Your oil change frequency depends on what vehicle you’re driving, how you’re driving it, and sometimes where you’re driving it. What’s important to note is that changing your oil in a timely manner is vital to the health of your vehicle and, by extension, the safety of those inside it.
This is part of why there have been so many improvements in oil and engine technologies over the past decade – improvements that help Matthews-area residents drive much farther before changing their oil. Now, most modern Porsche models have an oil change frequency between 7,500 and 10,000 miles. Of course, you should always check your owner’s manual for specifics for your make and model. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact Hendrick Porsche.
Recommended Oil Change Frequency
So, how often should you change your oil? Like we said, that depends on the car, as some have a higher oil change frequency than others. However, the general rule of thumb is to change your oil every 7,500-10,000 miles.
It’s also important to factor in certain driving activities as well. If driving around Indian Trail involves any of the following, you likely need to change your oil more frequently:
- Commercial use
- Heavy towing
Oil Change Frequency Tips
There are also some other important factors to keep in mind when you change your oil. If you have any questions any of these tips, call the experts at Hendrick Porsche’s service center.
- Does your car use synthetic or conventional oil? Check your owner’s manual to find out. Synthetic oil lasts longer than conventional, but costs more.
- Oil breaks down and thickens over time, whether the car is driven on a consistent basis or not. This means that even if you don’t drive often, the oil will still deteriorate, and you should still change your oil at least twice per year.
- Changing your oil filter is just as important as changing your oil, so change it whenever you change your oil. Our parts center can help you get the right oil filter for your Porsche.
How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?
Checking your oil level at least once a month will allow you to avoid any problems on Pineville streets. If your oil changes color or texture, that could be the sign of a serious problem. If you notice that, see that you’re low on oil, or need auto service, schedule service with us at Hendrick Porsche.
