Learn more about oil change frequency and other oil-related service tips from the team at Sheehan Cadillac. 

Recommended Oil Change Frequency

We mentioned driving habits as one of the factors that can make it necessary to get more frequent oil changes in the Pompano Beach area. Some of those habits incudes off-roading, regularly driving down rough or unpaved roads, commercial driving, racing, and heavy towing. They all make your engine work harder, which depletes oil and makes it dirty faster. But the opposite type of driving also merits attention when it comes to oil change frequency: if you have a car that’s not driven very often it should still get an oil change twice a year. Oil breaks down over time, even when a car isn’t in use. No matter when or why you’re getting an oil change in the Fort Lauderdale area, always make sure you’re getting a new oil filter too. 

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

Once a month you should take a few minutes to check your oil level. Make sure your oil is filled to the proper level and that it’s clean without debris or small metal particles in it. Debris can cause damage to your engine, while metal particles are a sign that there’s a problem with an engine component. If you see metal, don’t waste time — bring your car to our service center
