How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Regular oil change frequency is an important factor when you’re trying to maintain your vehicle’s health. Experts recommended oil changes every 3,000 miles in the past, but oil and engine technology improvements have made that interval longer. Most cars, trucks, vans and SUVs can last 7,500 or 10,000-mile intervals between oil changes these days. Check your owner’s manual for specific instructions, but here’s our quick guide on how often you should change your oil.



Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

7,500-10,000 miles is a good broad guideline concerning how long to drive between oil changes, but certain vehicles will need more frequent oil changes. Cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs engaged any of the following activities might apply:

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

Check with Dan Cummins Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram near Lexington to see how soon you should bring your vehicle in if you take part in any of these.

More Oil Change Tips

Check these facts about oil changes before visiting our service center near Georgetown:

  • Even if you don’t drive your car much, you’ll still want to get an oil change at least twice a year. Oil breaks down over time even if your car isn’t being used.
  • Have your oil filter replaced whenever you get your oil changed, and stop by the parts department at Dan Cummins Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for one if you’re doing a DIY oil change.
  • Wondering whether to use synthetic vs. conventional oil? Check your owner’s manual. Synthetic oil can cost more, but some vehicles require it.

Questions? Call our service department at ​859-379-4013.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

Catch any leaks in the oil system by checking your oil level once a month. Without oil, of course, your vehicle can become seriously damaged. But less obviously, be sure to check for any change to your oil’s color, as well as the appearance of any metal particles in the oil. Those can be signs of serious problems. If you’re low on oil or notice another issue, schedule a service appointment with Dan Cummins Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram today.
