When Do I Need to Schedule an Oil Change?

Our team recommends that you schedule an oil change at least every 12 months, if you accrue a lot of mileage. You may, however, need to book oil changes more frequently.

How often do you need to schedule an oil change? Most engines typically require an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles.

What if you drive a vehicle that boasts a high-performance engine? You may need an oil change every 15,000 miles.

So, which recommendation is right for you? Consult your owner's manual to check the ideal frequency of appointments. If you think you need an oil change close to Ithaca, you can also speak a factory-certified technician on our team.

How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

An oil change can take approximately 45 minutes to complete. During an oil change, a factory-certified technician:

  • Identifies proper motor oil for your engine
  • Discards old oil and oil filter
  • Installs new oil filter
  • Replenishes motor oil supply

The motor oil for your vehicle wraps critical parts of your engine in a substance that cools and guards it. Over time, the oil thins, so scheduling an oil change helps protect your engine's performance.

When you book an oil change, it's important to find a factory-certified technician who can look after your engine.
