How Often to Change Synthetic Oil

How often do you change synthetic oil? There’s a little bit of variance in how many miles you’ll go between synthetic oil changes and it’s always best to check your owner’s manual to be sure, but you’ll usually get between 7,500 and 15,000 miles between replacement. Let Hendrick Chevrolet Hoover walk you through how often to change synthetic oil and point you to our service page to make your Birmingham drive more efficient.

Synthetic vs. Conventional Oil

You might notice a difference in price in synthetic vs. conventional oil in Vestavia Hills, where the synthetic is more expensive. Is synthetic worth it? For many drivers, yes, because synthetic oil is a higher quality oil that’ll last longer in your car. If you’ve got a high performance vehicle in particular, you’ll want to go with synthetic.

How often do you change synthetic oil? First you’ll want to know whether synthetic or conventional is right for your car. Your owner’s manual is the key to this decision. When you schedule service with us at Hendrick Chevrolet Hoover, you can trust our experts to know exactly which oil and fluids come Chevrolet-recommended for your vehicle’s health and safety.

Why Go Synthetic?

Even if you are concerned about the higher cost of synthetic oil, your Bessemer driving experience can benefit greatly from using it. Why’s that? Here’s a list of advantages you get with synthetic oil:

  • A longer oil change interval is typical for drivers who use synthetic oil instead of conventional. In fact, you can get as much as 15,000 miles on the tank between changes if you use synthetic oil.
  • If you live in a climate that makes engine overheating more common, using synthetic oil means you can stand up to higher temperatures and keep your car’s engine protected from a disastrous malfunction.
  • If you are an off-roader, love putting the pedal to the metal on the track, or just have a desire for enhanced automotive performance, your car will drive better if it has synthetic motor oil lubricating the engine.
