How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

oil change
One of the easiest and most important services you can complete for your new or pre-owned Bentley is an oil change. Oil change frequency for a Bentley is every 10,000 miles or 12 months — whichever comes first. Many Bentley drivers don’t exceed 10,000 miles a year in their Bentley vehicles, so in most cases, oil changes are completed based on the amount of time that has passed since the last oil service, as opposed to the number of miles driven. In any case, it’s advisable to check your owner’s manual for exact figures before scheduling service.

What Are Some Tips for Oil Changes?

There’s more to completing an oil change than you may realize. Here are a few tips to keep in mind for future oil changes:

  • No matter what, oil breaks down over time and will lose its potency. Even if you let your Bentley sit for long periods at a time, the oil will break down if you wait too long between changes.
  • When you have your car’s oil changed, get an oil filter replacement as well. Our parts center has a wide selection of genuine OEM Bentley parts, which we use during every service.
  • Only synthetic oil is approved for your Bentley. Synthetic oil is more expensive but lasts longer and is recommended for high-performance vehicles, like the Bentley Bentayga Speed. Check your owner’s manual to find out which grade of oil your Bentley requires.

When Should I Check My Car’s Oil Level?

It’s a smart idea to check your car’s oil level at least once a month. When you drive a Bentley, older models must still be checked manually with a dipstick, but newer models are checked electronically. Simply check your dashboard every so often and watch the oil level gauge. Regular checks help ensure there are no leaks, which can be detrimental to the engine’s performance. If you notice anything unusual, schedule a service appointment as soon as possible to get an oil change at Bentley Pasadena.
