Oil changes are vital for maximum vehicle performance and longevity. For years, oil changes were recommended at every 3,000 miles, but today’s vehicles can typically go anywhere from 5,000 – 10,000 miles between service. Every car is different, so check your owner’s manual for specific instructions on when you change your oil.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

There are several factors that can affect how often you need you get your oil changed. Your driving habits and weather conditions in Mehlville can play a part, as well as regular:

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

More Oil Change Tips

Oil changes are necessary even if you don’t drive often. A car left sitting will still see oil break down over time, and because oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle, it’s important to have it changed at a minimum of twice a year. During the oil change, your certified technician will also replace the oil filter for better performance. Be sure to check your owner’s manual regarding whether you should use synthetic or conventional oil.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

Experts recommend checking your oil level once a month to ensure nothing is leaking and that the oil is free of metal particles. Because oil is so important to your engine’s performance, being aware of any issues before the grow into bigger, more expensive problems will save you headaches down the road.
