How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

pouring oil

Changing your oil on a regular basis is important for maintaining your vehicle’s health. In the past, it was recommended that your oil gets changed every 3,000 miles, but with advances in oil and engine technology, that oil change interval has extended. Now, most vehicles can go 7,500 to 10,000 miles between oil changes. It’s best to refer to your owner’s manual more additional instructions about how often you should change your oil.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

7,000 to 10,000 miles is a broad guide because there are vehicles that will need oil changes sooner. If these circumstances apply to you, visit INFINITI of Clarendon Hills near Elmhurst to see when you should bring your vehicle in:

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