The Truth About Oil Changes

Oil changes are very important to the life of your car. The question is, How often do I need to change the oil in my car? As a average we ask our customers to change oil every 3000 miles or 3 months. Some of the oils in some cars you can go up to 7500. Those are the ones with synthetic oils. Driving habits also have a lot to do with mileage intervals. If it is a lot of highway miles you can increase your intervals. If it is a lot of in town and idling times you should always stay around 3000. When getting your oil changed always ask for a good quality oil. Get a list of everything the shop checked. Feel free to talk about anything they found. Oil changes are not just oil changes, it is a time the shop can check everything else, tires, battery, brakes, wiper blades, light bulbs, belts, hoses, air filter, and many other things.
