To ensure a long service life, today’s vehicles require motor oil that meets specific automaker specifications. Failure to use the right type of oil and follow the interval for oil changes, the warranty on a new car can be voided. Ask your mechanic for professional advice on the right motor oil for your make and model of vehicle. It must have the correct SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) viscosity grade, meet performance standards set by the API (American Petroleum Institute), and comply with any unique specifications established by the vehicle manufacturer.

There are 3 Things that affect How Often You Should Get an Oil Change:

  • Age of vehicle 
  • Type of oil used 
  • Driving conditions

How Many Miles Should You Get an Oil Change For Newer Cars?

Most of the newer model vehicles are equipped with oil-life monitoring systems that automatically determine when an oil change is needed and notify you with an alert on the instrument panel. Earlier systems were based on time and mileage, but with today’s advanced technology, it can analyze the actual operating conditions and identify when the oil starts to degrade. With less frequent oil changes, it is vital that you check the oil level and top it off as needed on a monthly basis.

A standard oil change used to be every 3,000 miles, but with modern lubricants, many engines have recommended oil change intervals of 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Most newer vehicles require synthetic-blend or full-synthetic, low-viscosity, multi-grade, resource-conserving oils that minimize friction and maximize fuel economy. If your vehicle uses full-synthetic motor oil, it might go as far as 15,000 miles between services!

How Often Should You Get an Oil Change for Older Cars?

In days past, the oil change interval was based on mileage, with two maintenance schedules; "normal" and "severe.” Severe driving conditions would be defined as frequent short trips (5 miles or less), extremely hot, cold, or dusty climates, sustained stop-and-go driving, and/or carrying heavy loads or towing a trailer. If your driving falls under the definition of severe, use the more assertive schedule. However, if you drive under normal conditions, be wary of spending hard-earned money on services your car may not need.
