Should You Change Your Oil Every 5000 Miles?

How often should you change your oil? An oil change is a quintessential auto repair service. Whenever you think of auto repair, you can’t help but think of an oil change. However, you would be surprised to learn how many people don’t know when to get an oil change, or forget about it all together. The team at Japanese Carmasters is here to help, starting with the question of when your vehicle needs an oil change. 

The typical answer is “you should get your oil changed every 5,000 miles.” However, this answer depends on numerous things, including your driving habits, like stop and go traffic or speeding. If you drive under severe conditions, like you spend quite a bit of time driving in the mountains, you may need to change your oil more frequently. If you never drive your vehicle, you also won’t have to get an oil change as frequently. The answer to this question really depends on you! 

The team at Japanese Carmasters is here to help you answer this question. We will try and figure out exactly when your vehicle needs an oil change, based on the make and model of your vehicle, along with your driving habits. We will decide what is best for you and what you are looking for. Together, we can keep your vehicle performing in tip-top shape for the long-term.
