Oil Changes

Why are Oil Changes Important?

Motor oil is the lifeblood of your car/truck/suv’s engine. The purpose of the motor oil in your vehicle is to lubricate the engine and keep it cool. Changing your motor oil removes dirt and other particles that cause parts in your vehicle to wear down. Without regular oil changes (the interval varies based on the vehicle and whether you use synthetic or non-synthetic oils), your vehicle is susceptible to possible debilitating engine trouble, inefficient fuel economy, and even compromised safety.

Call on the auto experts at KC Automotive when your vehicle is due for its next oil change. When we change your oil, we also check fluid levels, the battery, tire tread depth and pressure, and by request we can check the brakes, steering, and suspension. Ask your technician for more details.

Choosing the right oil for your vehicle (your KC Automotive expert technician will help):

  • Always change your oil based on vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations for your vehicle
  • Choose the best motor oil based on your vehicle type, age, and expected driving conditions
  • Consider all options, including full synthetic or synthetic blend motor oil for gas savings and longer vehicle life

Today’s full synthetic motor oil and synthetic-mineral motor oil blends are excellent for tough driving conditions such as stop-and-go driving, long distance trips, and towing. Many manufacturers now specify synthetic motor oil for newer car, suv and truck models. You should consult your owner’s manual for oil specifications and maintenance recommendations for your vehicle. If you are unsure or have questions, speak to your KC Automotive technician about the best type and weight of motor oil for your specific vehicle and driving conditions.
