How often should I change my oil?
Making sure that your vehicle has regular maintenance is essential to its upkeep.
While the average range for oil life tends to be between 3,000 and 7,000 miles, every situation is different. At Ben Mynatt Nissan, our award-winning service department understands that several different factors play into the amount of time you should wait between oil changes.
Here are just a few things that can affect your oil changes:
- Type of Oil Used
- Frequency of Driving
- Amount of Hauling Done
- Weather and Environment
It’s also been noted that drivers who have long commutes to and from work typically need oil changes more frequently. Continuous stop and go traffic day after day tends to be hard on the quality of your oil.
Drivers should consult their vehicle owner’s manual for the best information on their car, truck, or SUVs particular needs.
