Oil is vitally important to the operation of your vehicle, and if you want your engine to keep running, then it will need to have the proper amount of oil in it. There are three main functions that the oil in your engine performs. First, it prevents dirt and grime from building up and clogging up your engine. Secondly, it keeps the engine components well lubricated and working together smoothly. Finally, it works to dissipate the heat from inside your engine. Essentially, it’s what keeps your vehicle running.
Three thousand miles has been the conventional wisdom when it comes to getting an oil change for many, many years. But with the advent of modern synthetic oils, this is not necessarily the case anymore due to the many advances that have transpired in the past decade. The new conventional wisdom that has become standard to many mechanics is to get an oil change ever 5,000 – 7,500 miles, depending on your vehicle and manufacturer. How much you drive on a daily basis can also shift the mileage in which you need to change your oil.
