How Often Should I Change My Oil?

How Often Should I Change My Oil?

Our Technicians Are Here to Help!

In order to remove some of the mystery surrounding automotive maintenance timelines, the Service Department at Fuccillo Kia of Port Charlotte is here to bring you up to speed on how often you should change your oil. That way, instead having to simply rely on guesswork, you’ll know exactly when your reliable ride is due for this type of care. If you have any remaining questions after reading this overview, feel free to contact us over the phone or by completing the Ask a Tech form!

Our Recommended Timeline

Although this range can vary depending on several factors, we typically suggest that clients stop by for an oil change every three to six months, or about every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. By having this vital fluid swapped out for a fresh supply, you’ll be able to keep your engine clean and healthy, so your vehicle continues to perform at an optimal level. However, you should be aware that trucks and SUVs that do a lot of towing and hauling will likely require more frequent visits, whereas smaller vehicles that are used less often might not need to come by every six months. That being said, you’ll want to visit us at least once a year even if you don’t accumulate 3,000 miles.

What Makes Oil Important?

So, what makes regular oil changes important in the first place? Essentially, this fluid acts your powertrain’s primary lubricant to ensure that its multiple moving mechanical components can all operate freely. As time goes on and your supply of oil becomes congealed with grime and other combustion byproducts, it loses its ability to perform its role as ably, resulting in increased friction, heat, and wear. In the short term, this might simply reduce your fuel economy, whereas neglecting it for a long time could result in permanent engine damage and costly repairs.

Visit Us Today!

Thankfully, when you place your trust in the hands of the technicians at Fuccillo Kia of Port Charlotte, your car will be in exceptional care.

Then, we’ll get right to work!

BOB WALDREN was amazing. With just a few questions he picked out the perfect Sportage for me. He made the whole buying experience easy, fun and I ended up with a vehicle that was even better suited for me than my original idea. He was attentive and explained the vehicle features in detail so i knew how to use the technology. Every detail was attended to for me. It was truly an easy, nonstressful experience. Bob and the whole team I worked with couldn't have done anything better. It is a great dealership with great staff!
