How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Acura Oil Change

 

Your Acura vehicle’s health is nearly as important as your health because the safety of you and your family could depend on the health of your vehicle. Regular oil changes are crucial to your vehicle’s health on Milford roads and will keep it running smoothly for many years. Recent improvements in oil and auto engine technologies mean you can go much longer between oil changes. Most new Acura models today have an oil change frequency somewhere between 7,500 and 10,000 miles, but it’s always best to check your owner’s manual for specific recommendations for your make and model. If you have questions, contact us at Acura of Milford.

Recommended Oil Change Frequency 

So, back to the question, “How often should you change your oil?” Some automobiles have a higher oil change frequency than others do, but the general opinion is to change your oil about every 7,000-10,000 miles. If your travels around New Haven often involve any of the types of driving below, you may need to adjust your oil change frequency and do it more often:

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

Oil Change Frequency Tips

Most Fairfield drivers could use some oil change tips. If you’re one of them, keep reading, and if you have questions about car care for your new Acura, call the auto pros in the Acura of Milford service center. 

  • Find out if you should use synthetic or conventional oil on your vehicle. It should specify it in your owner’s manual. Synthetic oil costs more but will last longer on Bridgeport roads.
  • All oil eventually degrades, even if your car isn’t driven regularly. If you don’t drive often, still make sure you change your oil at least twice a year.
  • Always change your oil filter when you change your oil. The parts department at Acura of Milford can help you get the correct oil filter for your Acura.

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

Check your oil level monthly to reduce the risk of issues as you drive around Milford. Watch for changes in your oil’s color and texture. These can be signs of potentially serious problems. When you see that you’re low on oil or need service for your vehicle, schedule a service appointment at Acura of Milford.
