How Often Should You Change Your Oil If You Have an Older Car?

Depending on your vehicle’s age, the type of oil used and your driving habits, your oil change intervals will vary.

Older vehicles and engines with more mileage will need more frequent oil changes necessary. If you own a car that’s made in 2007 and older
, change your oil every 5,000 miles or six months, or whichever comes first.

If you have less typical driving habits, such as frequent off-road driving, towing or carrying heavy loads, excessive idling or driving at low speeds for long distances, you should perform an oil every 5,000 miles or six months for vehicles 2008 and newer, and every 3,000 miles or three months for cars 2007 and older.

Lastly, when you have an older car, make sure you budget for regular preventative maintenance to keep your car running smoothly.
