How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Regular oil changes are essential in keeping your car, truck, or SUV running properly. While experts once recommend oil changes every 3,000 miles, advances in oil and engine technology will help you go more than twice as long. Today, most new vehicles can last between 7,500 and 10,000 miles before an oil change is required. However, you should always check your owner’s manual to see how often you should change your oil.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

While sticking to 7,000-10,000 miles is a good guideline, certain vehicles will need their oil changed more frequently. If your vehicle is subjected to any of the following uses, be sure to check with the experts at Classic Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM FIAT near Fort Worth to see how soon you should bring your vehicle in:

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

  • Whenever you get your oil changed, you should have your oil filter replaced as well. You can always stop by the parts department at Classic Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM FIAT for an oil filter if you plan on changing your oil yourself.
  • Are you wondering whether to use synthetic vs. conventional oil? As always, you can check your owner’s manual if you’re unsure. Synthetic oil often costs more, but some vehicles may require it.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

Checking your oil level once a month will help you help catch any potential leaks under your hood. Also, be sure to check the color of your oil. If you notice your oil is a darker color than usual, or notice any metal pieces, then contact Classic Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM FIAT to schedule a service appointment immediately.
