How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

oil being changed in car

In order to keep your vehicle running smoothly and healthily, changing your vehicle on a regular basis is vital. Experts recommend that you get your oil changed between ever 7,500 miles and 10,000 miles. This range is a general suggestion, however. Be sure to check your owner’s manual for a specific interval on how often your oil should be replaced.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

Although the general rule of thumb for an oil change is every 7,000 to 10,000 miles, some vehicles may need their oil changed after a shorter amount of time. The factors below will warrant more frequent oil changes:

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

More Oil Change Tips

Thinking about visiting our service center for an oil change? Before you do, be sure to read these helpful oil change tips from our team at Mercedes-Benz of Charleston below:

  • You’ll want to get an oil change at least twice a year, even if you don’t drive your car very often. Even if you aren’t using your car, the oil in your vehicle will break down over time.
  • Have the oil filter replaced every time you get your oil changed. Doing the oil change on your own? Get an oil filter at our parts department!
  • If you are deciding whether you should use synthetic oil or conventional oil, reference your owner’s manual. Some vehicles, usually one’s with high-performance engines, require synthetic oil.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

It is advised that you check your oil level once a month. This will allow you to find any leaks in the oil system and save you from serious damage and costly repairs. When checking your oil, you should keep an eye out for a change in your oil’s color or any metal particles in your oil, as both can be a sign of problems with your vehicle. If you notice anything strange when checking your oil level, schedule a service appointment with our team at Mercedes-Benz of Charleston.
