Easy Steps to Change Your Oil
General steps for changing the oil and oil filter, done here on a 2008 Nissan Altima. Most vehicles use similar steps, but steps vary by vehicle. Reference a repair guide for more specific information. If you’re using conventional oil, changes are recommended every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Synthetic oil may allow for longer intervals between changes. Consult your owner’s manual, a repair guide, the oil jug, or talk to a store associate for more specific intervals for your vehicle.
