Throw Away That Old 3,000 Mile Oil Change Rule

For quite some time many of us vehicle owners have been regularly changing out our engine's oil every 3,000 miles or so, but in recent years, the automobile manufacturers themselves have been recommending changes at 7,500 miles or more for their vehicles.

One of the biggest impacts on when you need to change your oil is the way in which you operate your vehicle. If you send a lot of time in stop and go traffic, driving in extremely hot or cold weather or make frequent short distance trips that don't allow your engine to properly heat up can all have a negative impact on engine oil life.

It is always smart to consult your owner's manual or a dealership to find out exactly what type of oil your vehicle's engine is designed to operate with as well as how frequently it should be changed based on your driving habits.

Make sure your vehicle gets the quality service it deserves, bring it in to Tim Short Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT today.
