How Often Should I Change My Oil?

Although every vehicle type & model perform differently, in general it's recommended to change your oil every few thousand miles or six months, whichever comes first. If you have a newer model, you can longer in between oil changes than older vehicles. Consult your vehicle's owner's manual to find out specific recommended oil change intervals.

What Happens When I Don't Change My Oil Regularly?

Not changing your oil to the recommended day or the mile won't cause immediate harm, but the longer you wait after the recommended period to change your oil, the higher the risk of possible engine damage. How can damage happen? The oil in your vehicle's engine collects dirt and dust, which can lead to heat and friction build up in your engine. If not diagnosed & treated early, you could end up shelling out money for costly repairs. To ensure optimal engine performance & lubrication, maintain clean oil in your engine.
