Frequently changing your oil is one of the easiest ways to keep your vehicle running at peak performance. Many of your engine's parts require proper lubrication to avoid damaging the engine itself. Over time, your oil can accumulate dust and dirt, or it may just run low, causing your engine to work harder than it needs to. Changing your oil and filter will help you and your engine avoid unnecessary stress.
When should you change your oil?
Obviously every car and driver is different, so pinpointing a single mileage is almost impossible. However, many technicians recommend that you change your oil every 3,000 miles. Although the oil still lubricates after this point, the critical additives that provide protection begin to deplete. Upgrading to a synthetic oil with certain driving conditions can allow you to extend the time between oil changes.
