Are You Changing Your Oil at The Proper Mileage Intervals?

How often do you change your oil? If you said every 3,000 miles, then you could be overdoing it. Granted, that is still appropriate for older vehicles and an oil change every 3,000 miles was the general rule for a long time. But as modernizations have occurred both with auto engines and automotive engine oil, auto manufacturers have started to redefine the length of time that they recommend for that regular service.

Newer vehicles can now normally go anywhere between 5,000 miles and 7,500 miles in between oil changes. This will surely depend on the model and mileage of your vehicle as well as the type of oil that you generally use, but by finding out what your auto manufacturer recommends for your vehicle, you can potentially save quite a bit of money.

If you are not sure about how to find out what the recommendation is for your car, truck, or SUV you can check your owner's manual or ask one of our service experts here at Lion Country Kia in State College, PA.
