How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

How often should you change your oil? This is a question the technicians at our Avondale service center receive quite often. Keeping your vehicle in top condition is important for the safety of both you and everyone else on the Peoria roads, and regular oil changes are one of the simplest, yet most important aspects of vehicle maintenance. Due to the recent innovations in vehicle and oil technology, you can actually go much further without an oil change than you could years ago. If you own a modern Nissan vehicle, you could go up to 7,500 to 10,000 miles. However, it’s important to consult your owner’s manual to be certain. Learn more about oil change frequency with the experts at Avondale Nissan. For more information, feel free to contact us anytime!


Regular Oil Change Frequency 

So, how often should you change your oil? Depending on which Nissan vehicle you own, oil change frequency can vary. Most vehicles can go anywhere between 7,500-10,000 miles. However, if your drives around Phoenix or Avondale involve any of the following conditions, you should change your oil more often:

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

More Information About Oil Change Frequency 

Let’s check out a few useful oil changing tips. You can always contact our service center if you have any additional questions:

  • You should always consult your owner’s manual to see if your vehicle takes traditional or synthetic oil. Synthetic oil can come with a higher cost, however, it lasts much longer. 
  • The oil in your vehicle’s engine will break down eventually, even if you don’t drive often. Therefore, we recommend changing your oil twice each year.
  • It’s important to change the oil filter when you change the oil. If you need a filter, you can get in touch with our parts department for your Nissan parts.

How Often to Check Your Oil Level

To make sure your vehicle is in top shape, it’s recommended to check your oil level at least twice per month. You should look for things such as any changes in the color and texture, as these could point to some more serious problems. However, if you notice anything out of the ordinary, be sure to schedule service with our expert service technicians.
