Kia High Mileage Oil Change Service 

Can I Go Longer Between Oil Changes? Find Out at Roper Kia in Joplin, MO

We all know that oil changes are necessary, but do they have to happen so often? What's the harm in putting off an oil change for just a little longer? The truth is that having your oil changed at the recommended intervals is very important, and following a higher mileage interval for oil changes can put your vehicle's engine at great risk. Learn more about why you should have your oil changed regularly here, and then find out how we make it easier and less expensive to have your oil changed at Roper Kia, serving Webb City and Carl Junction.

Why Does My Kia Need an Oil Change?

The engine in your Kia is a finely-tuned machine that's composed of many metal components. Some of these move incredibly quickly, and they need lubrication in order to avoid damage. Engine oil is what provides this vital lubrication. But the engine's high heat begins to degrade oil over time, making it less effective as a lubricant. Eventually, you will need to drain the old oil and replace it with new oil to keep the engine lubricated.


Why Can't I Stretch Out the Time Between Oil Changes?

If you go for too long without an oil change, your engine will break down altogether, and you'll have to get a new engine -- or a new vehicle. But going just a couple thousand extra miles between oil changes may not have that same effect, at least not immediately. Many people think that doing this is fine since there's no immediately noticeable damage. But if you drive your Kia longer than the recommended interval without getting an oil change, the engine will develop premature wear. This may end up shortening the engine's lifespan, so you might not get as much time out of your Kia.


How To Safely Go Longer Between Oil Changes

If you're using conventional oil, there is one way to increase the time between oil changes: switch to synthetic oil! We recommend having conventional oil changed every 3,750 miles, but you can go up to 7,500 miles with synthetic oil!
