How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Pouring Oil Into Reservoir

Part of keeping your vehicle in the best shape possible is having regular oil changes. Experts used to recommend having an oil change every 3,000 miles. However, with innovative engine and oil technology, newer models can last somewhere between 7,500 to 10,000 miles until the next oil change. In the end, it’s a good idea to double-check with your owner’s manual for more specific guidelines. In the meantime, answer the question, “How often should you change your oil,” with our service guide at the North Penn Mazda service center.


Oil Change Frequency

Though most models range from a 7,500 to 10,000-mile interval for oil changes, some vehicles will require an oil change more often depending on your driving habits. Should any of the following circumstances apply to you and your driving habits, you should talk with our service technicians to see how often you should schedule an oil change for your vehicle:

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

Additional Tips for Oil Changes

Even a vehicle that isn’t driven regularly, it’s still essential to have an oil change as well as to follow the required maintenance schedule of the vehicle. Here are a few oil change facts you’ll want to know:

  • An oil change should be performed at least twice a year, even if the vehicle is not used often. Over time, the oil will still break down.
  • Each time you perform an oil change, you should also change the oil filter.
  • Confirm whether or your vehicle requires synthetic oil, or see if it is acceptable to use conventional oil.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

It’s recommended that you check your vehicle’s oil level at least once a month. This way, you can catch leaks. When checking the oil level at home, you’ll also want to check the appearance of the motor oil. If you notice the presence of debris or other contaminants, it’s time to change the oil. If you don’t want to do this on your own, you can schedule an appointment with the North Penn Mazda service team near North Wales. We’ll have your oil changed in no time at all.
