How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

oil change on a car

The health of your vehicle is almost as important as your own health because the safety of you and your passengers may depend on the health of your car. Routine oil changes are vital to your vehicle’s health. Over the last decade, improvements in oil and engine technologies help drivers to go much longer in oil change frequency. Most new models today have an oil change frequency between 7,500 and 10,000 miles. Still, always check your owner’s manual for specifics for your make and model, and if you have questions, contact Benoit Motors.



Recommended Oil Change Frequency 

How often should you change your oil? Some cars have a higher oil change frequency than others and vice versa, but the general rule of thumb is to change your oil every 7,500-10,000 miles. If your drives around Farmerville or target_city_2%% regularly include any of the types of driving listed below, you need to adjust your oil change frequencies accordingly:

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