Signs You Need an Oil Change

As your engine oil nears the end of its lifespan, there are a few signs you should watch out for that can indicate it is happening. Should you notice any of these signs, we recommend that you reach out to our team for a service appointment. Signs include:

  • Engine Oil is Low or Discolored to a Dark Brown/Black
  • Decrease in Engine Performance or Fuel Efficiency
  • Smokey, Oily Smell

Different Types of Oil

There are four different types of engine oil that your engine might use. Conventional oil is what the standard was for many vehicles, and it still used in new options at our dealership. Many engines have been switching to synthetic oil, which provides a longer lifespan for your vehicle. A synthetic blend is a mix between synthetic oil and conventional for a mixture that helps you last longer, but isn't as expensive as full-synthetic options. Finally, high-mileage oils allow your vehicle to go for miles longer than other engine oil options.

How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Our Toyota experts recommend that you replace conventional oil every 6 months or 5,000 miles.  If using synthetic oil we recommend replacing every 12 months or 10,000 miles. This can depend on the conditions that you drive in, including traffic, as well as the type of driver you are.

An oil change is quick and easy, often taking no more than 30 minutes to complete. We're happy to schedule you for an oil change at your earliest convenience to ensure that we keep your vehicle running smoothly for as long as possible.
