Time for an Oil Change | Berryhill Auto Care

When it’s time for an oil change, see the Berryhill auto care experts at Same Day.

You were driving home from the Oilers game last night when it occurred to you that you haven’t had your oil changed in a while. You’re not sure how long, because you’re not great at keeping with such things and the little sticker on your windshield has faded. But your car seems to be running fine.

Still, how often should you change your oil?

A good place to start is your car owner’s manual, which generally says something like, change your oil every so-many thousands of miles. But even that might not be really helpful because, as Carfax.com points out, “you’ll likely see two separate oil-change intervals listed, one for ‘normal’ use and the other for ‘severe’ operation. For example, a car’s normal use might warrant a change every 7,500 miles, while severe driving could require a change every 3,000 miles.”

Deciding whether you’re a “normal” driver or subject your car to “severe” use can be tricky. If you think, for example, that repeated trips of less than 5 miles puts you in the “normal” category, you’d be wrong.

Carfax.com says, “Severe use can include subjecting your car or truck to at least one of the following conditions in a typical week:

  • “Extensive idling or stop-and-go traffic.
  • “Cold driving conditions (Less than 10 degrees.)
  • “Extreme heat (More than 90 degrees.)
  • “Extreme humidity.
  • “Repeated short trips of less than 5 miles.
  • “Towing a trailer or hauling heavy materials.”

Carfax.com concludes, “Even if you only rack up a modest number of miles over the course of a year, car care experts suggest you still change a car’s oil at least every six months. That’s because as motor oil ages, it loses its effectiveness and can lead to premature wear. Also, be sure to replace the oil filter with every change.”
