How many months should my 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe go between oil changes?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Bill, Oil is changed by mileage not time, hope this helps.

Barb Petrey, President - DBK Enterprises Inc at Jiffy Lube Check your owners manual for your type of driving.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at 3-5 months/3-5k miles for conventional oil, or 5-7 months/5-7k miles for synthetic oil.

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive Your vehicle is equipped with an oil life monitoring system that will tell you when the oil needs to be changed. This system will take into account your normal driving patterns. However, it is important to check your oil level regularly (at least once a month) as the engine will burn some oil over time and a warning light may not illuminate if the level is too low.
