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.

Chevrolet Recommended Oil Change Intervals

The broad guideline for Chevrolet vehicle oil changes is between 7,000-10,000 miles. That said, certain vehicles will need their oil changed sooner, and this is doubly true for vehicles being driven hard. In some cases how your vehicle is driven can impact the rate your oil wears to a greater degree than the type of vehicle said oil is in. If your vehicle is involved in any of these situations, contact us at Volume Chevrolet near Griffin to see how often should you get an oil change:

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

How Often Should You Get an Oil Change? 

See your owner’s manual to find out exactly what the Chevrolet recommended oil change interval is for your vehicle. We would be happy if you allowed us to take care of your oil changes for you. We offer quick and precise service near Forsyth, complete with online scheduling. Before your visit, check out these facts about oil changes:

  • Even if you don’t drive your car often, make sure 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, the technicians should replace the oil filter as well. You can always stop by the parts department here 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 it lasts longer and is generally of higher quality.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

If you check your oil level once a month, you will be able to catch any leaks in the oil system. Additionally, check for any change to your oil’s color, as well as the appearance of any metal particles in the oil. Darker oil tends to be more worn, and metal particles indicate serious engine damage. If you’re low on oil or notice another issue, schedule a service appointment with Volume Chevrolet near McDonough today.
