When Should My Car Get an Oil Change?

When Should My Car Get an Oil Change?Depending on the car you drive, sooner or later you’ll need an oil change. It’s best to check your owner’s manual in advance and review the maintenance schedule. This can tell you around what time you should schedule the first one and every succeeding appointment.

When Cars Need Oil Changes

When Cars USED to Need Oil Changes

Every 5,000 miles

Every 3,000 miles

Every 7,500 miles

Every 10,000 miles

Every 15,000 miles

This chart calls attention to the fact that, in the past, many cars used the gold standard of every 3,000 miles as the best time to change oil.

Nowadays, manufacturers have become much more precise in identifying when your car’s oil should be changed. Some cars fall between every 5,000 and 7,500 miles, which could be six months or longer.

If your car’s maintenance schedule cites every 10,000 miles or more, there’s a strong chance it uses synthetic oil. Synthetic oil lasts longer, so it can endure more time on the road.

Why Does My Car Need an Oil Change?

Before we begin to cite the reasons for getting the oil changed, let’s talk about what oil does for your Toyota. When a service technician puts oil into your car, it lubricates all the parts associated with the engine. The engine can operate in a smooth fashion, so that you’re offered a better ride.

After you’ve been driving for a while, though, the oil starts collecting dust and debris. What does that lead to?

  • Dirty oil
  • Sluggish performance
  • Soiled filter

When it’s first added to your engine, oil first appears a gold, translucent color, and slides between the different engine parts seamlessly. But that oil absorbs every speck of dust it stirs up on the road. So, you need to change the oil and the filter, too.

Changing the oil in a carHow Long Will an Oil Change Take?

Keeping up with maintenance can seem like just another item crowding your to-do list, but oil changes take up little time. Since it’s such a common procedure for our Toyota-trained technicians, it should be under an hour.

Schedule an appointment online, day or night, and when it’s convenient for you. Remember that if you want a tech to perform several other maintenance tasks, it takes longer.

Should I Add Oil to My Car Myself?

While not necessarily a gamble, adding oil to your car yourself may not produce the results you want. If you notice from checking the dipstick that it looks low, it may be tempting to buy a bottle of motor oil from your local auto retailer or discount store.

Because the fresh oil mixes with the older oil, it gives you a slurry instead of a solution. Leave it to our tech team to change both the oil and filter.
