When Is it Time for an Oil Change?

If you've had your vehicle for quite some time, you may be wondering if you're doing all you can to properly care for your car. Getting your oil changed every 3,000 miles or so has often been viewed as a rule of thumb for most vehicle owners. However, there are newer cars that don't have this requirement.

As a result of new technology and techniques used to manufacture cars, there are some models that only need an oil change every 5,000 miles. There are even some vehicle models that require an oil change every 7,500 miles. This means that you'll need to take your car to the mechanic much less often, which can save you time and money.

During your oil change, ask your mechanic about the variation of oil that is best for your vehicle. Even if you take your car in for another type of repair, it's best to have your oil tank topped off so that the internal parts will continue to function well.
