Changing Your Oil
Changing the oil in your vehicle at regular intervals will help you to make sure that everything is properly cared for and that all of the engine parts are lubricated like they should be. A regular schedule of oil changes every three months or every 3,000 to 5,000 miles will ensure engine function and help to be sure that there is no excessive friction that can lead to the potential for damage. Engines are made up of moving parts that are constantly rubbing together, so a lack of lubrication can cause major issues. During the oil change, your local Bloomington Kia dealer will take a look at your vehicle, remove the old oil, change the oil filter, and then pump in fresh oil.
What Happens if You Don’t Change Your Oil
The further that you drive without an oil change and fresh oil, the more damage that can be caused to the engine. In addition to that, the chances are good that your vehicle will be less efficient and using more fuel than usual. Old oil can become gummy and fail to work as it should be, and a lack of oil can cause the engine to seize up and fail. When you stop to think about it, the cost of regular oil changes will be far less than having to think about major engine repairs due to the damage caused.
