Oil change service in Olathe at L&D Auto Specialists

An oil change is essential for keeping the engine healthy, resulting in better overall performance. Oil changes provide the following benefits:

  • Maintain engine lubrication.

  • Promote vehicle longevity.

  • Cool engine components.

  • Improve gas mileage.

  • Remove engine wear particles and sludge.

How often should you change your oil at L&D Auto Specialists in Olathe?

An oil change is generally recommended between 3,000 and 5,000 miles for regular oil change services and 5,000-6,000 miles for synthetic oil services. You'll probably need to get an oil change exactly every 3,000 miles if you usually drive in severe conditions. There are several scenarios that can constitute a severe driving condition, including:

  • Driving on dusty, muddy, sandy or gravel roads.

  • Traveling in stop-and-go traffic.

  • Making frequent short trips (10 miles in cold climates and five miles in hot environments).

  • Using your vehicle for towing heavy loads.

Oil change intervals vary based on the specific manufacturer’s requirements of oil weight and quantity used. At L&D Auto Specialists, we follow all manufacturer’s suggested intervals.

Warning signs you need an oil change

Nowadays most cars come equipped with an oil change reminder that will alert the driver when it's time to change the oil. This algorithm relies on mileage mostly and lacks sensors to detect the quality of the oil. There is no system in place on most cars to tell you when you need to get an oil change.

How often should I check the oil level?

Make it a habit to check your oil every month to make sure you're not burning or leaking oil. You should get repairs done as soon as possible if you notice a leak. Add oil if the level is low. It is important that your oil color is a clear brown black, even though color is not necessarily an indication of oil life. You may need a change of oil if the oil is murky or opaque. In the event that it is milky, your engine could be leaking coolant. The use of dipsticks is less necessary if your car has one of the oil monitoring systems mentioned earlier.
