How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Service Technician changing the oil on a vehicle


Oil change is one of the routine maintenance that you need to keep driving your Chevrolet vehicle in the Pace area. So how often should you change your oil? While the general recommendation is once every 7,000-10,000 miles, most new Chevrolet models will require an oil change once every 7,500-10,000 miles. However, you should check your owner’s manual for accurate information for your specific model! As one of the Chevy owner’s benefits, you can view all of the service records conveniently through Chevrolet Complete Care. Learn more with Sandy And Bubba's Milton Chevrolet below.

Factors Affecting Oil Change Frequency

Even with the proper frequency in your owner’s manual, that number can change depending on how you drive your vehicle on the Navarre roads. If you do any of the following driving, then you can expect to change your oil more often:

  • Off-roading
  • Commercial use
  • Heavy towing
  • Racing

Oil Change Tips from Sandy And Bubba's Milton Chevrolet

While how often you should change your oil is the main concern of this maintenance service, it is not the only part you should pay attention to. See some tips our service technicians have for you below:

  • Does your Chevy use synthetic or conventional oil? If you’re not sure, take a look at your owner’s manual! You should know that synthetic oil is more expensive, but it lasts longer.
