Why Change Your Oil on a Regular Basis?
Engines have moving parts that create friction and therefore heat. Oil lubricates the engine to reduce friction and also absorbs heat. Over time, oil breaks down and becomes less effective. Oil can also become dirty, and you can even lose oil. A regular Kia oil change in Mesa maximizes engine lubrication and cooling. Consequently, it extends engine lifespan and improves gas mileage.
How Often Should You Schedule an Oil Change?
This is one of the most common questions our technicians field at our service center in Mesa Arizona serving drivers in and near near Gilbert Tempe Phoenix. The answer depends. While your vehicle is under warranty, you should schedule your Kia oil change per the requirements of that agreement. There are likely three core requirements: time, mileage and oil type. If you are out of warranty and your vehicle has an integrated oil life monitor, change your oil per its recommendation, and be sure to use the oil advised by your manufacturer since those are the characteristics to which the monitor is calibrated. For everyone else, it will depend on how you use your vehicle. The rule of thumb—every 3,000 to 5,000 miles—is never bad for your vehicle, but discuss this with your automotive technician.
How Can You Tell If You Oil Is Bad?
Our automotive service center serving drivers in and near near Gilbert Tempe Phoenix recommends changing your oil on a schedule. By doing so, you never have to worry about whether your oil is bad. That said, let us consider some surefire signs that it is time to schedule a Kia oil change in Mesa.
Active Oil Light
Note that vehicles usually have several oil indicators. There are lights to indicate that the oil is cold, that oil pressure is too low and that the vehicle is overheating. Temporary activation of indicators is normal and often part of the system check. However, if any of these lights blink continuously or activate and remain activated, it is time to visit your local service center and have the oil inspected.
If you notice any kind of burning smell particularly from under the hood, this can be an indication of oil leakage. Burning smells can indicate a wide range of automotive troubles, but minor oil leaks are by far the most common. Inspect the vehicle to determine if it is safe to drive. If it is, you should drive the vehicle to our service center for a Kia oil change as soon as possible. If you are not confident that the vehicle is safe to drive, contact us, and we can tow the vehicle or provide another solution.
If you see oil on your driveway or you suspect a leak because you are losing oil, it is time to schedule an oil change and inspection. During the inspection, your technician can diagnose what is causing the leak and correct it. Worn oil seals and faulty oil pans are common culprits.
