Changing Oil

When Should You Change Your Oil?

Most oil change places tell you that you should change your oil every 3 months or 3,000 miles, whichever comes first. This is the minimum point at which you should change your oil, and it's a good rule of thumb for many midrange or economy cars. However, many recent models, high-performance cars, or other special vehicles may have different requirements. Many of these vehicles are designed to work with premium oils and only require changing every 6 months, 9 months, or even every year. However, this doesn't mean that you can lengthen the time between oil changes by switching your oil! An engine that's designed to work with basic oil will still need an oil change regularly, and if you put basic oil into a better engine it may seize up or stop working. Make sure to read your owner's manual for the oil you need to put in your car and the oil change interval, and you'll have your car for years to come.
