How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Adding oil to engine
Keeping up to date with the oil change schedule for your Cadillac car or SUV is the best way to keep it running safely on Hollywood-area roads. As a key part of routine vehicle maintenance, oil changes boost performance and efficiency while extending the life of your engine. While the rule used to be that a vehicle’s oil should be changed every 3,000 miles, recent advancements in oil and engine technology have increased that interval to between 7,500 and 10,000 miles. It’s best that you should check your owner’s manual to find the specific recommended conventional or synthetic oil change frequency for your Cadillac model. Learn more about how often to change car oil in this guide from the service team at Cadillac of Beverly Hills.

Cadillac Oil Change Frequency

Planning on getting an oil change every 7,500 to 10,000 miles is a good rule of thumb, but there are certain driving situations that can affect how often to change the car oil. If any of the following apply to you, the service techs at Cadillac of Beverly Hills can help you to determine a Cadillac oil change schedule that will best suit your driving style:

  • Heavy towing
  • Commercial use
  • Off-road driving
  • Racing

Cadillac Oil Change Tips

The recommended oil change frequency for your Cadillac vehicle is designed to help you maintain peak performance levels on the roads in and around Culver City. Check out the following oil change tips from the experts in our Service Center:

  • Plan on getting an oil change at least twice a year, even if you don’t drive your car every day. Engine oil breaks down over time, even if you are not driving your car regularly.
  • A new oil filter needs to be installed whenever the oil is changed. If you plan on changing the oil yourself, you’ll find the correct oil filter for your Cadillac model in the Cadillac of Beverly Hills Parts Center.
  • Check your owner’s manual to find out whether your Cadillac uses synthetic oil or conventional oil. Synthetic oil often costs more, but it is required for some vehicles.

How Often Should You Get a Synthetic Oil Change?

Most synthetic oils last between 7,500 miles and 15,000 miles, depending on the vehicle and synthetic oil grade used. We recommended that you check your owner’s manual for the specifics regarding the synthetic oil change frequency for your Cadillac. Synthetic oil is produced through a specialized refinement process that increases its effectiveness and helps it to last longer than conventional oil. It is typically required for high-performance engines because it can maintain its viscosity at higher temperatures and has increased resistance to oxidation, which allows it to stay cleaner for longer.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

Checking your oil level at least once a month will help you catch any leaks or other problems before they become more serious. The oil should be amber in color. If it is darker or muddied, or if you see any metal particles in it, you should schedule a service appointment with Cadillac of Beverly Hills as soon as possible. These are both signs of a potentially serious problem that could lead to costly repairs down the road.
