Oil Change Interval – 2

I get questions about this every week, so I’ll talk again about oil change intervals. If you are one of those of that is still changing their oil every 3k miles you are wasting money and resources. Advances in oils and engine technology has pushed that standard 3k mile interval to either 4 or 5 thousand miles. I recommend going 4k miles if you are using premium oil and 5k if you are using synthetic blend. (like most newer cars use) The real test is to try it for an interval or two and have your oil change guy check to see if it is too dirty or ok. If the oil looks too bad, then shorten the interval a little, if it still looks good, go a little farther. Everyone’s driving habits are a little different. Find out what works for you and go with it.
