When Should I Get an Oil Change?

If you drive an older car, you should get an oil change every 3,000 miles. For recently-built cars, you should use synthetic-blend or full-synthetic multi-grade motor oils with low viscosity that help boost fuel economy. If you drive a late-model vehicle, you should change your oil every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. If you use only full-synthetic motor oil and don’t do heavy-duty driving, you can go up to 15,000 miles between changes. It’s a good idea to check your oil level monthly and top it off if necessary. If your vehicle has oil-life monitoring, replace your oil when the warning light comes on.

Benefits of Oil Change Service

Fresh, quality motor oil helps your engine run efficiently. It reduces temperatures and friction by lubricating moving parts that rub each other. Without motor oil, your engine would implode within seconds due to constant friction — parts would seize up, melt, bend and break. To prolong your vehicle’s useful life, be sure to heed the manufacturer’s recommended oil change interval. Driving causes dirt deposits that cause engine sluggishness, which is why you should periodically change your oil.
