Oil Change

How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Regular maintenance will keep your car running for years to come, a fact that’s doubly true when it comes to oil changes. But how often should you change your oil? Experts used to recommend that drivers change their car’s engine oil every 3,000 miles, but advancements in technology have changed things up. Many newer vehicles, including the latest 2019 Honda cars and SUVs, can go between 7,500 miles and 10,000 miles between oil changes. Ultimately, your owner’s manual will detail a more accurate oil change frequency, but Partyka Mazda is happy to answer any questions New Haven-area drivers have on the subject below.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

While 7,000-10,000 miles is a broad guideline for a recommended oil change interval, some vehicles will definitely need their oil changed sooner. If any of these circumstances apply to you, check with Partyka Mazda near Shelton to see how soon you should bring your vehicle in:

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

  • Even if you don’t drive your car much, you’ll still want to get an oil change at least twice a year. Oil breaks down over time even if your car isn’t being used.
  • Whenever you get your oil changed, they should replace the oil filter as well. You can always stop by the parts department at Partyka Mazda for an oil filter if you’re doing a DIY oil change.
  • Wondering whether to use full synthetic vs. conventional car oil? Check your owner’s manual. Synthetic oil can cost more, but some vehicles require it.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

If you’re wondering, “How often should I check my oil level?” then fear not. We have a definitive answer. You should do a proper oil level check at least once a month to ensure there are no leaks. If oil is leaking, and your oil levels do go low, your engine could become seriously damaged. Also, don’t forget to check the appearance of your oil. Even if it’s full, metal particles in your oil can visually be apparent. If you beliebe your oil looks off, this could be a sign of a serious issue, and you should schedule a service appointment as soon as possible.
