Below is a brief guide to this important aspect of automotive maintenance. We’ll cover why it’s so important, how often it should be performed, signs that it needs to be done, and more. Read on.


Why Motor Oil Should be Changed

Oil’s job is to flow through the insides of your car’s engine to lubricate, clean, and cool the various components as they do their part to get you from Point A to Point B. As oil ages, it starts to separate and collect debris from throughout the engine. Not only does this prevent it from performing effectively, but it also will eventually develop into a sludge that can cause a lot of damage. Making sure your vehicle gets an oil change on a regular basis prevents this from occurring.

Recommended Oil Change Intervals

How long your vehicle should go between oil changes depends on the type of oil used to run your vehicle’s engine. Older cars generally use conventional oil that needs to be switched out about every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or so. Synthetic oil is what you’ll find inside the engines of newer vehicles. It should be changed every 6,000 to 7,500 miles.


Indications That It’s Time for an Oil Change

While it’s important to remember these ranges, it’s just as important to keep in mind that they’re not set in stone. Such factors as road conditions, your driving behavior, and the climate can significantly impact oil change intervals. We’ve compiled some of the signs your car may exhibit on the road that will let you know it’s time to give your oil some attention. These are listed below:

  • The check engine light is on
  • The engine runs louder than usual or makes strange banging or clicking noises
  • There’s a burning smell coming from the engine

If you happen to notice any of these warning signs, be sure to take your car to a service center to have them addressed right away.
