oil being poured into an  engine

At Dale and Ron's Auto Service Inc in Lawrence, KS, we know that over the past decade, depending on what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive, it may seem like oil changes have gotten more expensive, and there are more options from synthetic to standard 10w/30 oil.  What kind is best for your vehicle and is the higher price worth the cost? 

There may come a day when you go to shift your vehicle out of “Park”, and the shifter refuses to move. Perhaps you are already experiencing this issue intermittently, or currently have a vehicle stuck in park. While this is a serious inconvenience, it doesn’t necessarily indicate a serious problem; let Dale and Ron's Auto Service Inc in Lawrence, KS put your mind at ease.

At Dale and Ron's Auto Service Inc in Lawrence, KS, we know how annoying a faulty fuel gauge can be. Never knowing how much gas you have in your car, truck, or SUV, and constantly running the risk of stranding yourself on the road somewhere, takes its toll after a while. Luckily, we can fix that.

air filter being added the engine

Air filters are an important part of vehicle maintenance. What many people don’t realize is you actually have two filters; one for your engine and a cabin filter to filter the air coming into your car. Both of them function the same way but have entirely different purposes. They are often neglected, particularly the cabin filter, and yours may need to be changed right now. This guide, provided by Dale and Ron's Auto Service Inc in Lawrence, highlights the importance of filters, symptoms of an overused one, and how to maintain them.

However, you've probably noticed that the price of oil changes can vary pretty dramatically depending on what you get, and the oil all looks the same. Here's a breakdown of the difference between synthetic and conventional oil, from Dale and Ron's Auto Service Inc in Lawrence, KS.
