When Should I Get an Oil Change?

It used to be a well-known fact that drivers should change their oil every 3,000 miles. However, with advancements in modern, longer-lasting motor oil, it is now widely recommended to change your vehicle’s oil every 5,000 miles to 7,500 miles or once every six months. Of course, this timeframe depends on a host of variables, including how often you drive, your usual driving conditions, the age of your vehicle, and so on.

For a more specified time range, you could always check your vehicle’s manual.

Signs You Need an Oil Change

In general, if you’re experiencing any of the following issues, it may be time for an oil change:

  • Excess vehicle exhaust: Dark smoke is trailing from your exhaust pipe.
  • Engine noise and knocking: Your engine is working extra hard, so it’s producing loud noises while in motion.
  • Excessive mileage: Your fuel economy is lower than usual and you’ve had to fill up your tank more often.
  • Shaking: When idle, your vehicle shakes or vibrates.
  • Your ‘check engine’ light is illuminated: The “check engine” light on your dashboard is lit up. Please note that this could be a general sign which detects if anything is wrong with your engine and not just your oil level.

Why Change Your Oil

Motor oil is the ingredient that lubricates your engine so interior parts can work smoothly. When your oil is thin or old, it prevents this lubrication process from taking place. Instead, the car produces a high amount of heat due to friction.

If this is ignored, it can lead to the engine overheating and smoke billowing from under your hood. Unchanged oil can bring further damage to crankshafts, bearings, and camshafts.

The good news is that these situations are preventable if you stay up to date on your regular oil changes.
