How Often Should I Have My Engine Oil Changed?
There's no one-size-fits-all interval for engine oil changes since your choice of oil, driving habits and driving environment all play key roles in how quickly your engine oil will break down. If you choose conventional oil each time you have your engine oil changed, you'll likely have to stick to the old 3-month or 3,000-mile standard. When you step up to a synthetic blend or full synthetic oil, you may be able to get up to 7,000 miles in before you require service. Your specific vehicle's owner's manual will contain recommendations for which type of engine oil you should choose and how long your interval should be. In addition, many modern vehicles feature an oil-life monitoring system that can alert you when your next oil change service is due.
