Oil Change

Changing your engine oil is one of the most essential ways to ensure your vehicle’s continuing top health. Clean oil prevents wear on vital engine components, and keeps these most important parts lubricated so that they can efficiently do their jobs at their top potential. At 401 Dixie Kia, you’ll get the option of conventional or synthetic oil. Regular oil may be more popular and less expensive, whereas synthetic oil is chemically optimized for a better flow and longer lifespan, albeit at a more expensive price.

How Often Should You Get Your Oil Changed?

We recommend that you get your oil changed approximately every 6,000 km, but please refer to your owner’s manual for specific guidance with your particular model.

Coolant System

People often neglect the coolant system, and thus it serves as one of the leading causes of vehicle breakdown. This overheating and failure of engine components can be prevented with consistent fresh coolant that will ward off damaging heat transfer and prevent your engine from freezing in the cold or boiling over in the heat.

How Often Should You Get Your Coolant System Flushed?

There’s no hard and fast rule as to how often to get your coolant system flushed, although it should be done at least every 5 years. Please refer to your owner’s manual for specific guidance with your particular model, and be sure to get the system regularly inspected.

Air Conditioning

There’s no better feeling than staying cool on a hot summer day, but consequently few worse feelings than overheating when your air conditioning doesn’t work. Your air conditioning system keeps you comfy in your vehicle on muggy days, and makes sure your windows don’t fog up thanks to the humidity.

How Often Should You Get Your Air Conditioning System Flushed?

If you notice that your air conditioning system isn’t blowing cool air as cold or as powerful as it once did, there could be something wrong with it. If you come across one of these problems, it’s time to come see us, as there could be dirt, corrosion, low refrigerant or a faulty thermostat that’s causing this.
