When Should Your Oil Be Changed?

Changing your car's oil is one of the most basic automotive services it will need throughout its life. However, if you've been adhering to the commonly given advice of having an oil change every 3,000 miles, then you may actually be costing yourself by changing your oil too often.

Looking through your vehicle's owners' manual is the fastest way to find a good estimate of how frequently your engine's oil will need to be changed. If you are not a fan of estimates, then getting under the hood of your vehicle and manually checking the oil is the best choice. If the oil is dirty, then it needs to be replaced. If it is not dirty, then you can wait a little while longer.
