How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Mechanic Pouring Motor Oil into Funnel


Regular oil changes are essential to your vehicle’s health and your own personal safety while on Devine roads. How often should you change your oil? Experts recommend an oil change frequency between 7,000 and 10,000 miles. That being said, it’s always a good idea to check your owner’s manual for your vehicle’s specific information. If your new or pre-owned vehicle is in need of an oil change, reach out to us at Brown Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram today!

Oil Change Frequency Tips

As mentioned above, the ideal oil change frequency is every 7,000 to 10,000 miles. However, there are other factors to keep in mind when getting your oil changed in the Castroville area. Explore some of the most essential details that our service experts have compiled below:

  • Make sure you change your oil filter whenever you change your oil. Our parts department can assist you in getting the right oil filter for your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram.
  • 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.
  • Check your owner’s manual to see if you should use synthetic or conventional oil on your car. Synthetic oil costs more but some vehicles require it.

Oil Change Inspection Frequency

Knowing how often you should change your oil is only half the battle. It’s equally important to know when you should check your oil for any irregularities. Questionable oil color and textures can indicate poor quality and potential harm to your car, truck, or SUV. That’s why we recommend checking your oil levels on a monthly basis. If you notice that your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram model’s performance is being directly affected by your synthetic or conventional oil, we suggest you bring your vehicle into Brown Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram for maintenance immediately.
