Oil changes are necessary and recommended for a reason. Oil and filter changes help remove build-up and keep your engine running at peak performance – not only will frequent oil changes help the life of your engine, but they will also improve gas mileage. New oil leads to better performance and healthier parts. Getting an oil change is one of the most beneficial & preventative maintenance services you can do.
How Often Should I Change my Oil?
A good guideline is:
- Every 5000 km if you use conventional oil
- Every 10,000 km if you use synthetic oil
Keep in mind different factors affect the interval needed. From what type of vehicle you drive, the age of your car, motor oils you have used, the conditions you drive in (hot weather, Edmonton winters, pulling a trailer, stop and go traffic), etc. If you don’t drive your vehicle a lot – it is still recommended to get an oil change at least once or twice a year as moisture accumulates in your engine and oil becomes less effective as it ages.
It is a good idea to check your owner’s manual on a new vehicle to keep up with the recommended maintenance. If you are unsure perform a quick check on your engine’s oil. When you do a visual inspection and see the oil is getting thicker and unusually dark then it is time for an oil change!
