How Often Should I Change My Oil?

Oil Change

How often should you change your oil? In spite of what the managers at most quick lube places will tell you, experts generally agree that changing your oil once every 5,000 miles is more than adequate for most cars. But that can differ by make and model. Our service department wants to help you keep your car running reliably on our Kenosha roads, so we’ve put together the guide below on figuring out the right oil change frequency for your car.



How Often Should You Change Your Oil According to the Manufacturer?

Quick lube technicians are motivated to keep you coming back as frequently as possible, which is why the “3 months or 3,000 miles” recommendation keeps being repeated. But the best, most reliable source when determining how often to get the oil changed in your car is your owner’s manual. This comes straight from the manufacturer, who knows exactly how your engine was designed and what it needs. You may find that the manufacturer recommends changing the oil in your car only once every 7,500 miles or more. We strongly suggest that all Racine drivers follow the schedule in their owners manuals for all maintenance tasks, not just oil changes. That’s why our service center goes by recommendations that come directly from Toyota regarding oil change frequency for Toyota models.

How Often Should You Change Your Oil? Check Your Warranty

Is your car still under warranty? In that case, your warranty will likely require a specific oil change frequency for your vehicle. Strictly following this schedule will not only help keep your car running in top shape on our Waukegan, IL roads, but failing to follow that schedule may void your warranty. So, be sure to check your warranty for the required maintenance schedule.
