Oil Change Timeline
Although several factors can impact this timeline, it’s generally recommended to change your oil about every 5,000 miles or six months, whichever comes first. This tends to meet the needs of most vehicles, as it covers a wide range of possibilities, so you can be sure that your model is getting the care it needs, when it needs it. However, you should be aware that older cars, vehicles that tow a lot, or rides that use conventional oil will likely require more frequent changes, whereas newer and light-duty options can probably go a bit longer without this service. If you're ever unsure, feel free to check the dipstick yourself. Look for the marking to be between the two measurement levels!
