How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Man Changing Oil

Improvements in automotive technology and engine oil have upped the recommended intervals for oil changes. While the old advice was to change your oil every 3,000 miles, today’s vehicles can last anywhere from 5,000-10,000 miles between oil changes. Every model is different so it’s important to check your owner’s manual, as well as being aware of other possible maintenance needs.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

While you can expect to change your oil every 5,000-10,000 miles, additional factors could affect your frequency for maintenance. For example, if you regularly engage in off-roading, heavy towing, or racing, you could be putting extra strain on your vehicle, causing your oil to break down faster. Similarly, commercial use vehicles have different service schedules as well.

More Oil Change Tips

If you’re unsure whether it’s time to get an oil change near Cherry Hill, the service experts at Acura Turnersville have you covered. For questions, call our service center at (856) 317-6580, and consider the following oil change facts:

  • Infrequent drivers will still want to get an oil change at least twice a year. Oil breaks down over time regardless of use, so it’s important to get it refreshed.
  • Change your oil filter every time you change your oil. If you are into automotive DIY, get the parts you need at our cost-effective parts department.
  • Wondering whether to use synthetic vs. conventional oil? Check your owner’s manual. Synthetic oil can cost more, but some vehicles require it.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

Maple Shade drivers should check their oil once a month to ensure the appearance hasn’t changed and that there aren’t any leaks. Oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle, and staying up on its quality will save you from preventable, costly repairs in the future. Make sure your levels don’t get too low, and that your oil is free of any metal particles.
