How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Oil change in an car engine


Regular and timely oil changes are a key part of auto maintenance. While experts used to recommend an oil change frequency of every 3,000 miles, innovations in engine technology allow today’s drivers to wait much longer between oil changes. Most modern vehicles can be driven between 7,500 and 10,000 miles before they need fresh oil. Join the Land Rover Tampa service team for a look at how often you should change the oil in your Land Rover vehicle to keep it running at its peak for years to come in Wesley Chapel.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

Every 7,000 to 10,000 miles is a good general guideline, but how often should you change your oil if your car takes synthetic oil or a synthetic blend? The type of oil you use — along with factors like your vehicle’s age and performance capabilities — can impact the proper oil change frequency for your vehicle. Refer to your owner’s annual for more information, and contact a Land Rover service center in Wesley Chapel for oil change frequency guidance if you routinely use your Land Rover for:

  • Racing
  • Off-roading
  • Commercial purposes
  • Heavy towing and hauling

More Oil Change Tips From Land Rover Tampa

Before scheduling your oil change service in Brandon, here are a few more car-care tips to keep in mind:

  • Synthetic oil and synthetic oil blends cost more than conventional motor oil, so you’ll pay a higher oil change price if your car takes those oil types.
  • You may need to reset your check engine dash light after an oil change.
  • Oil continues to break down even when you aren’t driving your car — so even if you aren’t putting any miles on the odometer, your car needs an oil change every six months.
  • If you’re performing a DIY oil change, remember to replace the oil filter as well. Grab some from the parts department at your local Land Rover dealership.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

Keeping up with your recommended service intervals is a great place to start, but checking your oil between service visits is an easy way to avoid major repairs. Check the level in your car’s oil reservoir once a month to catch oil system leaks early, before low oil levels can cause any damage. You should also inspect the texture and quality of the oil. If you see any particles or debris, schedule service so that an expert can determine the cause.
