How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Adding oil to engine


Regular oil changes are critical to your vehicle’s health. Over the last decade, innovation in oil and engine technologies help Ontario drivers to go much longer in oil change frequency. New vehicles can typically go 7,000-10,000 miles between oil changes. However, extraneous driving can cause your oil change frequency to increase. Always check your owner’s manual for specifics for your make and model, and if you have questions, contact John Elway's Crown Toyota.

Recommended Oil Change Frequency

How often should you change your oil? Some cars have a higher oil change frequency than others and vice versa, but the general rule is to change your oil every 7,000-10,000 miles. If your drives around Rancho Cucamonga or Eastvale regularly include any of the extraneous driving listed below, adjust your oil changes accordingly:

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

Oil Change Frequency Information

Would you like some oil change hacks? Here are some pro tips that will help you:

  • Check your owner’s manual to see if you should use synthetic or conventional oil on your car.
  • Oil breaks down, even when the car isn’t driven on a consistent basis. If you don’t drive often, you should still change your oil at least twice per year.
  • Make sure you change your oil filter whenever you change your oil. Our parts center can assist you in getting the right oil filter.

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

Here are steps to follow when checking your oil level:

  • Check your oil level at least once a month to avoid any problems during your Fontana commute.
  • A change in your oil’s color and texture can be a sign of serious problems, so schedule a service should this come up.
