When Should I Change My Oil and Filter?

We recommend that you change your oil every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Typically, oil filters are changed at the same time as the oil. If you haven't driven much recently, you can go by increments of time, which would be every six months. Some synthetic oils make it possible to travel even further before needing an oil change.

Be sure to consult your owner's manual and our certified service team to discover the best interval for your vehicle and driving habits.

How to Tell You Need an Oil Change

The most common and easiest way to tell if you need an oil change is with a warning light. You can also check your oil yourself by using the dipstick. If the oil is dark, globby, or milky, it's time to schedule an oil change. If your car is overdue for an oil change, you may notice a rough idle or unusual odor. If you notice any of these red flags, contact our service team.

The Importance of Oil Changes

Motor oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle. Clean oil reduces heat and friction produced by the engine. However, particles will eventually enter the oil and cause it to become less effective. Old oil can cause excessive heat and damage your engine. Keeping on top of your oil changes helps ensure you get the most out of your engine.
