Before heading out on your next summer adventure, keep an eye on your vehicle’s oil level.

It is recommended that you should check your oil levels once per month and your oil should be changes every 3,000-7,000 miles, depending on a number of driving conditions. If you find that you are regularly using your vehicle for towing, driving for extended periods at high altitudes, live in an area with extreme heat, or drive through dusty areas, more frequent oil changes may be in order. Driving styles that include rapid acceleration and deceleration also require more frequent oil changes.

Beyond mileage, other ways to know your vehicle is in need of an oil change are:

  • Engine has become noisy or jumpy

  • Oil has turned black

Over time, dirt can cause corrosion and decrease the life of your engine. As time goes on, oil breaks down and turns to sludge.

An engine made to work too hard will have more problems down the road as well as a shorter life span. However, routine oil and filter changes help remove particles and sludge.
