To keep your oil clean and your engine healthy, a good rule of thumb is to change your oil and filter every 6-12 months or 6-12,000 miles.
Also check your oil level with the dipstick, if applicable, every time you fill up with gas. Check your oil for:
- bubbles or foam
- a milky appearance
- a strong smell of petrol
These signs could mean you have water or fuel contamination or your oil level could be too high. Bring your vehicle into us or another trusted technician right away.
If you change your oil yourself, be sure to dispose of it in an environmentally responsible manner.
