Oil Change Frequency: When to Change Your Oil

Oil change in an engine


The oil in your Toyota model’s engine is essential to keeping your vehicle running at its best on Kennesaw roads. Therefore, routine oil changes are vital to your vehicle’s health. How often should you change your oil? Most new Toyota models will need an oil change every 7,500 or 10,000 miles, but some vehicles may need an oil change every 5,000 miles. Learn more about oil change frequency and the oil change services at Marietta Toyota below, or contact our team if you have any questions about your vehicle’s maintenance schedule.

How Often You Should Change Your Oil?

Many Atlanta drivers may be wondering how often they need to change their vehicle’s oil. Due to newer types of oil and advanced technology in your vehicle’s engine, most new Toyota models only need an oil change once a year, or every 7,500 – 10,000 miles. However, if you drive an older vehicle you may need to have your oil changed twice a year, or every 5,000 miles. Additionally, if you frequently take your vehicle off-roading, use it commercially, use it to race, or frequently perform heavy towing jobs, you will need to have your oil changed more often.

The best way to determine how often you should change your oil is to consult your owner’s manual or contact our service team and speak with one of our certified Toyota technicians.

More Oil Change Information

The best way to keep your vehicle running as it should on Smyrna roads is to check your oil often and have it changed in accordance with your vehicle maintenance schedule. Read our oil change tips below for more information on how to keep your Toyota running like-new for mile after mile:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 Toyota.

When Should You Check Your Oil Level?

You should check the oil levels in your vehicle once a month along with your other engine fluids and your tire pressure. This allows you to make sure you always have enough oil in your engine. Checking your vehicle’s oil once a month also allows you to inspect the oil for any contaminants or signs that the oil is breaking down and needs to be replaced.

Brake Service Special $229.95 per axle

Replace Disc Brake Pads and Re-Surface Rotors.

Brake pads are major parts of your vehicle’s braking system and keeping them in working condition is crucial for the safety of both you and other drivers around you. On average, brake pads should be replaced every 40,000 to 50,000 miles, but that number can differ depending on driving conditions and styles. The good news is, you’ll likely experience minor symptoms when your brake pads are getting towards their end of life, making diagnosis and repairs easy.

Here are 6 common signs it’s time to replace your brake pads.

  • Squeaking or Squealing Coming From Brakes.
  • Grinding Sound When Braking
  • Vibration When Braking
  • Taking Longer To Stop
  • Brake (or ABS) Indicator Light Comes On
  • Your Brake Pads Appear To Be Thin

Your brakes are one of the most important parts of your car-so why take chances on rebuilt or inferior brake products? Only Toyota genuine brake components are designed specifically for your car, and built to the same high standards as your original parts. From brake pads to calipers, rotors, drums and shoes, Toyota genuine brake components help provide maximum safety and durability.

  • Visual Inspection of front and rear brake pad wear
  • Visual Inspection of rotor wear

  • Installation of new brake pads or shoes
  • Resurfacing or replacement of brake rotors or drums

  • Replacement of brake lines, hoses, or other brake components

Factory brake pads on your Toyota are made to withstand friction and heat every time you drive. As with all parts that are under stress, brake pads will wear out over time. You might notice they aren’t gripping like they should or are noisy. If so, it’s time to replace them with genuine OEM Toyota brake pads. Cheap, imitation parts can be an expensive safety hazard, so don’t take chances.

OEM Toyota brake pads are made from the finest materials and will wear as long as the factory pads. Cheap materials break down faster. OEM Toyota brake pads are made to fit, so they will give you the grip you need when you press the brakes. When you buy your OEM Toyota brake parts from us, you get genuine Toyota parts that are made to meet factory standards!

Pollen Filter Special

Save $10.00 Off Installed Cabin or Pollen Filters

Toyota cabin air filters do a remarkable job of helping to remove undesirables like soot, dust and pollen out of the passenger compartment, and help with a more comfortable environment for you and your passengers. But if you’ve noticed reduced airflow from the heater vents, it may be time to replace your cabin air filter. Toyota cabin air filters are designed specifically for your vehicle and offer excellent filtering from the elements.

Most vehicle manufacturers recommend changing your Pollen Filter every two years, or 15,000 miles, whichever comes first. However, if you live in a highly polluted area or drive mostly in the city, this could be more frequently. With pollen season upon us, now is the time to get your cabin air filter changed – so that you’re prepared for our annual onslaught of yellow snow (aka pine tree pollen).
