How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

Mechanic with clipboard

Routine oil changes are essential to your vehicle’s health. Thanks to improvements in oil and engine technologies, Minneapolis drivers can go longer in between oil changes. Most Jaguar models have an oil change frequency between 7,500 and 10,000 miles. It’s best to always refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for specific guidelines. Learn more about how often you should change our oil in this guide from the service team at Jaguar Richfield Certified Pre-Owned & Service. Then, give our service department a call when it’s time to schedule your next oil change.

Recommended Oil Change Frequency

How often should you change your oil? While some cars will have a higher oil change frequency than others, the general rule is to have your oil changed every 7,000 to 10,000 miles. If you drive around the St. Paul and Edina areas regularly and include any of the things below, you may need to have the oil changed more frequently.

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

Additional Oil Change & Auto Care Tips

We have additional auto care tips to consider:

  • Refer to your owner’s manual about whether you should use synthetic or conventional oil on your car. While synthetic oil costs more, it lasts longer.
  • Oil eventually breaks down, even if you’re not driving your vehicle regularly. An oil change should be done at least twice a year, even if you don’t drive that often.
  • Make sure you change your oil filter whenever you change your oil. Our parts center can help you find the right filter for your Jaguar vehicle.
  • Check your oil levels at least once a month to inspect for any potential issues like changes in the oil’s color and texture.
