Oil Change Frequency

oil-change

The oil in your engine is an essential fluid that keeps every part of your engine lubricated and moves heat away from the engine block. As you drive your vehicle through Asheville, your oil will age, pick up contaminants, and lose its viscosity. Because of this, routine oil changes are vital to your vehicle’s health. While oil changes don’t take very long, most vehicles will need an oil change every six months. Some newer Hyundai models can go a year or more – depending on your driving habits – before needing an oil change, however. Learn more about how often you should change your oil with Hyundai of Asheville below.

How Often You Should Change Your Oil 

Your oil change frequency will depend on your Hyundai maintenance schedule. Vehicles that use conventional oil will need an oil change every six months (or 5,000 – 7,500 miles) while vehicles that use synthetic oil can go for a year (or 10,000 miles) before needing an oil change. However, if you frequently use your vehicle for commercial use, off-roading, racing, or heavy towing in Black Mountain then you may need to get your oil changed more frequently. Follow the tips below on oil change frequency:

  • Check your owner’s manual to see if you should use synthetic or conventional oil on your car. 
  • Oil eventually breaks down, even when the car isn’t driven on a consistent basis in Hendersonville. 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 for your Chevy.

Check Your Oil Levels Monthly

In order to keep an eye on your oil level and check the consistency of your oil, you should check it monthly along with your transmission fluid, windshield wiper fluid, and tire pressure. Changes in your oils color and texture indicate that it’s time for an oil change and could lead to serious problems if they’re ignored. You can easily schedule a service appointment online at Hyundai of Asheville if you need to have your oil replaced.
