How Often to Change Synthetic Oil?

Drivers in Puyallup believe in taking care of their vehicles, and that includes regular oil changes. Perhaps you’ve wondered how often to change synthetic oil. Typically, you can go about 7,500 to 15,000 miles between synthetic oil changes. Of course, it depends on the vehicle, the blend of oil you use, and your driving habits. Bill Korum's Puyallup Nissan is your oil changing headquarters. We’re here to answer all of your questions, such as, “How often Do You Change Synthetic Oil?”

What Type of Oil Should You Use?

Not all vehicles use synthetic oil. Check your owner’s manual to see what type is recommended for your vehicle. Still can’t figure it out? Call the service department at Bill Korum's Puyallup Nissan. We’re always happy to help.

Why Use Synthetic Oil?

Synthetic oil costs more, and that’s why some drivers avoid it. However, there are many benefits to using synthetic oil, such as:

  • Longer time between oil changes – Many vehicles that take synthetic oil can go as long as 15,000 miles between oil changes.
  • Better Performance – High-performance vehicles often use synthetic oil because of its longevity and greater performance.
  • Performs Better at High Temperatures – Synthetic oil withstands the heat of an engine for much longer than conventional oil.

Can You Mix Conventional and Synthetic Oils?

Tacoma drivers often ask us if synthetic and conventional oils can be mixed. They can be mixed but isn’t recommended. Mixing the two types of oil refutes synthetic oil’s high-performance properties. Bill Korum's Puyallup Nissan always recommends you use the oil suggested in your owner’s manual.

How Much Does a Synthetic Oil Change Cost?

Synthetic oil change costs can vary because of the car you drive, the brand of oil used, and your location. For pricing estimates in the Bonney Lake area, contact the service department at Bill Korum's Puyallup Nissan. Our experienced and friendly service team will answer all of your questions.
