Oil Change and Essential Maintenance

Three Choices: No Appointment Needed

Regular oil changes are essential to keep your engine clean and properly lubricated, allowing your vehicle to run more efficiently. At your Quick Lane® Tire & Auto Center, we’re Ready To Serve™ with three great oil change choices that help you get the maximum value. Each offers high-quality oil and filter products from Motorcraft® that can help improve your gas mileage and extend the life of your vehicle.

Good: Oil and Filter Change

Quick Lane® always uses premium-quality Motorcraft® Synthetic Blend oil with specially designed performance additives. It helps minimize damage-causing deposits, rust and corrosion, and provides excellent wear protection. 

Better: The Works™

You get a synthetic blend oil change, tire rotation and pressure check, brake inspection, battery test, vehicle checkup and much more.

Best: Vehicle Specific Scheduled Maintenance

The best way to take care of your vehicle is to follow the recommendations in your vehicle's maintenance schedule, found in your owner’s manual and available on for certain vehicles. Quick Lane can take care of it all while you wait.

How to Get Better Gas Mileage

Proper vehicle maintenance doesn't just help extend the life of your vehicle –  it can help you achieve better fuel efficiency. Check out a few tips about how to help boost your mpg and fuel economy.

  • Make sure your tires are properly inflated. Making sure your tire pressure isn't too low – or too high – can improve your fuel efficiency by up to 3.3 percent*
  • Get the recommended grade of motor oil. Quick Lane® offers high-quality oil and filter products from Motorcraft.® Using the one that's right for your vehicle can help improve fuel efficiency by up to 2 percent
  • Get an engine tune-up. Making sure all systems are running right can help improve fuel efficiency by up to 4 percent

Tips that can help boost your gas mileage

  • Avoid aggressive driving. Constant speed changes and quick stops and starts waste a lot of fuel. Taking it easy behind the wheel can improve your gas mileage by as much as 33 percent
  • Remove excess weight. You can improve fuel efficiency by about 2 percent for every 100 lbs. of weight you remove from your vehicle
  • Use cruise control. It's almost always more fuel-efficient to travel at a constant speed
  • Avoid idling. It's more fuel-efficient to turn off your engine when you're waiting in your vehicle
  • Don't speed. Gas mileage usually decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph

Tire Buying Tips and Tire Maintenance

Looking for the best price on a new set of name-brand tires? A quick tire rotation or tire inspection with no appointment? Quick Lane® is Ready To Serve™. Our factory-trained experts are committed to making sure your tires are safe and ready for the road. And we have seven name-brand tires for you to choose from, including Michelin, Goodyear, Continental Tire and more.

Fast Fact

Rotating your tires helps to distribute wear more evenly, so you can get more life out of them.

How to Spot Worn Tires

Properly inflated tires are crucial to your vehicle’s handling and safety. Regular tire rotations help distribute wear more evenly and can help you get more life out of them. But do you know what to look for when your tires are worn? Quick Lane® is Ready To Serve™ and can help you choose a new set of tires.

Stop by if you notice:

  • Tire tread depth of less than 3/32" or tire treads that don't reach the top of Lincoln's head on an upside-down penny
  • Punctures, cuts or snags in your tire tread or sidewall
  • Sudden loss of tire pressure
  • Your tire wear indicator is visible
  • Sudden vibration when driving
  • Poor handling or traction on slippery surfaces

How to Change a Flat Tire

If you don't have your cell phone handy to call a tow truck or aren't able to wait, here's what to do.

Consult your vehicle owner's manual for details specific to your vehicle, such as the location of the spare and jack kit. Be aware of your surroundings. If you do not feel safe, never hesitate to call the local police for help.

  1. Remove the spare tire and jack from your vehicle. Check the inflation level of your spare. If its pressure is too low, you'll need to find a place where you can inflate it, or call a tow truck.
  2. Your jack kit should include a tire iron for removing the lug nuts. Use it to loosen the lug nuts on the flat tire, but don't remove them yet. If you need to use a lot of force to get them loose, you don't want to do it while the vehicle is already jacked up.
  3. Block the other tires to make sure the vehicle doesn't roll.
  4. Raise the corner with the flat tire high enough off the ground to put the spare tire on. Avoid raising the vehicle any higher than you need to.
  5. Finish removing the lug nuts from the flat tire and pull it off.
  6. Put the spare tire on the vehicle.
  7. Replace the lug nuts, but don't tighten them yet.
  8. Lower the vehicle by turning the jack in reverse.
  9. Tighten the lug nuts. After a few turns, rotate clockwise to tighten the next lug nut. Repeat this process until each lug nut is securely in place.
  10.  Stop by your local Quick Lane® Tire & Auto Center for a replacement tire as soon as you can. If you have to use highways to get there, keep your vehicle under 55 mph and use your hazard lights. Most spare tires are not designed to handle high speeds for long periods of time.


Help prevent uneven tire wear with a wheel alignment

Today’s bumpy roads and overgrown potholes can throw off the alignment of your vehicle, causing it to pull to the left or right rather than traveling in a straight line. This can lead to uneven tire wear and reduce your gas mileage. The solution? Stop by your local Quick Lane® for a road test and professional wheel alignment. Our factory-trained experts are Ready To Serve™ – helping to restore proper alignment, improve handling and make your vehicle run more efficiently.

Brake Services

Your brakes are your vehicle's most important safety feature. They may be stopping your vehicle, but that doesn't mean they're working their best. In order to stop your vehicle safely, brakes are designed to slowly wear as you use them. That's why regular maintenance of your brake system is so important. Quick Lane® is ready to provide quality service while you wait. We offer high-quality brake products and brake fluid from Motorcraft.®

How to spot worn brakes – when to replace or repair

The more you use them, the faster they wear out. Your brake pads or shoes are designed to keep the metal of your calipers from grinding against - and damaging – the metal of your rotors. This is not a built-in flaw, but simply a result of brakes working normally and safely. If you’re hearing a grinding or squeaking noise, it’s time for an inspection. 

Look and listen. Then stop by Quick Lane® if you notice:

  • Squeaking or grinding
  • A burning odor
  • A hard-to-press or "squishy" pedal
  • Shuddering or vibration in your steering wheel
  • Rusting or flaking in your brakes or rotors
  • Your brake system warning light goes on

Battery Fact

Jump-Starting a Battery

If you have to jump start your battery, it’s an inconvenience, but all you need is a little help from your friends. If you’d rather not call a tow truck and you have a willing helper, here’s how to get some life back into your battery. Pay close attention to the connection order. It’s one of the most common and overlooked causes for unsuccessful jump starts.

Step-by-step guide

You’ll need jumper cables. If you don’t have any in your vehicle, make sure your helper brings them. Have your helper park close enough to your vehicle, allowing you to connect the jumper cables to the batteries with plenty of slack. Most cables are about six feet long. Check your owner’s manual for your vehicle battery location and terminal placement.

  1. Open both vehicle hoods and locate the batteries.
  2. Remove any terminal covers and corrosion.
  3. Attach the positive (red) jumper cable to the positive (red) terminal of the dead battery. Make sure both metal clamps are firmly in contact with the terminal.
  4. Attach the other end of the positive (red) jumper cable to the positive (red) terminal of the assisting battery.
  5. Attach the negative (black) jumper cable to the negative (black) terminal of the assisting battery.
  6. Attach the other end of the negative (black) jumper cable to an exposed metal part of the disabled vehicle's engine, away from the battery and the carburetor/fuel-injection system.
  7. Start the assisting vehicle's engine.
  8. Start the disabled vehicle's engine.
  9. Allow both vehicles to run connected for about three minutes.
  10. Leave the jump-started vehicle running and disconnect the cables in the reverse order that they were attached and close the hoods.
  11. Keep the jump-started vehicle's engine running for about a half hour to allow the battery to fully charge.
  12. Visit your local Quick Lane® to get the jump-started battery tested or replaced as soon as you can.

Spotting battery problems before a jump start

A smart way to avoid jump starting a dead battery? Learn the warning signs of an aging or worn battery. Stop by your nearby Quick Lane if you notice any of the following battery symptoms:

  • Excessive corrosion around the battery terminals or cables
  • Bulging or deformity of the battery casing
  • Difficulty starting your engine
  • Consistent electrical system problems

During the battery test, you can ask your Quick Lane expert for a full vehicle checkup report to help you monitor your vehicle systems. It's a great way to keep up on all your vehicle maintenance needs.
