How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Adding oil to engine

It’s essential to stay on top of your routine maintenance so that you and your passengers stay safe on South Phoenix streets. Routine oil changes help keep your vehicle running smoothly, and over the years, advancements in oil and engine technologies make it so you can go longer between changes. On average, new Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram models have an oil change frequency of 7,500 to 10,000 miles. Verify with the vehicle’s owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommended schedule, or contact us at Bill Luke Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram to schedule your service today!

Oil Change Frequency

Like many car services, oil change frequency can change depending on the model and use; however, the general time frame is around 7,000 to 10,000 miles. Do you often find yourself wondering, “How often should you change your oil?”. If you use your vehicle for any of these activities around Glendale, you may need to increase your change frequency:

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

Additional Oil Change Tips

Keep these oil change tips in mind when it comes to your vehicle’s oil, and if you have questions, contact the team of technicians in the Bill Luke Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram service center.

  • The vehicles’ owner’s manual has the recommended oil type, either synthetic or conventional oil. Synthetic oil tends to cost more, but it lasts longer in the vehicle.
  • Even if you don’t drive your vehicle, you should change the oil at least twice a year. The oil continues to degrade even when the vehicle isn’t moving.
  • If you’re performing an oil change at home, be sure to replace the oil filter as well. Our parts center can quickly help you find the right oil and oil filter for your vehicle.

Checking the Oil Level

Another indicator of the overall health of your vehicle is the oil’s color and texture. It’s recommended that you check your oil level at least once a month, so you can stay informed of any problem before you’re on Laveen streets.
