If you’re driving a vehicle with an internal combustion engine, you’ll need oil changes on a regular basis. After all, oil keeps the engine lubricated; if you allow the old oil to circulate in your engine, you may end up decreasing its longevity or even damaging the engine. When you’re ready for your next oil change, head to Bommarito Toyota. While you can find several quick-lube oil change shops around Florissant or St. Charles, Bommarito Toyota offers you so much more. You’ll find a well-equipped service center here, staffed by Toyota-certified experts who know the ins and outs of your car, truck, or SUV. They’ll work quickly and skillfully, using only OEM parts, oil and filters that have been made or approved by Toyota. Check out the different types of oil changes we offer below.
Conventional oil changes use mineral-based oil made from refined crude oil. When you use Toyota-approved conventional oil, it does the job well, and it’s the cheapest oil change option. However, conventional oil doesn’t last as long as others, so you’ll have to have oil changes more frequently.
The gold standard of engine oil is synthetic oil. Its lower viscosity, even molecular structure, and detergent additives make this type of oil more effective and longer-lasting than conventional and semi-synthetic oil. It costs more than a conventional oil change, but the extra engine protection and the increased time between service can make up for it.
Semi-synthetic oil combines the pros and cons of conventional and synthetic oil by blending both. The added synthetic oil makes it last longer than conventional oil, but its conventional oil base means that it’s not as expensive as full-synthetic oil. This combination of positive features makes this a popular oil change choice, but it still requires more frequent oil changes than full synthetic.
Diesel oil is different from either standard or conventional oil. While Toyota doesn’t currently make diesel engines in the United States, we’ll be glad to perform an oil change on your diesel-powered vehicle.
