How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

To maintain the health of your vehicle, changing your oil on a regular basis is essential. For years, experts would recommend an oil change every 3,000 miles, but with advances in the engine and oil technology, the interval has been expanded. Now, most vehicles should get an oil change between 7,500 and 10,000 miles. We recommend checking your owner’s manual for detailed information about your vehicle’s oil change frequency, or keeping an eye on Honda Maintenance Minder if your car is equipped with it.

Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

Although the broad guidelines of 7,000-10,000 are existent, some vehicles will need an oil change sooner. If any of the situations below apply to you, check in with the Honda of Lincoln Service Center near Omaha to figure out how soon you’ll need to bring in your vehicle:

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

More Oil Change Tips

Before visiting our Gretna-area service facility, you can learn how to change your oil and become familiar with some helpful facts about oil changes. If you have any questions, call our Service Center at 402-437-1222.

  • An oil change twice a year is highly recommended even if you don’t use your car that much. Oil continuously breaks down over time whether your vehicle is driven daily or not.
  • Regardless of your oil change frequency, the technicians should always replace the oil filter when doing an oil change. If you’re doing a DIY oil change, visit the parts department at Honda of Lincoln to pick up an oil filter.
  • Need to know whether to use conventional vs. synthetic oil? Read through your owner’s manual; synthetic oil can be more expensive but certain vehicles might need it.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

Checking the oil level at least once a month can help you catch oil leaks before they become serious and cause damage to your engine. Along with checking the oil level, check for distinct changes in your oil’s color and any metal particles floating in the oil. Those are signs of a potentially critical problem with your vehicle. Schedule a service appointment at Honda of Lincoln today if you’re noticing any issues or are low on oil.
