How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Oil Cap

Many Lebanon drivers know that a routine oil change is essential to keeping your vehicle running at its best. But it can be easy to forget how often you should be getting your oil changes. A good rule of thumb it to get an oil change every 3,000 miles or so, yet some modern vehicles can run between 7,500 and 10,000 miles before needed an oil change. While this is surely less hassle for some Mascoutah drivers, every vehicle is different so it’s always important to check your owner’s manual on how long the manufacturer recommends before changing your oil.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

In general, many vehicles that can last 7,000-10,000 miles before getting an oil change are typically used for average commuting. Those East St. Louis drivers that rely on their vehicle for tougher tasks may need their oil changed much earlier. If any of these circumstances apply to you, check with Auffenberg Nissan near Lebanon to see how soon you should bring your vehicle in:

  • Off-roading
  • Commercial use
  • Racing
  • Heavy towing

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

You should not only pay attention to your mileage between oil changes, but also your oil levels. This can be checked once a month to help catch any leaks that can cause serious damage to your vehicle. A prime indicator that your oil levels may be changing is if you notice any changes in the oil’s color or if you can spot metal flakes within the oil itself. Those can be signs of serious problems. If you’re low on oil or notice another issue, schedule a service appointment with Auffenberg Nissan today.

More Oil Change Tips

When it comes to oil changes, there’s so much more than simply knowing when to schedule your next appointment, it’s important to understand why it’s so crucial to the overall function of your vehicle as well as the various options you’ll have when you bring your vehicle in for service.

  • Even if you don’t drive your car much, you’ll still want to get an oil change at least twice a year. Oil breaks down over time even if your car isn’t being used.
  • Whenever you get your oil changed, they should replace the oil filter as well. You can always stop by the parts department at Auffenberg Nissan for an oil filter if you’re doing a DIY oil change.
  • Wondering whether to use synthetic vs. conventional oil? Check your owner’s manual. Synthetic oil can cost more, but some vehicles require it.
