Lubbock Kia Maintenance

Perchance your new or new-to-you Kia vehicle may come complete with top-of-the-line amenities, all vehicles continue to need regular upkeep to maintain them in their ideal condition. It hardly needs be said that the best kind of maintenance is the regularly scheduled kind. Conversely when small issues go uninspected, they can progress to more significant issues later on. Knowing what to do for your car requires an expert. Here are the most frequently asked questions our dealership gets about Lubbock Kia maintenance.

Kia Maintenance

 

 

  • Kia Engine & Ignition System

  • Why won’t my Kia start?

    Although there are various reasons why your Kia won’t start, one likely possibility is your car’s battery. For example, if your lights were left on, then its likely that the charge is drained. One sign of a low charge is if it takes a moment to start your Kia when you turn the key. There may be other reasons why your vehicle won’t start, so it’s best to consult a certified Kia mechanic.

  • Kia Fuel Filter

  • When should I replace my fuel filter?

    A clean fuel filter ensures optimal and trouble-free engine performance. Always consult your Kia mechanic or automakers’ manual, but fuel filters usually last between 20,000-40,000 miles.

  • Kia Brake Pad Replacement

  • How long will my brake pads last?

    The lifespan of a brake pad depends on your typical driving routine and especially, the operating environment. Based upon moderate to heavy usage, brake pads are typically designed to last through twenty to twenty-five thousand miles. Factors that will significantly reduce its life are braking frequently, braking at high-speed, temperature elevation and driving on rocky terrain and uneven areas. On average, brake pads are designed to give from forty to sixty thousand miles of pad life in normal driving conditions.

  • The Check Engine Light

  • What does it mean to ‘service engine soon’?

    Computerized dashboards are standard featuresin most modern cars and trucks. These include indicators and sensors to assist drivers in managing vehicle safety. Common reasons that your check engine light has come on include missing gas cap, or even low tire pressure. This light also produces a computerized error code which is easy to read by a diagnostic machine.

  • Kia Tire Rotation

  • When should I get my tires rotated?

    A car’s primary point of contact with the pavement is the wheels. This causes excessive wear and tear that must be distributed evenly among all the tires. After 6,000 to 8,000 miles, a tire rotation is advised. Rotation ensures that the tires will wear evenly. Also note that off-roading and 4WD, as well as personal driving habits may dramatically influence your tire rotation interval and frequency, outside of a regular Kia tire rotation schedule.

  • Kia Oil Change – Lubbock

  • How long between oil changes?

    While many auto specialists swear by the 3 month or 3,000-7,000 mile oil-change rule, this may or may not be true of your make and model. The first suggestion is to check your car’s user manual. This will give you the most accurate info available, especially for new models. Unfortunately, however, the manual provides little guidance when it comes to vehicle age, history, and wear. This more complete recommendation requires an expert’s know-how. If your personal mechanic seems unsure, then phone your Kia dealer right away for the best advice.

  • Kia Battery Replacement

  • How do I know when to change my battery?

    The average car battery lasts from 3 to 5 years, depending on use and care. The best way to avoid a battery problem is monitor your vehicle’s battery health. This typically takes place during a routine service check. Most car batteries, like other perishable items, have an expiration date clearly marked.

  • Kia Certified Maintenance

  • Why choose a Kia service provider for my car maintenance?

  • Kia Brake Change

  • When should I get my brakes replaced?

    Each scheduled auto care appointment should include a standard inspection. A licensed Kia mechanic will inspect your vehicle for any other required services. This is the best way to have your brakes checked, as brake quality is measured by size, look, and feel. Always have squeaky brakes looked at by a professional, as it may be a symptom of a bigger problem.
