What is a Heavy Duty Oil Change service?
Lube Stop’s Heavy Duty Oil Change service is the replacement of the engine oil for your heavy duty and medium duty trucks and vehicles. This service aids in reducing friction inside the engine responsible for providing the power these heavy duty vehicles require.
Instead of metal parts grinding on metal parts, the oil creates a protective layer between components. This allows everything to run more smoothly, preventing the engine parts from wearing down prematurely. Also, the reduction in friction helps to lower temperatures inside the engine. And finally, it collects and transports carbon deposits, dirt, or any other foreign matter away from the engine itself.
If your engine oil is dirty or contaminated, it can cause premature wearing down of all the engine’s parts that rely on it. That’s why you have it changed or flushed.
Lube Stop provides this service as needed. To determine if it is needed, we look for signs that the oil is dirty or contaminated. So, a visual inspection to detect pollutants. If they are present, we recommend replacing the oil to the customer. If the customer agrees, then we proceed with the oil change or flush service.
So, always bring any indicators of trouble to the attention of our Lube Stop technicians. These include signs of contaminants or unusual leaking. From there, we will trouble shoot and determine if you need to change or flush your motor oil.
We do all this so you can enjoy the benefits of a reliable heavy duty engine that does not cease or break down due to dirty oil.

Why Do I Need a Heavy Duty Oil Change service?
The Heavy Duty Oil Change service is the replacement, changing or flushing of your engine oil. You need to do this lube change to keep your engine running efficiently for many years. Without this lubricant, your engine could suffer from early wear and tear due to metal on metal grinding and excessive heat. It could also suffer from corrosion build up. So, keep your engine oil clean and full to give it longevity and efficiency.
We do these oil changes so that our heavy duty customers can avoid problems with the engine in their heavy duty vehicles. The oil is an important maintenance item responsible for ensuring your engine works properly. This is because when oil is clean, the engine works better. For example, it provides a protective coating to various moving engine parts to prevent premature wear. And, it helps to keep the engine cool.
So, it is fair to conclude that dirty, contaminated heavy duty engine oil is NOT something you want to ignore.
That’s why we check the oil every visit. We need to make sure that it is clean and functioning as it should. We understand that it costs a little in the short run to change this oil out. But it saves a lot in the long run.
How Often Do I Need It?
The engine oil should be checked each time you have service with Lube Stop. And, of course, we should check it anytime you have observed issues. Your owner’s manual will also advise you to do it at various intervals. Please check your manual.
Also, lean on us at Lube Stop for advice. We use a system of processes called Precision Based Recommendations to help investigate a vehicle’s overall condition. This system of inspection and trouble shooting helps us get a clearer picture of your heavy duty truck as it stands, today. That is because it removes the guess work.

Context for these Services
Your vehicle uses an internal combustion engine. This engine uses the combustion of fuel to power almost everything. This is done when fuel alongside an air oxidizer and spark plugs creates a working fluid flow circuit inside a combustion chamber.
In your internal combustion engine, the expansion of the high-temperature and high-pressure gases produced by combustion applies direct force to some component of the engine. The force is applied typically to pistons, turbine blades, rotors and nozzles. This force moves the component over a distance, transforming chemical energy into useful work.
Typically, your combustion engine is fed with fossil fuels like natural gas or petroleum products such as gasoline, diesel fuel or fuel oil. Your engine is the hub for many things, including those listed below.
- combustion chamber
- cylinder head
- set of spark plugs
- rocker arms
- fuel injectors
- connecting rods
- engine block
- timing system
- timing chain
All these work in unison to power all the other systems within your vehicle. Without a fully functioning engine, everything else suffers. So, let us at Lube Stop keep your engine functioning and everything else that relies on it.
