How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Adding oil to engine
 

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 Blairsville drivers to go much longer in oil change frequency. Most new Chevy models today should have 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 Tri-Star Chevrolet Buick of Blairsville.

Recommended Oil Change Frequency 

How often should you change your oil? Some cars have a higher oil change frequency than others and vise versa, but the general rule of thumb is to change your oil every 7,000-10,000 miles. If your drives around Indiana or New Aleandria regularly include any of the things listed below, you may need to change your oil more frequently.

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

Oil Change Frequency Information

Would you like some oil change tips? If so, read on, and if you have questions about auto care, call the experts in the service center at Tri-Star Chevrolet Buick of Blairsville.

  • Check your owner’s manual to see if you should use synthetic or conventional oil on your car. Synthetic oil costs more but lasts longer.
  • Oil eventually breaks down, even when the car isn’t driven on a consistent basis. If you don’t drive often, you should still change your oil at least twice per year.
  • Make sure you change your oil filter whenever you change your oil. Our parts center can assist you in getting the right oil filter for your Chevy.

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

Check your oil level at least once a month to avoid any problems when you’re out and about on Latrobe streets. Things like changes in your oil’s color and texture can be a sign of serious problems. If you see that you’re low on oil or need auto service, schedule service with Tri-Star Chevrolet Buick of Blairsville.
