When Should I Get My Oil Changed?

The rule of thumb used to be to get your oil changed every three months or 3,000 miles, whichever came first. New engineering and research has changed that common wisdom, though, and it’s generally agreed that most vehicles are okay with getting an oil change around every 5,000 miles.

These intervals can vary slightly depending on the vehicle, though, so it’s important to check your owner’s manual or get in touch with your Cicero service center to make sure you know the particulars for your make and model.

Why Are Oil Changes So Important?

Oil is the lubricant that prevents excessive friction between the pistons and the inner walls of the housing. If you wait too long to get your oil changed, the oil can run low or get filled with debris. When that happens, excessive engine heating can occur, decreasing the performance and efficiency of the vehicle and putting you and those around you at risk.

How Do I Change My Oil?

If you would like to change your own oil, there are a number of steps you will need to take, including:

  • Choosing the right kind of oil
  • Preparing supplies and vehicle
  • Draining oil from the drain plug
  • Tightening the drain plug
  • Changing the oil filter
  • Adding new oil
  • Making sure the oil level is right
