One Of The Most Important Services
Motor Works considers oil changes one of the most important services we provide our customers. We have been serving DeKalb and Northern Illinois since 1984, and have three ASE Master Certified Specialists on staff.

In some ways, we at Motor Works still live in the past. The old fashioned gas station oil change used to take an hour. They would change the oil and filter, lube the chassis, check tire wear, tread depth, and correct the pressures. The coolant, transmission, brake, differential, power steering, and washer fluids would all be topped up. The vehicle would be road tested, then thoroughly inspected for strengths and weaknesses. Everything would be written down and discussed with the customer. This kept little problems from becoming big, and big problems from becoming catastrophic.

There Is Just No Comparison Between Motor Works And The Ten Minute Quickie Oil Change Places
This is still the way Motor Works performs an oil change. The only difference may be our inspection, it covers a whopping 53 different areas. Well, I guess there’s just a lot more to look at on a modern car. We know nobody else is looking for bald tires, worn belts, loose suspension parts, bulging hoses, leaks, and dozens of other potential breakdown causing problems.
