When to Get a Kia Oil Change


Whether you are driving a new or used Kia, you’ll want to make sure that it’s running at its maximum capacity on Dublin roads. The best way to do this is by getting a Kia oil change and having your oil changed regularly. Although you’re probably wondering, “How do I know what type of oil my car needs?” or “How long does an oil change take?” Read on to learn more about how often to change oil and additional oil change tips with the service pros at Celebration Kia. 

How Often to Change Oil: General Guidelines 

Generally, the best time to change your oil is in between the 7,500 to 10,000 interval, but ultimately you should change your oil depending on your vehicle model and your driving habits. 

For example, if you are an SUV driver who uses your automobile more often due to work or travel, you may need your vehicle to a Lewis Center body shop sooner. You’ll also want to schedule your Kia oil change sooner if you are involved in any of the following activities:

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

How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

A question we get often is “how long does an oil change take?” Typically an oil change takes about an hour if taken into a local mechanic or service center. However, if you call ahead, you may get a quicker and more expedient oil change experience.

Additional Oil Changes Tips

When your Kia is due for an oil change, you’ll want to keep the following tips in mind to make the most out of your visit to our Columbus service center:

  • Even if your car isn’t driven frequently, you should have an oil change at least twice a year due to the fact that oil breaks down over time.
  • Whenever you change your oil, you’ll also need to change your oil filter as well. 
  • Whenever you are confronted with the question “What type of oil does my car need?” you should consult your owner’s manual. The owner’s manual will be able to tell you if you need conventional or synthetic oil.
