How Often Should You Change Your Oil?


Oil change frequency varies from vehicle to vehicle, but our service centers can take care of plenty of your oil change needs in and around Wayne. Most newer vehicles out on the road need an oil change every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. We also recommend checking your owner’s manual for more specific information about your make and model so that you’re aware of what your vehicle needs most.

Recommended Oil Change Frequency 

How often should you change your oil in Wayne? Some cars will have a higher oil change frequency than others, but there are plenty of factors that can go into when you’ll need your next oil change. Here are some common factors that can necessitate more frequent oil changes for your vehicle:

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

Oil Change Frequency Tips & Information

  • Always stick to your owner’s manual for proper vehicle maintenance– including whether or not your vehicle needs conventional or synthetic oil. Synthetic oil lasts longer, but your vehicle may not require it, and it may not be recommended for your specific make and model. Using the wrong kind of oil can have a major impact on your system.
  • Oil breaks down over time, becoming sludgy. You should change your oil at least twice a year, even if you don’t drive that often. Your oil will still slowly degrade over time.
  • Always replace the oil filter as well if you’re replacing your own oil at home. Our parts centers can help you order parts online for your vehicle!

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

We recommend checking your oil level at least once a month. If your oil looks different in color and its texture looks off, it’s about time for an oil change for your vehicle. Our service centers can easily take care of your next oil change at a competitive price while offering expert and friendly service.
