How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Routine oil changes are of critical importance to your Cadillac vehicle’s longevity. So, how often should you change your oil? Thankfully, improvements in engine and oil technologies over the past few years have reduced the amount of oil changes Georgetown drivers have to come in for per year. Many Cadillac models have an oil change frequency between 7,000 and 10,000 miles. However, it’s always best to check your owner’s manual for specifics for your model and make. Learn more about oil change frequency in this guide from the team in our Service Department.

Ideal Oil Change Frequency

If you’re not sure how often you should change your oil, a good rule of thumb is to change your oil every 7,500 – 10,000 miles. It’s important to keep in mind that if you’re doing any atypical types of driving in the Cedar Park region, such as the ones listed below, you’ll need to adjust your oil change frequencies accordingly: 

  • Off-roading
  • Commercial use
  • Racing
  • Heavy towing

Oil Change Frequency Tips

The experts in our Service Department have you covered with additional tips and advice on how often you should change your oil and why it’s important. Take a look at our useful information provided below:

  • Make sure you change your oil filter whenever you change your oil. Our Parts Center can assist you in getting the right oil filter for your Cadillac.
  • Oil eventually breaks down, even when the car isn’t driven on a consistent basis. If you don’t drive often, you should still change your oil at least twice per year.
  • Check your owner’s manual to see if you should use synthetic or conventional oil on your car. Synthetic oil costs more but lasts longer.
