How Frequently Should Engine Oil Be Changed?

Ideally, you will have a vehicle's engine oil changed every 5,000 miles or so. This will largely depend on how much you drive your car and the type of oil that is used. In some cases, it may be possible to go up to 10,000 miles between oil changes, but it is always important to keep an eye on the oil light and suggested oil changes from the manufacturer.

After your oil is changed, a technician will put a sticker on your vehicle's windshield. It will tell you the approximate date that you should come back for your next oil change so that you don't forget to do so.

What Happens If I Don't Schedule Regular Oil Changes?

Over time, the oil in your vehicle's engine will slowly evolve from a liquid into a gooey substance that could clog engine components. Furthermore, the car may not run as well when it is full of oil that is contaminated with dirt and other debris.

What Type of Oil Should I Use?

Generally speaking, you can use either conventional or synthetic motor oil in your car. It is also possible to switch between the two types of oil without damaging your engine or other vehicle components. The key difference between synthetic and conventional motor oil is that synthetic products will last longer.
