Changing the Oil In Your Car

The owner's manual is something you should have by your side, because it will tell you when the oil should be changed in your car. Generally speaking, you'll be due for an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. Some conditions can alter that number. For example, if you find yourself in off-roading situations often, the dirt and dust from those trails can wear the oil down sooner.

Short-distance trips of five miles or less can also be considered severe condition driving. That may require a sooner oil change. Cars using synthetic oil may be able to last up to 10,000 miles between oil changes.

Signs It's Time to Change the Oil

There are some things you'll want to keep track of if you're not sure when your last oil change was. These are the tell-tale signs to look out for. If you happen to notice them, get in touch with our service experts as soon as possible, and schedule your next maintenance visit.

Thick oil. Oil should be amber in color, and relatively viscous. When it turns dark black or brown, and becomes thick, that sludge can end up decreasing fuel efficiency and perhaps even cause damage to the engine. Debris turns the engine oil black, so if you notice black oil, it's likely time for an oil change.

Loud noises. If you're driving along and hear loud noises coming from the engine, it could be related to oil. If the engine parts aren't being lubricated, it causes extra friction, which can cause some of those rumbling or knocking noises.

Smells. This is a sure-fire way to tell it's time for an oil change. A burnt oil odor inside the cabin is what to look out for. The engine may be overheating, or you may have a leak.
