How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Oil Cap

Regular oil changes are critical to maintaining vehicle health. Traditionally, 3,000-mile intervals have been recommended between oil changes, but oil and engine technology advancements have extended that number to 7,500 or even 10,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual for specific recommendations, or consult our guide below for additional information on oil change frequency and more.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

7,500 to 10,000 miles is a broad guideline, so certain vehicles will need their oil changed sooner. If you’re planning to use your vehicle for any of these activities, check with Sam Leman Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram FIAT Morton near Pekin to see how often your oil needs to be changed:

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

More Oil Change Tips

Check out these oil change facts before you visit our service department near Washington. If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call during service hours at 844-517-2557.

  • Even if you don’t drive the recommended interval, you should still get an oil change at least twice a year. Oil breaks down over time even if your car isn’t being used.
  • You should always replace your oil filter whenever you get your oil changed. If you’re performing the oil change yourself, contact our parts department at Sam Leman Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram FIAT Morton for the right variety.
  • Wondering whether to use synthetic vs. conventional oil? Check your owner’s manual, as some vehicles will require it.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

Check your oil level regularly to catch any leaks or expenditure in the oil system. Be sure to check for any change to your oil’s color, as well as the appearance of any metal particles in the oil, both of which can be signs of serious problems. If you’re low on oil or notice another issue, schedule a service appointment with Sam Leman Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram FIAT Morton today.
