It's no secret that to have a strong engine (and as a result, a powerful vehicle), you need to provide regular synthetic oil changes. However, how often do you need to do these replacements? If you're wondering the same thing, this post will shine a light on the mystery.

How to Tell if Your Vehicle Requires a Synthetic Oil Change

  1. First, if you've driven X number of miles on the same oil, you have to change it. This is a vague tip, but it highly depends on your vehicle, how old it is, and the use you give it. Refer to your owner's manual or to a professional mechanic for an accurate number.
  2. Let's say you don't use your vehicle much at all. Even in those cases, if it's been over a year since the last replacement, you will need to change it. This is because it can thin out and leave your engine exposed.
  3. It's imperative that you check your synthetic oil often. This is because you should note when it becomes darker and coarser, as this means it's dirty and won't do a good job at protecting your engine (in fact, it could actually damage it more).
  4. Not only should the synthetic oil be clean in order to lubricate and protect your engine, but it should also be at the right levels. Use a dipstick to find out the oil level; if it's lower than it should be, replace it and check for leaks.
  5. The most obvious and telling sign of all that you need new oil is in your dashboard: if you notice the "oil" and/or "check engine" signs are on, it may mean that it's high time for a replacement.
  6. Last but not least, you should look to your own engine for signs: if it's exhibiting odd behavior (like making noises or jumping around) it may just need new oil. Still, be sure to visit a mechanic to guarantee nothing else is wrong.
