How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Oil Stick With Cloth

Keeping up with oil changes is important to maintaining your vehicle. Experts use to recommend oil changes every 3,000 miles, but advances in engine technology, and in oil, have extended that interval. Nowadays, most vehicles can go up to 7,500 to 10,000 miles between oil changes. Check your owner’s manual for more specific recommendations for your make and model.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

While 7,000-10,000 miles is a broad guideline, there are some vehicles that will need to be brought in more frequently. If you meet any of the following criteria, contact Honda of Aventura near Hollywood to see how soon you should bring your vehicle in:

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

More Oil Change Tips

These oil change facts can help you make the best decisions when it comes to your vehicle maintenance. If you have any questions, call our service center at (855) 971-2975.

  • Even if you don’t drive your car much, you still need to have your oil changed twice a year. Oil breaks down over time even if your car isn’t being used.
  • When your oil needs changing, your oil filter needs to be replaced as well. You can always stop by the parts department at Honda of Aventura for an oil filter if you’re doing a DIY oil change.
  • Not sure 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?

To help detect any leaks and prevent serious damage, you should plan on checking your oil levels once a month. In addition to checking the level, be sure to check for any change to your oil’s color, as well as the appearance of any metal particles in the oil. Those can be signs of serious problems. If you’re low on oil or notice another issue, schedule a service appointment with Honda of Aventura today.
