A general rule of thumb when it comes to oil changes is that it should be done every three months or 3,000 miles. Recommendations specific to your vehicle can be found in your owner’s manual. Today, with the availability of high-performance motor oils, many vehicles can make it to the 5,000-mile mark before needing an oil change. However, going beyond that is not typically recommended. Another bonus to a professional oil change is that afterwards, the technician will be able to offer you a more precise estimate of when your next oil change should be. They base this information on things like the condition of your engine and the kind of motor oil applied. Of course, if your oil light is illuminated, you will need to service your vehicle sooner.
