How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Oil Change


Your oil change frequency is important to how well your car performs on Cadillac streets. So how often should you change your oil? Well, depending on the make and model of your vehicle, that number will vary. Oil and engine technology has improved significantly over the last ten years, so Bellaire drivers won’t have to change their car’s oil as frequently. Learn more about how often you should change your oil with Serra Nissan of Traverse City so you can take care of your vehicle properly. If you run into any questions, contact us through a call or a text!

Suggested Oil Change Frequency

The experts at Serra Nissan of Traverse City suggest changing your oil once every 7,000-10,000 miles as that is the general rule of thumb. However, you should still look up your owner’s manual for an accurate oil change frequency for your specific vehicle. Also keep in mind that depending on your driving style your oil change schedule will be different. For example, the frequency should be adjusted if you do any off-roading, racing, heavy towing, or commercial use driving in the Manistee area.

Tips on Oil Change Frequency

Our award-winning service team at Serra Nissan of Traverse City is ready to spill some golden secrets that will help you figure out when you should change your car’s oil. Let’s take a look at these tips:

  • Does your car recommend using synthetic or conventional oil? Consult with your owner’s manual because synthetic oil lasts longer than conventional oil despite its higher cost.
  • You should change your oil at least twice a year regardless of how often you drive your car on a daily basis since oil eventually breaks down.
  • Whenever you change your oil, remember to change your oil filter as well.
