Your vehicle’s health is the most important thing when driving around Leesville. As a result, routine oil changes are one of the most important things you can do to keep your car running at peak performance. In recent years, improvements in engine and oil tech have allowed DeRidder drivers to extend their oil change frequency more than ever before.

How often should you change your oil is an important question to ask. When it comes to newer Nissan vehicles, Benoit Nissan recommends an oil change frequency between 7,500 and 10,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual for more detailed information on oil change frequency and oil grade. Read on to learn more!



Recommended Oil Change Frequency

So, how often should you change your oil? Depending on the make and model, your car might have a higher oil change frequency than other Nissan models. In short, our general rule is to change it every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. When driving around DeRidder and beyond, you may have to adjust your oil change frequencies if you engage in any of the following activities:

  • Off-Roading
  • Commercial Use
  • Racing
  • Heavy Towing

Oil Change Frequency Information

Are you curious about some oil change tips? If so, we have a few below that might benefit your vehicle, courtesy of the service center staff at Benoit Nissan:

  • Check your Nissan owner’s manual to see whether you need conventional or synthetic oil in your vehicle. Syntheic oil costs more, but lasts longer.
  • Oil eventually breaks down, even if your vehicle isn’t driven consistently. If you don’t drive much around Jasper, you should at least change your oil twice per year.
  • Make sure you’re getting your oil filter changed when your oil is taken care of. Our on-site parts center will be able to assist you in getting the right oil filter for your Nissan vehicle.

How Often Should You Check Your Oil Level?

Make sure to check your oil at least once a month to avoid any potential problems when driving around DeQuincy. If you notice changes in your oil’s color and texture, it can be a sign of serious issues. If you find out you’re low on oil or need immediate auto service, Benoit Nissan is the place to visit.
