Signs You Need an Oil Change

  • Odd Noises – One of the first things you might notice when you need an oil change is an odd knocking sound in yo
  • Dirty Oil – Healthy engine oil has a clear amber color, while dirty will be dark brown or black. You should check your engine oil once a month to ensure it’s in good condition.
  • Check Engine Light or Oil Light – The check engine light has many causes, but one of them may be that your filter needs to be replaced, which usually coincides with an oil change. The oil light will also let you know that it's time to schedule an oil change.
  • Decreased Engine Performance – Old, dirty oil can't lubricate engine parts as effectively, which can lead to increased friction and decreased engine performance. Symptoms might include a lack of power or responsiveness when you press the gas pedal.
  • Mileage – This is the most common and straightforward indicator. Consult your car's owner's manual for the recommended oil change intervals based on mileage. It considers factors like oil type and typical driving conditions

How Often Should You Get an Oil Change

Like brake services and other preventative maintenance tasks, how often your vehicle will need an oil change depends on its make, model, and age, as well as the type of oil you use and your driving habits. Most vehicles need an oil change between 6,000 and 15,000 miles. Newer models that use synthetic oil will fall on the higher end of that range. Check your owner’s manual for recommendations based on your model, and when it’s time for your next oil change, book an appointment with Townsend Nissan.
