shafts, universal joints and suspension parts.
  • Check gear lube in front and rear differentials, top off gear lube - applies to 4wd and rear drive vehicles.
  • Check transfer case fluids (4wd) top off when necessary.
  • Do not flush brake fluids. Do not flush power steering fluid.
  • We do not recommend paying extra for “high mileage” oil.
  • Do not flush transmissions with solvent based cleaners.
  • We do recommend transmission fluid & filter exchanges.
  • Transmission flushes without solvent based cleaners are ok if the transmission has a metal screen instead of a replaceable filter.
  • Some vehicles require synthetic blend oil.
  • Some Suvs & Pickups take between 6 to 7 quarts of oil.
  • 07 and newer GM V8’s should have a factory oil filter.
  • Get a second opinion on extra repairs and fluid flushes.
  • Mail or drop off a copy of your oil change receipt to:

Grand Chute Auto 300 N. Lynndale Dr. Appleton 54914 or e-mail receipt to craig@grandchuteauto.com to keep limited warranty coverage valid.
