How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Oil Change

 

As you drive your vehicle, it will have to be maintained. Failure to maintain your ride could leave you stranded on the side of the road around Evergreen. An easy maintenance item to stay on top of is oil changes. Oil is responsible for lubricating and cooling important components in your vehicle. With that being said, how often should you change your oil?

The oil change frequency could vary depending on a variety of factors. Most new vehicles should have their oil changed every 7,000 to 10,000 miles. However, we suggest you reference your owner’s manual or visit our service center for specifics. Today, the team at Lee Motor Company will provide an in-depth answer to, “How often should you change your oil?” and touch on additional oil change tips!

Oil Change Frequency & Driving Types

While many vehicles have an oil change frequency of every 7,000 to 10,000 miles, these intervals can change depending on the circumstances. In addition to your specific vehicle and oil, the type of driving you do around Brewton could affect the oil change frequency as well. If you find yourself doing any of the following driving types, we suggest you get a certified oil change more frequently:

  • Off-roading
  • Hard driving
  • Towing
  • Commercial use
  • Stop & go traffic

More Oil Change Tips

On top of changing your oil according to its recommended interval, there are some additional oil change tips that you should be aware of. Following our oil change advice will ensure that your ride continues to run smoothly on Atmore roads. Without further ado, here’s some additional information on oil changes:

  • Double-check the oil type your vehicle takes. The two main engine oils are synthetic oils and conventional oils. Conventional oil is typically more inexpensive but doesn’t last as long as synthetic oil.
  • If it takes you a while to hit your mileage interval for oil changes, you still might need to change your oil. Oil breaks down over time and we suggest you change your oil at least once every six months.
  • Not sure what oil filter or tools you need to change your vehicle’s oil? Visit our parts center for assistance.
  • Checking your oil and oil level at least once a month can help you stay on top of any potential issues that might arise in the future.
