How Often Do You Need to Get an Oil Change?

You may be wondering how often it’s recommended to get an oil change. The short answer is about every 7,500 or 10,000 miles or every six months. The longer answer is that depending on a variety of factors, the mileage or time interval may be different. The best way to be sure is to consult your owner’s manual and/or bring your car in for service.

Signs You Need an Oil Change

In addition to paying attention to your dashboard lights, here are some other signs to watch out for that may indicate it’s time for an oil change:

  • Check Engine light appears & persists
  • Gas smell inside your car
  • Unusual engine noises
  • Dark or dirty oil
  • High mileage

If you notice any of these warning signs, do yourself and your car a favor and bring it on in for oil change service. Another thing to keep in mind is that if you plan on taking a long trip or are just returning home from one, it helps to check your oil along the way and to get an extra oil change before you embark on your journey.
