How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Emptying Car Oil

Oil is critical to your engine’s health, and changing it regularly is part of ensuring your vehicle stays in good shape. Wondering how often you should change your Acura model’s oil? It depends on your specific model, model year, and driving habits, but most experts agree that modern vehicles should have their oil changed between 7,500 and 10,000 miles of driving. Always consult your owner’s manual for exact instructions on how often you should change your oil.

Guidelines for Oil Change Frequency

Changing your oil every 7,000 to 10,000 miles is a broad guideline, but certain vehicles should get more frequent oil changes. Check with Fresno Acura near Clovis to see how soon you should bring your vehicle in if you’re not sure or can’t find the info in your owner’s manual.

  • Your vehicle’s oil breaks down over time even if you don’t drive very often. Even if you don’t use your car much, you should still get an oil change at least twice a year.
  • You should always get an oil filter replacement when you’re getting your oil changed. If you’re performing a DIY oil change, you can buy a replacement oil filter at our parts center.
  • If you’re unsure whether to use synthetic or conventional oil, check your owner’s manual. Although synthetic oil can cost more, some vehicles require it.

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

Check your oil level once a month to catch any leaks in the system and ensure both you and your vehicle’s safety. You should also check for any change in the oil’s color or any metal particles in the oil. If you notice one of these issues or that oil is low, schedule a service appointment with Fresno Acura today.
