Oil Changes

Regular oil changes are like the heartbeat of your vehicle – essential for its health and longevity. At BDR Automotive, serving the friendly neighborhoods of Holliston, Milford, Ashland, Medway, Millis, Bellingham, Framingham, Hopkinton, Natick, and Sherborn, we don’t just see oil changes as a mundane task. Instead, it’s a golden opportunity to give your ride the TLC it deserves and ensure it’s in tip-top shape.

Starting with the Essentials: Oil Changes

Oil changes, as you might know, involves draining out the old, tired oil, swapping out the oil filter for a fresh one, and filling your engine with a fresh batch of oil up to its optimum level. These basic steps are like a goodnight kiss for your car’s engine, ensuring it sleeps well and wakes up ready to roar.

But Here's the Twist: A Vehicle Check-Up prior to Oil Changes

When you roll into BDR Automotive for oil changes, you’re not just treating your car; you’re giving it a thorough check-up. Picture it as your car’s annual physical – a chance to catch any sneaky issues before they become big, expensive headaches.

Our experienced mechanics will go the extra mile, checking various aspects of your vehicle to make sure everything is humming along smoothly and that there are no weird surprises down the road. Here’s what’s included in our vehicle check-up:



We'll make sure all your lights are shining bright – headlights, taillights, brake lights, and turn signals. Good lighting is essential for your safety and others on the road.



A working horn is your voice on the road. We'll give it a honk to ensure it's ready to speak up in emergencies.

Windshield Wipers

Crystal-clear visibility is your ticket to safe driving, especially when rain or snow is in the mix. We'll inspect your windshield wipers to ensure they sweep away obstacles with grace.

HVAC System

Comfort is king while driving. We'll make sure your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system is in tip-top shape, keeping you comfy throughout your journey.

Road Test

Our skilled mechanics will take your vehicle for a spin to pick up on any strange noises, vibrations, or handling quirks that might slip past a stationary inspection. This step helps us spot potential issues before they escalate.


We'll peek under the hood and check your essential fluids, including coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid, and transmission fluid. These fluids keep your car's vital systems running smoothly.

Hoses and Belts

Cracked or worn-out hoses and belts can lead to engine woes. We'll give them a once-over to catch any signs of wear and tear.

Air Filters

Your engine needs to breathe easy. If your air filter is clogged, it's like giving your car asthma. We'll check it and replace it if needed.


Nobody likes a car that leaves a trail. We'll diligently look for any leaks underneath your vehicle, big or small, and patch them up.

By giving these crucial components of your car a thorough once-over, we’re in a prime position to spot and address any concerns early. This proactive approach means you can avoid those major repair bills down the line and keep cruising the streets of Holliston and its neighboring towns – Milford, Ashland, Medway, Millis, Bellingham, Framingham, Hopkinton, Natick, and Sherborn – with peace of mind.

Regular oil changes aren’t just about your engine; they’re about ensuring your entire vehicle’s well-being. At BDR Automotive, we take the opportunity to pamper your car from bumper to bumper, making sure it’s road-ready and reliable.

The downsides of not getting oil changes for your car

Engine Troubles

Picture this: your car’s engine is like a well-oiled machine, and the oil is its lifeblood. If you skip those regular oil changes, that lifeblood gets dirty and clogged. As a result, your engine parts can start to wear out faster, which can lead to costly engine damage and poor performance.

Thirsty Engine

Think of your engine as a thirsty beast. When the oil gets old and dirty, it’s like giving your engine a glass of sludgy water instead of a fresh, cool drink. Your engine has to work harder, which means it sucks up more gas just to keep moving. That translates to more money spent on fuel for the same trip.

Overheating Headaches

Your engine oil also plays a role in keeping your car’s temperature in check. If it’s not up to the task due to infrequent oil changes, your engine can get too hot. Overheating is a recipe for disaster, potentially causing serious engine damage or even leaving you stranded on the side of the road.

Costly Repairs

Perhaps the most painful downside is the potential for major repairs. Neglecting those oil changes can lead to more significant issues down the road. Repairing or replacing an engine is a wallet-draining experience that most of us would rather avoid.

Don’t wait until that tiny rattle becomes a big headache. Schedule your next oil change with us and experience the difference.
