How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

replacing oil in car

If you want to keep your vehicle operating at peak performance for many years to come, it is important to keep up with regular maintenance like oil changes. In the past, experts recommended oil changes every 3,000 miles. However, advancement in vehicle technology and oil quality means you do not have to perform this task quite as often. Today, most vehicles can go between 7,500 and 10,000 miles between oil changes. Your owner’s manual should have more specific guidelines for your particular make and model regarding how often an oil change is recommended.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

While 7,000-10,000 miles is a broad guideline, there may be reasons why you would want to change your oil more often. If any of these circumstances apply to you, consult the team at Sterling Acura of Austin to see when you should set up an appointment.

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

We offer excellent auto service in Austin for all makes and models!

Additional Oil Change Tips

Before you stop by our service center for your next oil change, keep the following tips in mind.

  • Even if you do not drive very often, an oil change is still recommended at least twice per year. Oil breaks down as it ages even if your car isn’t being used.
  • When you get your oil changed, the oil filter should be replaced as well. If you plan to perform a DIY oil change, visit the parts department at Sterling Acura of Austin for a new oil filter.
  • Wondering whether to use synthetic vs. conventional oil? See what your owner’s manual has to say. Synthetic oil can be a bit more pricey, but it is necessary for some vehicles.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

Checking your oil level once a month will help catch any leaks in the oil system. If your vehicle is short on oil, it could cause costly damage. Be sure to check for any change to your oil’s color, as well as the appearance of any metal particles in the oil. If you notice either issue, it is a good idea to have your vehicle evaluated by a professional.
