How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

oil change on a car

Your vehicle’s health is nearly as crucial as your own well-being as your safety and your passengers’ safety on Harlingen and McAllen roads depend on your car’s safety. Regular oil changes are vital to maintaining your vehicle’s overall health and safety, too. Over the past few years, engine and oil technologies have helped Brownsville-area drivers enjoy longer oil change frequency intervals. 

So how often should you change your oil? Most new Chevy vehicles today carry a recommended oil change frequency between 7,500 and 10,000 miles. Nevertheless, you should always consult your vehicle owner’s manual for specific information about your vehicle make and model. Have additional questions? Contact usat Boggus Tipton Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram today! 

Suggested Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

Some vehicles carry shorter oil change frequency than other vehicles and vice versa. Generally, you should change your oil every 7,000-10,000 miles, however. If you regularly do the following activities around South Padre Island and Weslaco, you’ll want to change your oil more often: 

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

How Often Should You Check Your Oil?

You should check your oil levels at least monthly to avoid issues while you’re out and about on Edinburg streets. Things like changes in your oil’s texture and color can be indicative of more serious issues. If you notice that your oil level is low or that you need auto service, schedule service with us at Boggus Tipton Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram as soon as possible!

  • Consult your vehicle owner’s manual to find out whether conventional or synthetic oil is recommended for your vehicle.
  • While synthetic oil is more costly, it lasts longer than conventional oil.
  • Even when your car isn’t driven regularly, the oil will eventually break down. If you don’t drive regularly, you’ll still want to change your oil at least twice yearly.
  • Whenever you change your oil, make sure that you change your oil filter. Our parts departmentwill ensure that you get the correct oil filter for your Chevy!
