How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

In order for your new vehicle to run like new on Marrero roads in the years to come, it’s important to maintain regular oil changes, among other routine services. Professionals had recommended that drivers change their oil every 3,000 miles in the past, but these days, you can go quite a bit longer, saving time and money! Today, many vehicles are able to go around 7,500 – 10,000 miles between oil changes. Still, it’s a good idea to check your owner’s manual to find out the exact numbers for your vehicle.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

You can consider 7,000 – 10,000 miles as a good general guideline, but certain vehicles will require an oil change sooner. Check out the circumstances below – if you regularly partake in any of these activities, contact Ray Brandt Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram to see when you should bring your vehicle in next:

  • Commercial use
  • Off-roading
  • Heavy towing
  • Racing

More Oil Change Tips

You can always count on the experienced technicians at our service department near Gretna! But before you make your way out, take a look at these helpful tips we’ve compiled:

  • Many folks work from home these days, but even if you don’t drive your car on a daily basis, you should still have the oil changed at least twice a year. Oil can break down over time, even when the vehicle isn’t in use.
  • Ensure your filter is being replaced each time your oil is replaced. If you’re a DIYer, you can purchase quality oil filters from the Ray Brandt Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram parts department. You should also get a tire rotation with every oil change.
  • If you’re unsure whether your vehicle takes synthetic oil, consult your owner’s manual. Synthetic oil usually costs more, but your vehicle might require it.
Checking Oil Level

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

By checking your oil once a month, you can catch any leaks in the system before they become a bigger, costlier issue. During the monthly check, you should take note of any discoloration or the appearance of metal particles. These are often signs of a more serious issue. If you find that you’re low on oil or notice a separate issue, it’s time to schedule service with Ray Brandt Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram near New Orleans. Also be sure you know how long your tires should last as well!
