How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

“How often should you change your oil?” Our team of service specialists near Del Rio hear this question nearly every day! It’s no wonder, considering proper oil change frequency is critical for maintaining your vehicle. You may have heard that you should change your oil every 3,000 miles, but that’s simply not the case! Most vehicles can last between 7,500 and 10,000 miles before getting an oil change.

  • Off-roading
  • Commercial use
  • High-performance driving
  • Heavy towing

More Oil Change Tips

Oil changes are absolutely crucial, so it’s important to keep these following tips and facts in mind when thinking about oil change frequency.

  • Because oil degrades over time, it’s important to change your oil at least twice a year–even if you don’t drive it every day.
  • Your oil filter must be replaced every time you get an oil change. Our car parts department near Crystal City can help you secure an OEM replacement if you want to do the job yourself.
  • Again, the answer to “how often should you change your oil?” depends on a number of factors, including whether or not you need synthetic oil. Check your owner’s manual to see if you need it. And keep in mind that while synthetic oil may cost more, it tends to last longer.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

Without the proper oil level, your vehicle will be seriously damaged! You should check your oil once a month, making sure to check for any change to your oil’s color, as well as the appearance of any metal particles in the oil. Both of which are signs of serious engine issues in need of immediate attention. Schedule a service appointment at our Camp Wood-area auto repair center today if you notice any of those issues.
