The general estimate for changing your motor oil is every 5,000 miles. Of course, because there are so many unique models on the road as well as unique drivers, the 5,000-mile threshold doesn’t always apply for everyone. Specifically, you’ll want to change your motor oil more often if you ask your engine to work hard on a daily basis. What does working hard mean?
For starters, larger vehicles such as trucks and three-row SUVs that regularly tow trailers need to have their motor oil swapped out more often, maybe every 3,000 miles. All that rigorous towing is going to work the engine and wear down the motor oil.
The 3,000-mile interval is also smart for anyone who has a high-performance car. Quickly accelerating from a standstill, sharply braking to come to a stop, and especially racing your car around rural roads or on any tracks is going to wear down the motor oil.
Not sure when you last had an oil change? To be safe, you may want to swap in some fresh motor oil anyway, but there are also key symptoms you can look for that suggest a change is needed.
First, you can check the oil yourself. Merely pull out the dipstick under the hood of your car and see what the oil looks like. If it’s black, sludgy, and thick, it should be swapped out.
If your motor oil is wearing down, the performance of your car is going to waver, too. So if you’ve noticed any downtick in your vehicle’s acceleration or fuel economy, it’s likely time to come by the shop.
Oil changes are easy, quick, and also vitally important to the short-term and long-term well-being of your car. So come by Harr CDJR and we’ll be happy to swap in fresh motor oil. If you have any other questions about the procedure, give us a call!
