How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Mechanic pouring oilTo keep your new Nissan running smoothly, it’s important to regularly change the oil. It used to be that you needed to change the oil every 3,000 miles, but with new oil and engine technology, this interval has been extended. Most vehicles today can go about 5,000 miles between oil changes or every six months. These are estimates. It’s always best to check with your vehicle’s owner’s manual for more specific instructions about how often you should change your oil.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

5,000 miles is a broad guideline, assuming everyone has the same driving habits. Some drivers with certain vehicles will need their oil changed sooner. If any of these circumstances apply to you, check with our Douglass Nissan of Waco service center near Woodway to see how soon you should bring your vehicle in:

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

  • Wondering whether to use synthetic vs. conventional oil? Check your owner’s manual. Synthetic oil can cost more, but some vehicles require it.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

You should check your oil at least once a month. This can help catch leaks in the system as well as other issues arising.
