How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Having your vehicle’s oil regularly changed is essential to maintaining your vehicle’s health. It used to be that you should change your oil every 3,000 miles, but since there have been many advances in oil and engine technology throughout the years, that interval has been extended. Most vehicles can go between 7,500 and 10,000 miles between oil changes. It’s a good idea to check your owner’s manual for more specific instructions about how often you should change your oil.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

While 7,000-10,000 miles is a broad guideline, certain vehicles will need their oil changed sooner. This is especially true for drivers that tend to have a lead foot as well as take the roads less traveled. If any of these circumstances apply to you, check with Volume Chevrolet near Griffin to see how soon you should bring your vehicle in:

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

More Oil Change Tips

If you’d rather have someone at our service center take a look for you, bring your model in and we’ll be more than happy to get your vehicle running like it should on Forsyth roads and beyond. Before your visit, check out these facts about oil changes:

  • 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 Volume Chevrolet 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?

Checking your oil level once a month will help catch any leaks in the oil system. Also, be sure to check for any change to your oil’s color, as well as the appearance of any metal particles in the oil. After all, without oil, your vehicle can become seriously damaged. If you’re low on oil or notice another issue, schedule a service appointment with Volume Chevrolet today.
