How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Oil change frequency is an important consideration if you want to make sure your vehicle continues to run smoothly, especially in new vehicles. Historically, oil changes were performed usually every 3,000 miles, but advances in technology have extended that to between 7,000 and 10,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual for more specific instructions or call our Service Department for more details on how often you should change your oil.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

Changing oil every 7,000-10,000 miles is just an estimate as some vehicles require their oil to be changed more frequently. If your vehicle falls into this category, check with our Service Department near Fort Pierce to see when you should schedule your vehicle in for an appointment.Certain special uses that force the engine to work harder or faster will also shorten oil change intervals.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

Checking your oil level regularly will prevent major oil-related problems occurring down the road and should be carried out every few weeks. Even if you only drive your vehicle sparingly in the Sebastian area, you should still change oil at least twice a year as engine oil loses its lubrication properties over time. Take note of any change to the oil’s color or smell, or even the presence of metal particles. These can be indicators of a larger problem at work and you should bring your vehicle in immediately for a service check.
