Your vehicle is powered by an internal combustion engine (unless it’s fully electric), and that means lots of parts moving incredibly fast. Those parts generate a lot of heat and friction. Engine oil lubricates those parts, lessening friction and ensuring the parts run smoothly without overheating.
Vehicles need to have their oil changed because those
fast-moving parts break down the oil, making it far less effective at cooling and lubricating the engine. Also, moisture and contaminants can build up in the oil and potentially damage your engine. New oil gets everything running as it should again.
There’s more than one type of “oil change.” From Conventional to Synthetic, Kwik Kar can handle them all!
A Conventional Oil Change is ideal for an everyday newer vehicle, up to 75,000 miles.
Is your vehicle getting up there in age/miles? This oil change is the perfect blend for your seasoned engine.
This hybrid oil blend is perfect for vehicles who want the benefits of Synthetic, but not the cost.
A Premium Oil Change, primarily for high-performance vehicles. This is the top of the line.
Kwik Kar can even accommodate your everyday Diesel vehicles. Just ask!
That answer isn’t as simple as it used to be, and depends on a lot of factors like what kind of vehicle you drive, how often you drive, and/or in what conditions you drive. Checking your owner’s manual for guidelines is always a good idea, and late-model vehicles often come with oil life monitors that will signal when it’s time for a change. The basic rule of thumb is that you should have your oil changed every 5,000 miles or as directed by your owner’s manual.
