How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Oil change frequency is important in maintaining your vehicle’s health. In the past, Toyota experts and manufacturers recommended that drivers change their oil every 3,000 miles, but thanks to advances in oil and engine technology, the recommended oil change intervals have been extended. These days, most vehicles can go between 7,500 and 10,000 miles between oil changes. It’s a good idea to check your owner’s manual for more specific instructions about how often you should change your oil.


Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

While 7,000-10,000 miles is just a guideline, certain vehicles may need the engine oil changed sooner. If this applies to your vehicle, check with Oak Lawn Toyota near Evergreen Park to see how soon you should bring your vehicle in:

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

More Oil Change Tips

Toyota car owners know the importance of frequent oil changes, but the Oak Lawn Toyota service center has these important facts on oil changes to check out.

  • Even if you don’t drive your car much, an oil change is still needed at least twice a year. Car oil breaks down over time even if your car isn’t being used.
  • Whenever you get your motor oil changed at the Oak Lawn Toyota service center, they should replace the oil filter as well. You can visit the parts department at for an oil filter if you’re doing a DIY oil change.
  • Wondering whether to use synthetic vs. conventional oil? Refer to your owner’s manual. Synthetic oil can cost more, but some vehicles require it.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

Checking your oil level at least once a month helps catch any potential leaks in the oil system. After all, without oil, your Toyota vehicle can get damaged. Make sure you also check for any changes to your engine oil’s color, as well as the appearance of any metal particles in the motor oil. These are signs of serious problems. If you’re low on oil or notice another issue, schedule a service appointment with Oak Lawn Toyota today.
