How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Generally, most vehicles can go between 7,000 and 10,000 miles between oil changes. This extension of the old 3,000-mile interval is because of the advances in oil and engine technology. To be sure of the exact mileage, though, it’s best to check your vehicle’s owner’s manual. This way, your maintenance schedule will be more exact and you’ll know when to come in for service.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

While 7,000-10,000 miles is a broad guideline, certain vehicles will need their oil changed sooner. This is typically for Wilsonville or Eugene drivers who do the following. This may also mean you need to bring your model in sooner for recommended maintenance.

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

More Oil Change Tips

Before you visit our service center near Wilsonville, check out these facts about oil changes. If you have any questions, call our service center at (503) 581-3000.

  • Even if you don’t drive your car much, you’ll still want to get an oil change at least twice a year. Oil breaks down over time even if your car isn’t being used.
  • Whenever you get your oil changed, they should replace the oil filter as well. You can always stop by the parts department at Power Mazda for an oil filter if you’re doing a DIY oil change.
  • Wondering whether to use synthetic vs. conventional oil? Check your owner’s manual. Synthetic oil can cost more, but some vehicles require it.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

If you check your vehicle’s oil levels at least once a month, you should be able to keep an eye on any possible leaks in the system. Also, be sure to check for any change in the oil’s color as well as if there are any metal particles in the oil. These can be signs of more serious problems that you’ll want to have checked out sooner than your next oil change appointment. Either way, be sure to schedule a service appointment with Power Mazda today!
