When to Get Your Oil Changed at Bill Colwell Ford

At Bill Colwell Ford, we know our drivers understand the importance of vehicle maintenance. Steady upkeep of routine procedures such as oil changes helps maintain the quality of your used or new truck or car. If you are unsure of when to seek your next oil change, here are a few tips to guide you.

Is it Time for an Oil Change? 

The start of the fall season is an ideal time to consider an oil change for your vehicle. During this seasonal transition, it's the perfect time to prep your vehicle before harsher and colder weather arrives.

You can also heed manufacturer recommendations for your vehicle, which you can find in your vehicle’s owner’s manual. A general rule of thumb is to schedule an oil change approximately every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or every six months. 

Of course there are other factors that might increase the frequency of your vehicle’s oil change needs. Some considerations include:

-Whether you rely on your vehicle for heavy hauling and towing
-Frequent off-roading on gravel, mud, or dusty roads
-Weather conditions such as extreme heat or cold
-Driving at low speeds for long distances
-Regular driving in stop-and-go city traffic 

Do any of these items apply to your vehicle usage? Ask one of our experienced technicians for personalized advice on your vehicle’s oil change needs.
