When Should I Change My Oil?

The golden rule has been to change your oil every 3,000 miles or six months. However, you may find that you can travel closer to 5,000 or 7,000 miles with engine technology improving and synthetic oil lasting longer. You will find the most accurate interval by consulting your owner's manual and working with our service team to discover the best interval for you.

If you haven’t been driving much, you may need to change your oil by time intervals rather than distance. Even if you haven't used your car at all recently, you should still change your oil every six months.

How Do I Know if I Need an Oil Change?

Some of the red flags that indicate you may need an oil change include:

  • Oil stains beneath your vehicle
  • Uneven idle, clattering noises, or rough performance
  • Oil indicator light in your instrument cluster
  • Gritty, dark brown, milky, or globby oil color or consistency when you check the dipstick

Why Are Oil Changes Important?

Oil changes are needed to lubricate engine components and reduce heat. Oil breaks down and collects debris over time, making it less effective. Heat can build up and damage engine components without regular oil changes.
