How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Adding oil to engine


The key to vehicle longevity is proper maintenance, and if you want your vehicle to run at its best for many years to come, routine service is required. This includes regular oil changes. How often should you change your oil? If you drive a newer vehicle around Hagatna and Dededo, your car will likely have an oil change frequency between 7,500 and 10,000 miles. We recommend taking a look at your owner’s manual to see what the manufacturer suggests for your particular make and model. 

Recommended Oil Change Frequency 

While the general rule of thumb for newer vehicles is 7,500-10,000 miles, recommended oil change frequency can vary for several reasons. Your driving habits, for example, can lead to the need for more frequent oil changes. If any of these driving situations apply to you, you will want to schedule an oil change around Yigo more often: 

  • Off-roading
  • Commercial use
  • Racing
  • Heavy towing

Oil Change Frequency Guide

Is it time for an oil change around Tamuning. Keep these tips in mind when you bring your vehicle in for service. 

  • Do you know if your vehicle needs conventional or synthetic oil? Synthetic oil is the more expensive of the two, but some models, especially high-performance vehicles, require it. However, the trade off is that it lasts longer. 
  • Check your oil level on a monthly basis and inspect its appearance. Changes in color and texture could be a sign that service is needed. 
  • Your vehicle will still need oil changes even if you do not do a lot of driving or the vehicle sits idle for long periods of time. Oil still breaks down over time regardless of whether the vehicle is being used. Your vehicle will still need an oil change at least twice a year. 
  • When performing an oil change, you should also replace the oil filter.
