When to Get an Oil Change
In your vehicle owner’s guide, the manufacturer lays out when you should be getting oil changes, as well as other essential services. While most people believe that you need to get an oil change every 3,000 miles, most vehicles can go longer (usually between 5000 and 7000 miles). Since all vehicles are different, the best way to know is to check the guide. Engine oil can burn off a bit between changes, so be sure to regularly check your levels!
How Motor Oil Keeps Your Car Healthy
Lots of finely tuned moving parts make an engine vulnerable damage by heat and foreign particles. Oil works to combat both: it lubricates parts, cutting down on friction and the amount of heat created; the filter shields the parts from particles like sand and dirt, and then carries those particles to the oil filter.
Over time, though, your filter becomes too clogged and the oil loses its effectiveness, so it needs to be replaced. If you go without a change, you’re increasing the risk of expensive engine repair.
