How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Regular oil changes are essential to your car’s health. Over the past decade, improvements in oil and engine technologies allow Merriam drivers to go much longer in oil change frequency than in previous years. Most of today’s new Chevrolet models have an oil change frequency somewhere between 7,500 and 10,000 miles, however you should still check your owner’s manual for the specific oil change frequency for your model. Have questions? Contact Hendrick Chevrolet Shawnee Mission. We’re here for you!

Recommended Oil Change Frequency

How often should you change your oil? The answer varies depending on your personal circumstances. Some vehicles have a higher oil change frequency than others, but the standard guideline is to change your oil every 7,500-10,000 miles. However, if your drives around Kansas City or Shawnee Mission have you encountering any of the below conditions regularly, you may need to reduce your oil change frequency:

  • Racing
  • Heavy towing
  • Off-roading
  • Commercial use

Oil Change Frequency Tips

Would you like some helpful oil change tips for your Chevy? If so, read on, and if you still have questions about any auto service issues, from tire rotation to collision repair, call the Hendrick Chevrolet Shawnee Mission service center.

  • Check your owner’s manual to see if you should use synthetic or conventional oil on your specific vehicle. Synthetic oil costs more, but lasts longer.
  • All oil eventually breaks down, even if your car isn’t driven regularly. If you don’t use it very often, you still should change your oil at least twice a year.
  • Make sure you change your oil filter whenever you change your oil. The parts department at Hendrick Chevrolet Shawnee Mission will help you get the correct oil and oil filter for your Chevy.

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

To avoid potential problems when you’re driving around Overland Park, check your oil level at least once a month. Things like changes in the color and texture of your oil may be an indication of a severe problem. If you see that you are low on oil or need auto service, you can quickly schedule a service appointment at Hendrick Chevrolet Shawnee Mission online or by phone.
