How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

mitsubishi oil change

Want your new or used vehicle to run at peak performance on Mount Vernon roads for years to come? Of course you do! Among other vital maintenance, regular oil changes will help you keep your vehicle running longer. While experts used to recommend an oil change every 3,000 miles, these days the recommended interval falls between 7,500 and 10,000 miles for most vehicles. For a better idea of what your specific model requires, consult your owner’s manual and check your car oil regularly to determine when it needs to be changed.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

7,500 – 10,000 miles is a good general guideline to follow, but certain vehicles may need their oil changed sooner than that. If you frequently use your vehicle for the following activities, you’ll want to get in touch with a New Rochelle area service center to find out how soon you should bring your vehicle in:

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

When Should I Check My Oil Level?

To err on the side of caution, you should check your oil level once a month. Doing so can alert you to issues before serious damage has a chance to occur. When you check the level, you should also note the color of your oil and whether it appears to have any metal particles floating in it. Both of these may be signs of a more serious issue, and if you do notice them, you should schedule an oil change at a local service center as soon as possible.
