When to Get a Kia Oil Change

Owning a Kia is a point of pride and many Henderson and Boulder City drivers seek to take care of their vehicle in the best way possible. However, not all of us are gearheads. So, when we want to care for our vehicles, we may have a lot of questions like:

  • How often to change my oil?
  • How long does an oil change take?
  • What type of oil does my car need?
  • What is the Kia oil change price?
  • Are there Kia oil change coupons?

Since we commonly hear these questions in our service center, we have put together a handy guide to better serve our Pahrump community. If you are wondering how often to change oil, some auto experts recommend an oil change every 3,000 miles. However, new advancements in auto tech and performance features can allow many vehicles to travel between 7,500 and 10,000 miles in between oil changes. Learn more about the Kia oil change recommendations with Jim Marsh Kia’s guide today!

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

Under normal driving conditions, the 7,500 to 10,000-mile range for suggested oil change frequency is reliable. If you utilize a truck or SUV for more heavy-duty tasks, bringing your vehicle in for more frequent oil changes is prudent. We offer tons of budget-friendly service specials to help drivers who may visit us more than most save a few extra dollars. If you regularly use your Kia for any of the following, you’ll want to visit us for an oil change on a more regular basis:

  • Off-roading
  • Commercial use
  • Racing
  • Heavy towing

How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

The great news about oil changes is that our skilled technicians can handle them quickly. Whether you need a Kia Soul oil change to continue your unique driving adventures or a Kia Optima oil change to maintain your reliable commute, we have you covered. Our service techs will typically be able to have you in and out in under an hour, but if you are short on time, contact us and we can schedule a more expeditious appointment!

More Oil Change Tips for Las Vegas Drivers

Whenever you visit us for a Kia oil change we make the process simple for you. With that being said, it is still good to be aware of the following oil change tips:

  • Any vehicle you own should get an oil change at least twice a year, regardless of how often you drive it. Oil breaks down over time even when a vehicle isn’t in use.
  • Make sure your oil filters are replaced each time you get an oil change. Our dealership will be happy to supply you with one if you are doing a DIY oil change.
  • If you are asking, “What type of oil does my car need,” check your owner’s manual. Certain vehicles will require synthetic oil but it will be more expensive.

How to Change Oil on a Car

If you prefer to do things the old fashioned way, changing your oil at home can be a manageable weekend DIY. If you are asking, “How long does an oil change take,” the answer will depend on a variety of factors, including your experience level. However, you should be able to get a Kia Soul oil change done in your own garage in about an hour once you have some practice. Follow these steps to take on the job yourself:

  1. Securely jack your car up with stands or steel ramps.
  2. Navigate beneath your engine and locate the oil drain plug on the bottom of your oil pan. Place your oil basin below and unscrew the plug, allowing up to 15 minutes for the oil to drain. Once that is finished, go ahead and replace the plug.
  3. Remove the oil filter with an appropriate wrench. Place your basin beneath the filter to catch any excess oil that may come out.
  4. This step is critical: Oil the rubber seals on your new filter to ensure the filter is watertight.
  5. Place the new filter in position and tighten by hand.
  6. Next, remove the oil cap and pour in the correct amount of new oil. If you are performing a Kia Optima oil change, you can find the oil level guidelines in your owner’s manual. Make sure to replace the cap once the oil is topped off.
  7. Before you close up shop on your DIY Kia Soul oil change, check your oil level with the dipstick. If it comes up a little low, add another ounce of oil and check again. Once you achieve the proper oil level reading, you’re set!

If an at-home oil change seems a bit out of your wheelhouse, no problem. Get a convenient Kia Optima oil change at Jim Marsh Kia and take advantage of our budget-friendly Kia oil change coupons to save even more off our competitive Kia oil change prices.
