How Often Should I Schedule an Oil Change?

The make and model you drive, as well as the type of oil your vehicle requires and the driving conditions in which you operate will each impact how often you need to get an oil change. To begin, refer to your owner's manual. In there, it will outline what type of oil you should use and how often to bring your vehicle in for service.

In general, many vehicles on the road today will need an oil change between about every 5,000 to 7,000 miles with conventional oil. However, if your vehicle calls for full synthetic oil, you may be able to go upwards of 15,000 miles before needing an oil change.


How Does Engine Oil Protect Your Car?

The oil in your car protects all the components of the engine by reducing friction and heat. It also helps keep debris and other matter from getting into the engine. Over time as it accumulates particles and sits in the engine, though, it will need to be replaced. By putting fresh oil in your car, you ensure your engine remains lubricated, cool, and protected.

Signs You Need an Oil Change

Even with proper care and diligence, at times, your car may need some more TLC, such as an extra oil change or other type of maintenance. You should schedule a service appointment if you notice any of the following:

  • Unusual noises
  • Burning smell inside the cabin
  • Dark, dirty, or sludgy oil color and consistency

Along with these symptoms, if you notice the check engine light appear and remain on your dashboard, schedule an appointment to take proactive action. By caring for your car, you can quickly address anything that arises and enjoy driving safely for many miles to come.
