Oil Change Service near Dekalb, IL

A simple and quick oil change can make all the difference in your vehicle’s performance and your engine’s longevity. Our Service Department is filled with top-notch technicians who are well-trained in all aspects of vehicle maintenance, so you can rest assured that your car is in good hands here at Rock River Block. Come visit us as soon as today at 224 North Alpine Road in Rockford, IL!

All drivers alike understand that an oil change is an essential service for your vehicle, but many aren’t sure why. To make things simple, oil is a lubricant. Because your engine contains several parts that are constantly in motion while your vehicle is running, oil provides a smooth consistency for the parts to work together cohesively. A lack of fresh oil gives the engine’s pieces a chance to work against one another, instead of together. The more the engine’s parts work against each other, the more chances there are for overheating and possible engine failure.

Another function that oil performs is its ability to keep the engine spic and span. Naturally, oil has the ability to absorb water, dust, and combustion byproducts by holding them in suspension. The oil in your engine can only absorb so much, so the older your oil gets, the less effective it becomes. When you bring your vehicle in for an oil change service, our technicians will drain your old oil and replace it with a fresh batch. All you have to do is schedule an appointment right here on our website! Just fill out the form with a few basic requirements and you will be well on your way to driving again with confidence!

The average timeframe between oil changes varies on your vehicle, but the general timeframe to get one ranges every 3,000 to 7,000 miles. You can also take a peek at your Owner’s Manual for a more accurate interval. Keep in mind there are many factors that can shorten the amount of time between services, such as an older engine, heavy hauling, or if you have a need for speed. Of course, if you have any questions for us, you can always contact one of our knowledgeable representatives at our service center by calling 866-324-7990!

If you are ready to make sure your vehicle is running at its optimal efficiency, stop and pay us a visit at Rock River Block for our oil change service near Dekalb, IL! All you have to do is make an appointment with our Service Department and you will be that much closer to traversing a well-oiled machine!

"Really Great Salesman"

October 13, 2017

I came in knowing the car I wanted to test drive, Mike met my mother and I at the door with a smile and a handshake. He was very personable and made us comfortable immediately. We went on a test drive and he was very informative without being pushy; we felt like he went above and beyond to make sure we knew how everything worked. I would highly recommend him to others in the future.

When I made the appointment to have mfg recall taken care of I was assured that the car would be done in time for my next commitment. Although I had my doubts it was done as promised. :)

"Very positive"

September 27, 2017

Mitch was very knowledgeable and patient in explaining all the features of the Kia Sorento we selected to us senior citizens. His time spent with us exceptional! I would definitely recommend him to others and would request his services again for future purchases. Great job!!

"Was looking for a good lease deal"

September 26, 2017

Started shopping around for a lease deal for my daughter who needed a vehicle for student teaching for her senior yr of college. Talked with a few dealerships and Mitch was fair and quick to get me a great deal. Mitch was fantastic to deal with, and my father-in-law ended up leasing a vehicle from Rock River KIA that same day. Mitch spent a significant amount of time showing us the features and functionality of the Sportages we ended up leasing. Highly recommend dealing with Mitch for your next vehicle purchase from Rock River KIA.

"Great Salesman"

September 26, 2017

Mitch answered all our questions about the vehicle. We felt like he went above and beyond to make sure we knew how everything worked. I would highly recommend him to others in the future.

Mitch did a great job. 3 car from him and he always treats me right! He is always willing to work with me and his management always seems to keep the best price and customer service in mind.

"No Pressure, Just Facts"

September 25, 2017

We were asked, in general, what we were interested in and shown different vehicles. After seeing different all the options that are now available...WOW, I then had to make even more decisions that I didn't expect. I don't buy cars often but I don't like sales 'pressure'. I didn't feel any pressure at all. All the facts and options were told and I felt comfortable to leave and go check out a couple other dealerships. It came down to the sales person that I felt the most at ease with. The other dealers had sales guys that I could 'feel' the 'push'. That really was a turnoff. They seemed too desperate and 'fake' in whatever they were telling me...Sooo back to KIA I came and made my purchase. I loved the 'one on one' help to show me how the features worked. I actually could use the car BEFORE reading the manual.

"Great Experience"

September 25, 2017

I went into Rock River Kia, not knowing I was going to leave with a brand new car. It is most definitely an upgrade from my old car and I couldn't be more thankful. Paul Lepien helped me look around with cars the first day I went and he was very helpful and makes you feel comfortable. Mitch Edler was also a great sales consultant and helped my family and I tremendously the day I got my car. I got exactly what I wanted and they worked with us. We even ended up getting a car for my mom a few weeks after as well since we liked their customer service so much. I highly recommend Rock River Kia.

"Great salesman, do not like having to agree to arbitration"

September 25, 2017

Mitch was very thourough and took an extra 45 minutes synching our phones and setting up the screen aps on the infotainment screen. The finance office was efficient but claimed state law requires us to submit to arbitration in Illinois. I am pretty sure this is THEIR policy.

This place has some amazing people and amazing deals!! Walked in without knowing what I was doing and not exactly car literate, and they were more than helpful with making things clearer for me! They were great in their finance department, show rooms, and their personalities, they actually care about their clients, they treated me more like a guest than client anyway... I can't express my gratitude for what they have done for me and my family, again just amazing people and amazing deals! Ps Carlos is beyond great!!!:,) forever grateful for my new car!! Thanks!!:)
