How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Adding oil to engine

Regularly changing your oil is integral to the health of your vehicle. Over the past ten years oil and engine technologies have vastly improved, allowing Peachtree City drivers to go much longer between oil changes. Now, most new Lexus models have an oil change frequency between 7,500 miles and 10,000 miles. Your owner’s manual will have specifics for your make and model, but how you use your vehicle can also affect your recommended oil change frequency. Keep reading to learn all you need to know about oil changes from the experts at the Butler Lexus of South Atlanta service center.

Differences in Oil Change Frequency

So, how often should you change your oil? Your recommended oil change frequency will change from one model to another, but the rule of thumb is that you should schedule an oil change every 7,000-10,000 miles. There are also some activities that can cause your oil change frequency to increase. If you regularly do any of the following around Fayetteville or elsewhere, you will likely need your oil changed more frequently:

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

Oil Change Frequency Information

Do you want some tips on changing your oil? Here are some facts about oil from the experts at Butler Lexus of South Atlanta, and always feel free to check out our other service tips and tricks:

  • Check your owner’s manual to see if you should use synthetic or conventional oil on your car. Synthetic oil costs more but lasts longer.
  • Oil eventually breaks down, even when the car isn’t driven on a consistent basis. If you don’t drive often, you should still change your oil at least twice per year.
  • Make sure you change your oil filter whenever you change your oil. Our parts center can assist you in getting the right oil filter for your Chevy.

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

It’s best to check your oil level at least once a month. That will protect you from any problems on Newnan streets. If your oil’s color or texture changes, it could be a sign of a serious problem. If you’re low on oil or think you might need auto service, schedule service with us here at Butler Lexus of South Atlanta.
