Keeping your vehicle running smoothly on Pottstown roads for years to come depends on how well you care for your vehicle. This means regular oil changes, tire rotations, and more. So how often should you change your oil? Typically, it’s recommended that you have your oil changed every 7,500 – 10,000 miles. And with improvements in new engine technologies, you can go longer without having your vehicle’s oil changed. Learn more about the recommended oil change frequency and more with our service team at Springfield Mitsubishi - Reading in Reading today.

Recommended Oil Change Frequency

As mentioned above, it’s important to have your oil changed regularly, but how often should you change your oil? This depends on your driving habits, your model of vehicle, and a few other factors. While the general oil change frequency is between 7,500 and 10,000 miles, you’ll want to be positive about your vehicle’s specific oil change frequency. To find this, simply contact our service team or check out your owner’s manual. Here are a few of the driving habits that may require a more frequent oil change service:

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

Oil Change Frequency Information

Interested in oil change tips and tricks? We can help with that as well. Here are a few oil change tips and tricks you can learn for the next time your vehicle is in need of service:

  • Check your owner’s manual to see if you should use synthetic or conventional oil on your car. Synthetic oil costs more but lasts longer.
  • Oil eventually breaks down, even when the car isn’t driven on a consistent basis. 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 Mitsubishi.

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

If you check your vehicle’s oil levels at least once a month, you should be able to avoid any issues while out and about in Lancaster. Make sure when you do this, you watch for changes in the oil’s color and texture as these can be signs of serious problems. You can also check if you’re low on oil. If this is the case, schedule service at our service center.
