Answering Your Questions About Oil Changes

Oil changes are among the most common vehicle maintenance services here at Northtown Kia. And yet, it's not always clear what it entails and why it's important.

How do oil changes help my car?

Engine oil is critical to the long-term durability of your car's engine. The fluid helps lubricate the numerous moving metal parts inside the power plant. Without oil, your engine will overheat very quickly due to friction. This can cause devastating, costly damage. Oil helps keep this from happening, but it doesn't last forever. The longer oil is used, the dirtier and less effective it gets. That's why it's important to change your engine oil at regular intervals. Staying on top of these intervals can help your car run better and longer.

How often should I get my oil changed?

Oil change intervals can vary by make and model. A general rule for Kia models is to change engine oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. However, the best way to stay on top of oil change intervals is to consult with a Kia technician. You can do just that at our service center.
