I needed an inspection on my car. Everywhere I went they were either booked until next week or it was a three to four hour wait. So I decided to come to Morehead. I immediately saw this place and decided okay it's worth a try. We pulled in the lady came and waited on us right away. Told us there were two other vehicles ahead of us which at this point we just decided okay we need an inspection done today. Needless to say we were in and out of there within 30 to 40 minutes. Definitely quick service the staff was friendly. I've decided from now on this is where I will go for my oil changes and inspections. Happy New Year everyone

About express care morehead city

Valvoline Express Care of MOREHEAD CITY provides fast oil changes, with no appointments necessary, powered by the brand you can trust - Valvoline. We are located at 4311 ARENDELL ST in MOREHEAD CITY.


At EXPRESS CARE MOREHEAD CITY, we provide a variety of services to help keep your vehicle well-maintained and ready for the road!

Full service oil changes include:
  • Quality Valvoline motor oil
  • New oil filter
  • Lubrication of chassis components according to your vehicle manufacturer's specs
What does oil do for your vehicle?

Valvoline motor oil lubricates engine components and helps stop metal parts from grinding against one another. It also helps stop deposits from forming on engine components by holding contaminants in suspension.

What can go wrong?

Over time, oil gets dirty. When dirt accumulates in oil, it can become more viscous and abrasive, less effective in lubricating and cause more wear to your engine.


How Regular Oil Changes Help Your Vehicle

  • Helps fight the four major causes of engine breakdown: Heat, Deposits, Sludge, Friction
  • Provides engine protection at startup
  • Helps to maximize engine performance
Mileage Interval

Your owner's manual may provide different oil change intervals for both regular driving and severe driving.

Roughly 70% of drivers fall under severe driving conditions. Severe driving conditions include stop-and-go driving, consistent idling, pulling, towing, dusty environment or high or low ambient temperatures*. Always consult your vehicle's owner's manual for your manufacturer's oil change mileage interval recommendation. *Based on Valvoline market research conducted in 2014

Choosing The Right Oil Change Products

It's important to choose the right oil for your vehicle. Valvoline offers Conventional, Synthetic Blend and Full Synthetic motor oils in many viscosity grades to meet your manufacturer recommendations.

Keep Your Engine Working Efficiently

Vehicle engines require a specific air-to-fuel ratio to operate properly. Over time, air filters can get clogged with dirt and debris, leading to restricted airflow into the engine. With reduced air flow, an engine can be stressed and lose performance.

Benefits Of Engine Air Filter Replacement

Our air filter service replaces your air filter — helping to clean the air flowing to your engine, which can improve performance. Please remember to consult your owner’s manual for any specific manufacturer recommendations.

Mileage Interval For Cabin Air Filter Replacement

Many vehicle manufacturers recommend this service to maintain vehicle performance. Please consult your owner's manual for specific manufacturer recommendations.

There are few things more dangerous than operating your vehicle without having clear visibility through your windshield. Experts can replace your wiper blades in just a few minutes with high-quality, Valvoline wiper blades designed for your vehicle.

Driving with burnt out headlamp or taillamp bulbs can be dangerous and illegal. Replacing these burnt out bulbs helps improve visibility on the road.

Deposit buildup can block the flow of antifreeze to your engine, leading to overheating, freezing, rust, corrosion and inconvenient expensive breakdown.

Benefits Of Radiator & Cooling System Service

Replacing coolant when recommended by your vehicle's manufacturer will help minimize your risk of cooling system (radiator) failure and expensive repairs.

A Cooling System Service using Valvoline Professional Series Cooling System products:

  • Provides additional protection from engine overheating by using advanced detergents to thoroughly clean the radiator
  • Adds sealers to help prevent leaks
Mileage Interval For Radiator & Cooling System Fluid Replacement

Many vehicle manufacturers recommend fluid replacement at regular intervals to maintain vehicle performance. Please consult your owner's manual for specific manufacturer recommendations.

Differentials deliver the power from transmission to wheels. Extreme high operating temperatures can cause thermal breakdown of the differential fluid, leading to a loss of lubrication and deposit formation. This can cause gears to grind while leaving behind metal shavings and other debris.

Benefits Of Differential & Transfer Case Fluid Service

Our Valvoline Differential and Transfer Case Services (Gearboxes) use Valvoline Professional Series products that are thermally stable and help remove deposits – while working to keep new ones from forming. This helps to ensure proper gear lubrication.

Mileage Interval

Many vehicle manufacturers recommend fluid replacement at regular intervals to maintain vehicle performance. Please consult your owner’s manual for specific manufacturer recommendations.

Deposits in your fuel system can cause blockages that lead to lost acceleration, rough idling and hesitation.

Benefits Of Fuel & Air Service

Fuel System Service using Valvoline Professional Series products:

  • Helps restore power and performance by using advanced detergents to thoroughly clean the system
  • Removes deposits, dirt and sludge
  • This service can be performed on both gasoline and diesel engines

Please remember to consult your owner's manual for any specific manufacturer recommendations.

Your tires are extremely important for safely operating your vehicle. Whether you still have the original tires you bought with your vehicle or you have invested in new tires, they are worth maintaining to help minimize tire wear.

Benefits Of Tire Rotation Service

Rotating your tires regularly – approximately every other oil change – helps:

  • Maximize the life of your tires
  • Prolong the tread wear and promote even wear
  • Improve the ride and handling of your car or truck

Please remember to consult your owner's manual for any specific manufacturer recommendations.

Most auto manufacturers recommend rotating your tires at regularly scheduled intervals. Please consult your owner's manual for specific manufacturer recommendations.
