How Often Do You Get An Oil Change?

oil change

While you already know that regular oil changes are essential, but how often do you get an oil change? There’s so much info out there that it can be hard to gauge what proper oil change frequency is. It used to be a general rule of thumb to change oil every 3,000 miles, but modern oil and engine tech has made that obsolete. Nowadays, it’s generally accepted that you can go up to 7,500 miles to 10,000 miles between oil changes. Learn more with the team at SJ Denham Chrysler Jeep FIAT

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

While 7,500-10,000 miles is a good standard to follow, certain vehicles will need their oil changed sooner. So how often should you change your oil if that’s not a hard and fast rule? If any of these circumstances apply to you, our Anderson service center will help you determine your oil change frequency.:

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

Still not sure of how often to change your oil? It’s also very important to check your owner’s manual for more information on oil change frequency!

  • Your oil filter should be replaced every oil change. If you want to take care of the job yourself, our parts department will help you get an OEM part replacement.
  • Curious about the difference between synthetic vs. conventional oil? While synthetic costs more, it lasts longer. Check your owner’s manual to see what oil your vehicle requires.
