How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Changing Oil

If you are looking to maintain optimal health for your vehicle, learning about oil change frequency is critical. Many Alpharetta drivers wonder how often should you change your oil. Luckily, our service experts here at Lou Sobh Kia are your go-to source for keeping you on track with your Kia maintenance schedule! In model years past, the general consensus on oil change frequency was every 3,000 miles.

However, recommendations have changed based on advancements in automotive technology. Many new vehicles can travel between 7,500 and 10,000 miles safely before an oil change becomes necessary. Check your owner’s manual for clear oil change directions and learn more with Lou Sobh Kia below!

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

As a general rule, an oil change every 7,000-10,000 miles may work just fine. However, if you drive under certain conditions you may need to get your oil changed more frequently. If any of the following apply to you, visit our service center near Dawsonville for clear directions on oil change frequency:

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

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

If you are curious about how often you should change your oil, you probably want to know when to check your oil levels. Checking your oil level once a month can be a great addition to your automotive care routine. Be sure to check for changes in the color of your oil and any metal particles that are present. Both could be signs of serious damage. Quality oil is essential to engine function and should be prioritized for a smooth Gainesville commute.
