How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Pouring Oil into Funnel into Engine


One important service to have done on your vehicle to ensure you and your passengers’ safety is an oil change. So how often should you change your oil? Typically, newer models have an oil change frequency between 7,500 and 10,000 miles. However, this is a general rule of thumb. Learn more about the oil change frequency for your vehicle and more with our service team at Tempe Honda in Tempe before you schedule your next service appointment.

Recommended Oil Change Frequency

How often should you change your oil? Different models have different oil change frequencies. Generally, newer models can last between 7,000-10,000 miles between oil changes. However, if you go off-roading, use your vehicle for commercial use, race, or use your vehicle for heavy towing in Mesa, you’ll want to have your vehicle’s oil changed more frequently (you’ll also want other services performed more often, like tire rotations).

Oil Change Frequency Information

In need of a few oil change tips? Our service experts have a few to offer:

  • Check your owner’s manual to see if you should use synthetic or conventional oil on your car. Synthetic oil costs more but lasts longer.
  • Oil eventually breaks down, even when the car isn’t driven on a consistent basis. If you don’t drive often, you should still change your oil at least twice per year.
  • Make sure you change your oil filter whenever you change your oil. Our parts center can assist you in getting the right oil filter for your Chevy.

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

Our service experts recommend that you check your oil at least once a month. This can help you catch changes in your oil’s color or texture, thereby avoiding more serious problems and expensive repairs in the future. When the time comes to have your oil checked or changed, schedule a service appointment with our team near Chandler.
