Oil Change

In addition to full-service oil changes, at Dick Adams Automotive we also offer battery service, check engine light diagnostic and PCV valve replacement.

So when you come into Dick Adams Automotive for an oil change, you get a visual inspection of your car and a reminder for recommended services so you can avoid a total failure. And remember that your service specialist can help you work out a maintenance and repair plan for your family car, prioritizing and scheduling the work to make sure you and your family are safe, and avoid expensive breakdowns.

Salinas people generally accept that many things in life require regular maintenance: their teeth, clothes, yards and so on, but CA car owners often don’t apply the idea of maintenance to their vehicles.


If you never brush your teeth or go to the dentist, you’ll become painfully aware of your neglect when you get a big cavity. Once the damage is done, we learn our important lesson and start to take better care of things.

Unfortunately, Salinas people too often learn the hard automotive lesson when they bring their vehicle to Dick Adams Automotive on a tow truck. So many times, a little routine maintenance would have prevented an expensive breakdown.

So how do Salinas car owners get into the habit of taking care of their family cars? It’s so easy to forget; not like cutting the grass which you see it every time you pull in the driveway.

Here’s something that will help: The key to good family car maintenance starts with the oil change. Think about it – when you go in for a full-service oil change in Salinas, your knowledgeable Dick Adams Automotive service specialist will check all your fluids. If one of them is low, he can look for the reason why. If your serpentine belt is worn, he’ll see it and let you know. Corroded battery cable – they’ve got you covered. And they’ll check to see if your manufacturer has recommended any important services at your current mileage.
