Changing your oil represents one of the most basic care steps a vehicle owner takes. Do not make the mistake of bringing your car in for an oil change “whenever.” Timely changes are vital because you do not want to keep dirty oil in the engine for long. Once you’ve driven the 5,000 to 7,500 recommending miles, the engine needs new motor oil. And here is some news: change at the six-month point regardless of mileage.

What if you only drove 1,500 or so miles? If it’s been more than six months, the vehicle needs an oil change. Oil gets weak and dirty with age. So, low-mileage oil changes become advisable.

Put the best motor oil in the engine, too. Maybe you need high-viscosity or high-mileage selections. Choose the right one for your car or truck.
