What's the Recommended Oil Change Frequency?

Oil Warning Light

We offer vehicles that are designed to offer a smooth and effortless driving experience in Kiowa. However, even the most well-engineered vehicles will need an oil change. Oil is responsible for many different aspects of your vehicle’s engine and regularly changing it will ensure you won’t be left stranded in Bennett.

So, how often should you change your oil? The typical oil change frequency is around every 7,500 miles to 10,000 miles. However, that number can change depending on your specific model. It’s best to reference your owner’s manual for specifics or you can schedule a service appointment with our team if you need assistance. Otherwise, continue learning about oil changes below with the service professionals at Transwest Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram!

How Often Should You Change Your Oil With Severe-Duty Driving?

While the typical oil change frequency is around 7,500 to 10,000 miles, that recommendation is only for vehicles that are used under normal circumstances in Burlington. With that being said, how often should you change your oil with “severe-duty” driving? If you’re driving under conditions recognized as “severe-duty” you may have to change your oil more often. That interval can often be found in your owner’s manual as it can change from vehicle to vehicle. But, what constitutes “severe duty?” Take a look below to find out:

  • Regular driving in stop & go traffic
  • Towing usage
  • Racing & track usage
  • Commercial usage
  • Off-roading
  • Frequent short-distance driving

What To Keep In Mind With Oil Changes

We want to provide you with some additional information regarding oil changes so that you can ensure your vehicle won’t let you down during your Limon drives. Here’s what to keep in mind with oil changes:

  • Check Your Oil: In between oil changes, we recommend you check your engine oil at least once a month to catch any issues before they become a bigger problem.
  • Filter Replacement: When you get an oil change, make sure you’re also replacing your oil filter as well.
  • Get the Correct Oil: From oil viscosity to oil types such as regular and synthetic oil, make sure you’re using the correct oil type for your vehicle.
  • Oil Age: Oil breaks down over time, even when you’re not driving so be sure to change your oil at least once every 6 months, even if you’re not doing a lot of driving.
