How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Driver’s know that maintaining their vehicle’s health is essential to staying safe on the roads of Houston. This includes keeping up with routine oil changes. Thanks to improvements in oil and engine technologies, drives can go longer in between oil change frequency. Most new Hyundai vehicles can have their oil changed between 7,500 and 10,000 miles. However, it’s still good to check your vehicle’s owner’s manual for specific recommendations for your make and model. Don’t hesitate to contact our service center if you have any questions.

Recommended Oil Change Frequency 

So, how often should you change your oil? Some cars will have a higher oil change frequency than others and vice versa, but the general rule is to have the oil changed every 7,000 to 10,000 miles. If you do a lot of driving around the Houston area that includes the types of driving listed below, you may need to update your oil change frequency accordingly:

  • Off-roading
  • Commercial use
  • Racing
  • Heavy towing

Oil Change Frequency Information

For additional oil change tips, don’t hesitate to reach out to the factory-trained and certified technicians at our Baytown service center. Otherwise, be sure to keep the following oil change tips in mind:

  • Check your owner’s manual to see if your car uses synthetic or conventional oil. Synthetic oil costs more but lasts longer.
  • Oil eventually breaks down, even if you don’t regularly drive the vehicle. Don’t drive that often? You should still change your oil at least twice a year.
  • Be sure to have your oil filter changed when it’s time to change the oil. Our parts center can help find the filter you need for your Hyundai vehicle. 

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

You should check your oil level at least once a month to avoid any issues while commuting around Houston. Things like changes in your vehicle’s oil color and texture can be signs of major issues. If you’re low on oil or need any additional oil services, schedule your service appointment right from home. Be sure to check out our service specials to save on your next visit with us!
