How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Oil Change


You know that oil changes are important to your vehicle’s health, but how often should you change your oil? Over the last decade, innovations in oil and engine technologies have helped Crestview drivers lessen their oil change frequency. So, how often should you change your oil if you drive a newer vehicle? Many new vehicles can now go up to 7,000-10,000 miles before needing to be refilled, but it’s best to check your recommended service schedule for an exact figure. Learn more about oil change frequency in the guide below, and contact the Allen Turner Chevrolet service center if you have any further questions.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

How often should you change your oil? Certain vehicles will have a higher oil change frequency than others, but it is recommended that commuters change their oil about every 7,000-10,000 miles. If your drives around Pace regularly include any of the following activities, your oil change frequency should be increased:

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

More Facts About Oil Change Frequency

There are some other factors that drivers should take into consideration before adjusting their oil change frequency. Here are some hacks that will ease the oil change process:

  • Check your owner’s manual to see if synthetic or traditional oil is recommended.
  • Oil breaks down and loses efficacy over time, even when the car isn’t driven on a consistent basis. If you don’t drive often, you should still change your oil at least twice per year.
  • Change your oil filter simultaneously whenever you change your oil. The Allen Turner Chevrolet parts center  will assist you in getting the right oil filter.

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

Here are some steps to follow when checking your oil level:

  • Check your oil level at least once a month to avoid any problems during your Fort Walton Beach commute. 
  • A change in your oil’s color and texture can be a sign of serious underlying issues, so be sure to schedule service if this occurs.
