How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Mechanic Pouring Motor Oil into Funnel

 

Your vehicle’s health depends on routine oil changes according to GM-recommended oil change intervals. How often should you change your oil? Typically your oil change frequency should be between every 7,500 to 10,000 miles for most vehicles. Check your owner’s manual for manufacturing recommendations for your specific make and model; contact us at Ray Laethem Buick GMC, Inc. if you have questions.

Recommended Oil Change Frequency 

Some cars have a more rapid oil change frequency, but the general rule is to change your oil every 7,500-10,000 miles. But, If your regular drives around Detroit or target_city_2%% often include the types of driving below, you probably need to adjust your oil change frequencies:

  • Off-roading
  • Racing
  • Commercial use
  • Towing

Oil Change Frequency Information

If you could use some oil change tips, keep reading, and if you have questions on car care, you can trust the Certified GM Technicians in the Ray Laethem Buick GMC, Inc. service center.

  • Your owner’s manual should specify whether you must use synthetic or conventional oil on your vehicle. Synthetic oil costs more than conventional but lasts longer.
  • Oil always breaks down, even when your car isn’t driven consistently. If you don’t drive very often, we still recommend changing your oil at least every six months.
  • Make sure to change your oil filter when you change your motor oil. Our parts center will be happy to help you select the right oil filter for your GM.

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

Inspect your oil level at least once a month to avoid experiencing car problems when you’re out on Farmington Hills streets. Watch for things like changes in your motor oil color and texture. These can be signs of serious problems. If you’re low on oil or need auto service, you can schedule service online.
