Oil Change: Standard, Synthetic, and Diesel
Expert technicians agree that the oil change is the single most important maintenance service your vehicle can receive.
How often should I change my vehicle’s oil?
Oil change recommendations vary based on driving conditions, year, make and model of vehicle and in some instances type of oil used. Motor oil is your vehicle’s life blood and changing it according to the manufacturer’s schedule and your type of driving conditions is critical for long engine component life. In addition, oil changes are necessary to maintain your vehicle’s new or extended warranty. The most common recommendations are:
- 3,000 miles/3 months
- 5,000 miles/5 months
