Changing your oil is one of the most routine and important aspects of car maintenance. While everyone knows that changing your oil is crucial, many don't know why or when they should get an oil change. At Lexus of Orange County, we serve Middletown, NY, and beyond by offering oil changes that meet or exceed brand standards.

Learn more about oil changes and how we're here to help.

When Should I Change My Oil?

We recommend changing your oil every 5,000 to 7,500 miles or six months, whichever comes first. While the time-honored standard of 3,000 miles still may apply to some cars, overall engine technology has improved to allow for longer intervals. Check your owner's manual and speak with our expert service team to discover the best interval for your car and driving habits.

If you tow, experience temperature extremes, or frequently drive in stop-and-go traffic, your oil change interval may be shorter since you are putting more stress on the engine.

The Importance of Oil Changes

Motor oil is essential for keeping your engine from building too much heat and friction. However, particles get past the filter, and the oil becomes less effective over time. If you leave old oil in your vehicle for too long, the heat and friction can damage your engine's components, leading to expensive repairs. It's much easier and affordable to keep up with routine oil changes than replace engine parts.
