When do I get my Oil Changed? That is a common question asked especially with newer models.
- For most newer makes and models, oil changes are recommended approximately every 6,000-7,500 miles
- However, if you drive in a dusty area, be sure to change your oil and filter every 3,000-5,000 miles
- Many vehicles are equipped with computers that alert drivers when it’s time to change their oil
- Listen to the warnings.
For most of us, all we need to do is follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule for oil change intervals. Their guidelines are designed to keep your car in good running condition for a long time.
