Oil Changes

Random Trivia Fact: Did you know that Auto Clinic of Maryland- Caton Auto Clinic served as the national technical hotline for Jiffy Lube in the 80’s and 90’s which means whenever Jiffy Lube had a problem they called us to fix it? Pretty impressive for an auto repair shop in Catonsville, Md!


Many times oil changes are looked at as just a quick service that anyone could do however, that’s not really the case. What isn’t always recognized are the unintended benefits of having a trained mechanic perform your services instead of a quick service lube tech. If you compare an oil change to a routine teeth cleaning at the dentist the process and benefit is very similar. Any assistant can clean and polish your teeth just like anyone can drain and refill your oil and change the filter. However, at the dental office, the dentist always comes in to check on you afterward which may prevent issues from developing further and causing issues down the road. The same happens when you come to an actual mechanic rather than a quick lube for your oil change.


At (Caton Auto Clinic) (Nelsons Service Center) we make sure your vehicle is ready for travel in and around (Catonsville) (Finksburg and Westminster). When every car comes in for an oil change we also check the condition of the tires, belts, hoses, battery, wipers, fluids, suspension components, steering components, lights, and more. In fact – it’s over a 50-point check that we do complimentary in order to provide you peace of mind, which is priceless.
