How often should I change my oil?

Oil Filters and Fluids

Critical parts of your engine are lubricated, cleaned and cooled by your car's oil and filter. Other specifically formulated fluids are used for the operation and protection of systems and components such as brakes, power steering, automatic transmissions, and cooling and axles. Your car may also be equipped with a variety of filters, including those for the transmission, fuel system and interior ventilation.

Typical Service

  • Change oil and filter every 3,000 miles or three months.
  • Many car manufacturers recommend extended oil drain intervals for some drivers.
  • If you regularly make short trips in your car, drive in stop-and-go traffic, idle for extended periods, drive in dusty or dirty air conditions, tow a trailer or live in a cold-weather region, stay within the 3,000 mile/three-month schedule.
  • For automatic transmissions, brakes, power steering and axles, vehicle-specific fluids should be used.
  • Coolant should be changed every two years or 24,000 miles on cars with ethylene glycol antifreeze.

Why Do I Need This Service?

Periodic oil and filter changes keep your engine clean on the inside. Dust, metallic shavings, condensation and even antifreeze can contaminate motor oil. Additives, which break down over time, are also subject to contamination.
