How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Adding oil to engine
 

Most of our Middletown customers know they should get their oil changed regularly, but don’t know the recommended oil change frequency for their vehicle. How often should you change your oil, exactly? Generally speaking, most vehicle recommendations put oil change intervals between 7,500 to 10,000 miles. If you’re unsure of the recommendations for your vehicle, the service center can let you know how often you should change your oil.

Oil Change Frequency – What the Experts Say

When it comes to how often you should change your oil, the last word on the matter is your vehicle’s owner’s manual, because it was written by the people who built and designed your automobile. The manuals for some cars prescribe changing the oil every 7,500 miles to 10,000 miles, but there are some factors that can increase the recommended oil change frequency, these include:

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

Speak with a mechanic at the Middletown Honda service center about the need to adjust your oil change frequency if any of the above applies to your vehicle. 

How Often Should You Change Your Synthetic Oil?

Vehicles using synthetic oil can sometimes go longer between oil changes than those with regular oil, though it depends on your make and model. Oil change frequencies for vehicles running on synthetic oil typically range between 6,000 and 16,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual for more specific information.

Check Your Warranty

How often should you change your oil if your car is still under warranty? If your automobile is still under warranty, check the warranty for details on how often your car should be serviced, including the specific oil change frequency. This is more than a recommendation. Not following the service schedule outlined in your warranty could void the warranty altogether, in some cases.
