How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

oil change 6.20.19 PM

Changing your oil regularly is one of the most important tasks you can perform to keep your vehicle running smoothly for many years to come. In the past, experts recommended oil changes every 3,000 miles, but this is no longer the case thanks to advancements in engine technology and engine oil. Today, most vehicles can go between 7,500 and 10,000 miles between oil changes. Your owner’s manual will have more detailed information on how often you should change your oil.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

While 7,000-10,000 miles is an appropriate guideline for most newer vehicles, there are some cases where an oil change is needed more often. If any of these circumstances apply to you, consult with the experts at the Apple Tree Acura service center near Hendersonville.

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

Additional Oil Change Tips

Before setting up an appointment at our Johnson City-area service center, we have provided a few quick facts about oil changes. If you would like to know more about oil changes, be sure to contact us with any questions.

  • Even if you do not drive frequently, it is important to still change your oil twice a year. Oil breaks down over time regardless of whether you are driving the vehicle or not.
  • Each time you bring your vehicle in for an oil change, the oil filter should also be changed as well. Consult the parts department at Apple Tree Acura for an oil filter if you decide to perform your own oil change.
  • Wondering whether to use synthetic vs. conventional oil? It is important to take a look at your owner’s manual, because it’s mandatory to use synthetic oil in some cars.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

Checking your oil level once a month will help catch any leaks in the oil system. If your vehicle does not have the proper amount of oil, it can lead to significant damage. Be sure to check for any changes to your oil’s color, as well as the appearance of any metal particles in the oil. This can also signal an issue with your car. If you’re low on oil or notice another issue, schedule a service appointment with Apple Tree Acura today.
