Changing the oil does so much for your vehicle. Think of the oil as your engine’s blood. If it gets dirty or clogged, your engine will get sick. Avoid this with regular oil changes.

What’s Regular?

Most auto mechanics recommend you change your oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, but the duration between changes depends on your vehicle’s make, model, and engine size. Check your owner’s manual for the recommended maintenance schedule, and then consider whether you

  • Drive long distances every day
  • Drive in stop-and-go traffic
  • Drive through rough terrain
  • Pull trailers regularly

If you do any of the above, you should probably get your oil changed more often. We can customize your oil change service schedule by combining your manufacturer’s recommendations with your driving habits to ensure you have clean oil running through your engine at all times.

What About Extended Changes?

Admittedly, some of today’s engines can go longer between oil changes, so let’s talk about that. For example, if you drive a new Toyota and use synthetic oil, you may be able to go 7,500 to 10,000 miles between lube, oil, and filters. If you drive a BMW and use the same oil type, you might be able to extend your service visits out to every 15,000 miles. Again, it depends on your vehicle and driving habits, so let’s discuss the best options for you in person.

Should I Use Synthetic Oil?

Not necessarily. As with the oil change duration, we’ll consult your owner’s manual and take a look at your engine to determine the best oil type and weight. Weather also plays a factor, as different oil weights tend to work better during Michigan’s harsh winters. Don’t worry. We’re experts in all things oil, so we’ll know right away which oil to use in your engine and we’ll tell you in detail why it’s the best choice.
