When Should I Get an Oil Change?

If you own an older car, you need an oil change every 3,000 miles. For more recent cars, you should instead use synthetic-blend or full-synthetic multi-grade motor oils. They are low viscosity and help boost fuel economy. If you drive a late-model car, change your oil every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. However, if you exclusively use full-synthetic motor oil and don’t subject your car to heavy-duty driving, you might go up to 15,000 miles between changes. It’s necessary to check your oil level monthly and top it off if needed. If your vehicle features oil-life monitoring, change out your oil when the warning light comes on.

Benefits of Oil Change Service

High quality motor oil helps your engine run smoothly. Fresh oil reduces temperatures and friction by lubricating moving parts. If your motor oil suddenly disappeared, your engine would shut down within seconds due to overwhelming friction — parts would seize up, bend, melt and break. To stretch your vehicle’s useful life, follow the manufacturer’s recommended oil change interval. Driving causes a buildup of dirt deposits that contribute to engine sluggishness, another important reason you should periodically change your oil.
