One thing that we specialize in here at K&M Auto is performing oil changes. There are a lot of places out there that offer oil changes, but none of them can match our speed or effectiveness. A lot of people don’t even know why their vehicles require oil to run properly, and they will often neglect having it changed until it is too late. Oil is the lifeblood of any car engine. It acts as a lubricant for all of the moving metal parts that are constantly coming into contact with each other. Without a healthy supply of lubricant, these metal parts will rub together, creating tons of friction. All of that friction makes for a lot more heat. Eventually, the heat will become so great that the metal parts actually fuse together, rendering your engine useless. Unfortunately, oil does not last forever and must be replaced every few thousand miles. Oil is circulated through a filter and into all of the different parts of your engine. It then exits the engine and enters the oil reservoir, or sump pan.  The oil in the reservoir is then sucked up through the oil filter, and the cycle repeats itself. As the oil moves through the engine, it picks up tiny particles and debris. The filter will screen out the larger particles, but over time your oil will continue to get dirtier, which will make it a much less effective lubricant. Changing your oil on your own can be a frustrating and extremely messy task. We can change your oil for you quickly and professionally, and you won’t have to deal with cleaning up any oil spills.
