How often is oil change frequency?

A general rule of thumb used to be that you had to change your oil every 3,000-5,000 miles, but as vehicle technology has advanced, that rule has changed. Now, some cars can go up to 15,000 miles between oil changes. The design of your engine, how you drive, the age of your car, and the kind of oil your vehicle requires determine how frequently you need oil changes. Cars that use fully synthetic oil typically can go the longest between changes, while cars with high mileage need to get oil changes more often. Check your owner’s manual to see the recommended oil change schedule for your vehicle or ask the technicians at Speedi Automotive for advice.

Oil Changes 101

If you think an oil change is just about topping up your existing oil, think again. There are actually multiple steps to the process:

  • Remove the old engine oil
  • Remove and replace the oil filter
  • Fill the oil compartment with the appropriate oil for your car
  • Dispose of the old oil and filter according to city guidelines
  • Perform inspection of other fluid levels and top up as needed

As oil is used by your engine, sludge and dirt build up, which can put stress on your engine and diminish your fuel efficiency. Adding new oil without removing the old oil only mixes up the sludge with the fresh oil, so it continues to take a toll on your engine.

Prevent Costly Engine Failures

Prevent Costly Engine Failures

The last thing any vehicle owner wants to hear is that they have engine problems. Engine failures are notoriously expensive to repair. In many cases, if your engine fails, you may need to consider getting a new car instead of fixing it.

Getting regular oil changes drastically reduces the risk of something going wrong with your engine. Sticking to a regular schedule of oil changes protects all of the components of your engine and ensures it operates at its peak level of performance.

  • Ensure proper lubrication of pistons, valves, and other engine components to reduce wear and tear and prevent overheating
  • Prevent sludge and debris from building up inside your engine
  • Improve fuel efficiency by boosting engine efficiency
  • Increase the longevity of your vehicle

Oil changes are fast and affordable, but the benefits are tremendous for your vehicle.
