How Often Do Kansas City Drivers Need to Have Their Oil Changed?

Christian Brothers Automotive gets asked all the time about how frequently a driver should get an oil change in North Kansas City. Changing the oil in your car on a regular basis is one of the most basic services a vehicle needs to perform well. The frequency of needing an oil change depends on the make of the vehicle.

Read the car’s manual to find out the manufacturers suggested mileage between oil changes. Car manufacturers conduct extensive tests to determine how well oil performs under different conditions. After tests are complete, the manufacturer develops a guideline for regular maintenance.

At Christian Brothers Automotive, we suggest that North Kansas City drivers schedule an oil change every 3,000 miles (no matter the make of the vehicle).
