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.
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:
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.
An oil change generally takes between 15 minutes and 45 minutes, although it may take longer under some circumstances. Our certified technicians have years of experience working on MINI cars.
