When Should You Get an Oil Change?

Oil Changes are an important part of keeping your car in great shape. Regular oil changes will keep your engine protected and running smoothly, so you can enjoy excellent performance. But when exactly does your car need an oil change?

Many technicians recommend changing your oil every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. But that recommendation might vary depending on your vehicle, your driving habits and your driving conditions.

The first thing you should do when determining your oil change schedule is to check your owner's manual. This will tell you what the manufacturer recommends for your particular make and model. Then think about your driving conditions and habits. If you frequently drive in stop-and-go traffic, very hot or very cold weather, or you regularly tow heavy loads, then you may need more frequent oil changes. You can talk to a trusted technician to come up with a schedule that's right for you.
