When Do I Get an Oil Change?

The owner's manual is a great place to start if you're looking for more information about when your vehicle's oil should be changed. While it can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, in general, the oil will be changed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. If you do a lot of driving in severe conditions, or take a lot of short trips, the oil may need to be changed sooner.

If a car is using synthetic oil, it can go about 10,000 miles between oil changes. Always check with the owner's manual or our dealership to find out when your oil should be changed.

Signs You Need an Oil Change

There are some signs you can look out for if you're wondering whether or not it's time to change the oil. If you happen to notice any of these, then you'll want to schedule that service appointment as soon as possible.

Loud engine noises. If there is a knocking or clanging noise coming from the engine, it could be because the oil hasn't been changed. Oil lubricates the engine parts, so you normally won't hear these noises. If you do, it could be caused by extra friction, which causes these noises.

Black oil. Oil should be a rich amber color. If you take the dipstick out while checking your oil and it has turned black and thick, it's time to change the oil.

Oil odor. If you're smelling a burnt oil odor while in the cabin, the engine could be overheating, or there might be a leak to attend to.

Warning light. The engine oil light will turn on if there isn't enough oil. Add oil, or visit our service center for help from our technicians.
