Check Your Vehicle’s Manual Before Changing Your Oil At The 3000-Mile Mark

January 13th, 2018 by

You should refer to your vehicle’s manual for just about every maintenance task, sometimes even against the word of a mechanic. That applies to oil changes especially, because usually you’re told the oil must be changed every 3,000 miles, but with newer vehicles, that’s not usually what the owner’s manual says. Many newer models can go as far as 10,000 without an oil change.

Getting Your Oil Changed Too Many Times Isn’t Wise

Even though your vehicle manual may say to change oil every 10,000 miles or so, you might still wonder if changing it more frequently can be better. The answer is “no” because of the following:

1. Changing the oil more often than necessary is just giving the mechanic more money
2. It has a huge negative effect on the environment
