Oil Changes

Serving Sarasota Since 1978

Most people think of an oil change as something they can put off & drive farther than the time and/or mileage that is recommended by the manufacturer. Here at Dave's Auto Repair, your local Sarasota oil change center, we know how important the oil change really is. The newer cars have much tighter clearances inside the engine and not only the right weight oil but also the right type of oil is very important to keep your car driving on Sarasota streets for a very long time.

The manufacturers don't just recommend 3,000-mile oil change intervals any longer. Now they have 3750, 5000, and 7500-mile intervals. With the new synthetic oils you can comfortably drive this far but please do not go over their recommendations as the engine will get gummed up & which causes other issues that can be very expensive.  We also perform a 34 point courtesy inspection at the same time to be sure you & yours are safe! Our shop is a full-service shop as well as an expert Sarasota oil change station and we have been proudly serving the Sarasota area for 37 years and counting. Please give us a call or make an appointment online on our home page.






"I dropped into Dave’s without an appointment based on their stellar reviews for an ac repair. Jessica was immediately friendly, professional, and attentive. Based on the diagnosis, they definitely could have overcharged me and taken advantage, but Eric went the extra mile and was able to get my ac working and blowing cold again without even having to replace any parts. In a business where honesty and integrity may not always be the priority, I found that to be the priority at Dave’s. Highly recommended."

"I had been having long term intermittent issues with my Dodge Ram 1500. The battery would randomly discharge entirely. The problem was occurring more and more frequently and the Dodge dealer was stymied. After seeing reviews for Dave's Auto Repair, I called for an appointment and took my truck to them...... Within a few days the problem was diagnosed and the most cost effective repair was done. "
