When should I get my oil changed?
In order to know with 100% certainty when you should be getting your oil changed, you should check your owner’s manual for a maintenance schedule. There are several services that you need to take care of in intervals, with getting your oil change – as mentioned – being one of the most common. How often you should be getting it changed might vary from vehicle to vehicle, depending on its age, the type of oil it requires and many other factors. A good rule of thumb, however, is to get it changed every six months or 7,500 miles – whichever comes first.
What else should I get done?
It is incredibly common practice for technicians to replace your oil filter when they change your oil, but it’s important to double check just in case. Even if you change your oil, if you continue to use the same dirty old filter, the benefits of your oil change won’t really come to fruition. You might also consider having other minor things done as well, if your technician doesn’t offer them. A multi-point inspection, rotating your tires, balancing your tires, and similar services are all great to do. Remember to check the maintenance schedule in your owner’s manual, it will likely tell you what else you should get done on a similar schedule.
