By sticking to a regular schedule for every oil change, San Antonio drivers can keep any vehicle in top condition. Advances in oil and engine technology mean that modern vehicles need an oil change less often than older cars — but experts recommend that you still take your car for an oil change every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. For exact specs for your vehicle, always be sure to check your owner’s manual. Learn more about why it’s crucial to keep up with your Land Rover maintenance schedule with these oil change frequency guidelines from Land Rover San Antonio.

Oil Change Tips

  • Have all the parts ready. Be sure to replace your oil filter at the same time you replace the oil. If you’re changing the oil yourself at home, you can get genuine filters from our Parts Department at Land Rover San Antonio.
  • Always stick to a maintenance schedule. You’ll still want to get an oil change at least twice a year, even if you drive the vehicle very little. Oil breaks down gradually over time, even without driving.

How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

The best way to know exactly when your vehicle is due for an oil change is to check the oil yourself. You’ll also be able to catch any leaks or oil system issues early and get them taken care of right away to minimize damage. When you pull the dipstick out, carefully inspect the oil. It should look clean and smooth, and be free of any loose particles. If it’s cloudy or you see flakes of metal, it’s time for an oil change. The next step is to perform a DIY oil change yourself, or schedule service at our service center in San Antonio.
