How Important is an Oil Change?

We all know that you need to change your oil every 3000 to 5000 miles.  The question is why?  We all dread having to take time out of our day for something that is preventative rather than an emergency.  Always remember this - an oil change is one of the LEAST expensive things you can do to keep your car on the road.

Simply put, oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle.  You could look at it this way - food is the fuel that keeps your body functioning, but exercise is necessary to keep it in top running condition.  Oil literally keeps many of your engine components functioning and helps reduce the accumulation of carbon from forming on your engine.  A car’s engine gets very hot and clean oil helps pull that heat away.

If you are unsure of the number of miles that you have driven since your last oil change then it is probably time to get one.  When you trust your vehicle to Able Auto Service at 837 Osage Ave. in Kansas City KS we will select the right viscosity and grade of oil for your vehicle and cheerfully offer a FREE tire rotation.  Give us a call for an appointment at (913) 321-1030.
