How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

 
Your car’s engine, much like the heart of your vehicle, depends on motor oil for smooth operation. To keep your vehicle performing at its best, changing your oil every 7,500 to 10,000 miles is generally recommended. For more specific guidance, refer to your owner’s manual and take into account other factors. At Ancira Buick GMC, we stress the importance of grasping these factors to ensure your vehicle is prepared for the varied driving conditions in San Antonio.

Oil Change Frequency Factors

While the traditional 3,000-mile oil change interval is a thing of the past, specific driving activities demand more frequent attention. For those navigating the varied terrains of Comfort and Kerrville, such as commercial driving, off-roading, heavy towing, or racing, it’s advisable to shorten the oil change interval. 

Additionally, the type of oil used matters. Synthetic oil, engineered for stability amidst temperature fluctuations, is a wise choice. The engine type is also a crucial consideration, as different vehicles may have unique oil requirements. Looking for an oil change near you? Schedule your vehicle with our team if it’s time!

Oil Maintenance Tips

One aspect of engine care is understanding how often to change your oil. Consider the following maintenance tips for your vehicle’s “lifeblood” to ensure a smooth ride in Boerne:

  • Regularly drive your vehicle to prevent the oil from breaking down faster in idle conditions.
  • Store your vehicle in a heated garage during winter to prevent oil thickening, ensuring proper lubrication.
  • Refer to your owner’s manual for oil type recommendations—whether conventional or synthetic—and adhere to the specifications.
  • Replace the oil filter with each change to ensure efficient removal of contaminants from the oil.
