How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Adding oil to engine

 

Keeping on top of routine maintenance is key to keeping your vehicle on the road as long as possible. When you get routine oil changes, your Nisswa car will have an engine that’s lubricated and ready to get you to where you need to be. Over the last 10 years or so, improvements in oil and engine technologies mean that the answer to “how often should you change your oil?” is now 7,500 to 10,000 miles. Still, you’ll want to check your owner’s manual for specifics for your particular vehicle. If you’ve got questions, we suggest you contact our team.

Recommended Oil Change Frequency 

How often should you change your oil? Certain cars have a higher oil change frequency than others, but the general rule is that you’ll want to change your oil every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. If your drives around Aitkin include any of the following activities or driving types, you’ll probably want to get your oil changed a little more often.

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

Oil Change Frequency Information

Want some oil change tips? If so, we suggest you read on and become a more informed Bemidji driver with these tips from Tanner Nissan.

  • Check your owner’s manual to see if you should use synthetic or conventional oil on your car. Synthetic oil costs more, but you’ll get more life out of your vehicle.
  • Oil will break down even if you don’t do that much driving. You’ll want to change your oil twice a year no matter how many miles you drive.
  • Be sure to change your oil filter every time you change your oil. We use genuine OEM parts, meaning you’re getting the right oil filter for the job.
