How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

We’re often asked by Dayton drivers how often cars need an oil change. In the past, experts have recommended that a vehicle’s oil be changed every 3,000 miles. However, today most vehicles can go anywhere between 7,000-10,000 miles before their next oil change. Although, it’s important to keep in mind that this is a broad guideline and there are factors that will impact this such as whether or not you use your vehicle for heavy-duty tasks like towing large objects, off-roading, racing, or commercial use. 

What Happens if You Don’t Change Your Car’s Oil? 

Your vehicle’s engine relies on clean, fresh oil to operate properly. Oil lubricates the moving parts in the car’s engine, preventing friction and overheating. Oil also collects debris as it moves throughout the engine and carries it to the oil filter. As a result, over time that filter and oil are filled with contaminants and will need to be replaced. When you neglect to get an oil change near Cleveland, TN, here are some of the issues and indicators you’ll notice: 

  • Check engine and/or oil change lights are illuminated 
  • Knocking sound coming from the engine
  • Dark and dirty oil 
  • Smoke emitting from the exhaust pipe 
  • Engine overheating

How Often Should You Check Your Vehicle’s Oil Level?

We recommend checking your oil level at least once a month so you can catch any leaks in the oil system. It’s critical to remember that small leaks can easily result in larger issues and cause damage to the entire engine due to low oil pressure. You should also be sure to check for any change to your oil’s color, as well as if there are any metal particles in the oil. If you’re low on oil or notice any other issues, just visit our service department located near Ringgold, GA and we’ll take a look at it.
