How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Adding oil to engine
It should go without saying that regular oil changes are necessary for preserving the health of your vehicle. However, it’s one of those smaller services that often gets put on the backburner. Over the last ten years or so, there have been a lot of improvements to engine technologies, and newer vehicles are able to travel further distances without oil changes. Most new CDJR vehicles can travel between 7,500 miles and 15,000 miles before an oil change is required. Below, you can learn more about oil change frequency and what it means for your daily travels around Sioux City.

 

 

More About Recommended Oil Change Frequency

How often should you change your oil? It varies from vehicle to vehicle, but again, the rule of thumb is 7,500 – 10,000 miles. If your drives around Brookings regularly feature any of the following tasks, you’ll want to adjust your oil change frequency accordingly:

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

Oil Change Tips You Should Know

There are a lot of good tips to keep in mind when you’re scheduling an oil change — some of which include:

  • Review your owner’s manual to confirm if you should use synthetic or conventional oil for your vehicle. Synthetic oil is more expensive than conventional but lasts longer.
  • Eventually, oil breaks down, even when the car isn’t being driven on a routine basis. If you don’t drive frequently, you should still have your car’s oil changed at least twice per year.
  • Have your oil filter changed whenever you have the oil changed. Our parts center will make sure a genuine OEM filter is used for your car.

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

To avoid issues later down the road, check your oil at least once a month. Evaluate things like oil color and texture. If the oil is dark or sludgey, you’ll want to schedule service right away. And, of course, you’re welcome to schedule service even if everything looks fine, and you just want an oil replacement!
