How Long Your Vehicle Should Go Between Oil Change Services

There are many misconceptions about the length of time drivers should go between oil changes. The most common number that motorists may have heard is 3,000 miles or 3 months. However, this is no longer accurate for the majority of vehicles on the road today. The 3,000- mile number is the general rule for how long conventional oil will last. Most vehicles on the road today use full synthetic or semi-synthetic oil instead of conventional oil. Synthetic and semi-synthetic oil can last for up to 5,000 miles before an oil change service is necessary.

If it's been 5 months since your last oil change service and you haven't put 5,000 miles on your car, it may still be a good idea for you to get an oil change service. This is because oil can start to lose its lubrication over time, even if it's just sitting in the engine. Conventional oil is even more prone to this problem and should be replaced after 3 months no matter how many miles have been put on the odometer.

Types Of Automotive Oil

There are 3 main types of automotive oil that modern vehicles take. For many years, conventional oil was the most popular option. Synthetic oil and semi-synthetic oil have become very popular, but some drivers still prefer conventional oil for its low price. Synthetic oil is more effective and lasts longer, but it does cost a little more. Semi-synthetic oil finds the middle ground between these 2 options.

High-mileage oil is also commonly used for vehicles that have over 75,000 miles on the clock. High-mileage oil can be made from either semi-synthetic or full synthetic oil. It includes sealants that swell the seals in your engine to reduce or eliminate leaks.
