Oil Change in Dartmouth, MA

Visit our Dartmouth service center for regular Kia oil changes

At our Dartmouth service center, our team is ready to keep your Kia sedan or crossover in excellent condition. They can perform a variety of services ranging from basic to more in-depth, and one of the most common services they performance is the oil change. We'll go over oil change information as well as how to check engine oil from the convenience of your Swansea driveway.

The Importance Of Oil Changes

An oil change appointment is straightforward, but it doesn't mean that you should skip it. Bypassing this crucial appointment means your engine oil will start to get dirty and gunky, and thus it won't lubricate or cool the crucial components as well. Things can go from being a fairly inexpensive service to a costly repair!

So, how often do you need to come in? Every Kia vehicle is a bit different and it depends on if you use conventional oil or synthetic oil, but you typically come in around 7,500 miles or even 10,000 miles in select cases. That's right: throw out the old 3,000-mile rule! Check your model's service manual to see its schedule, and if you lease and don't put a ton of miles on your Kia as you drive around Raynham and Bourne, come in at least once a year, even if you don't hit the mileage mark.

Checking Your Kia's Engine Oil

Knowing how to change your oil is a nice skill, but if you'd rather leave it to us we understand! You can still take proactive measures in monitoring your engine oil, that way the service light doesn't catch you by surprise. Here's how you check your oil.

  • Turn the car off and let the oil settle, which will take about five to ten minutes
  • Pop the hood, find and remove the dipstick, and then wipe it on a cloth
  • Once clean, push the dipstick back into its slot, wait a few seconds, and then remove it
  • Check to see if the engine oil is between the two markers on the dipstick
  • After checking, make sure you push the dipstick fully back in

If the oil doesn't line up and you're starting to approach your oil change appointment, schedule a time to come into our dealership.
