Finding the Right Oil Change Interval

The common oil change interval used to be every 3,000 miles. However, improvements in automotive engineering have made this interval rather obsolete. Changing your car's oil every 3,000 miles is actually overkilled, but how often is appropriate?


If you are looking for a good recommendation that takes your car and driving habits into account, then be sure to consult your vehicle's owner's manual. If you aren't interested in guesswork or estimates, then the best way to figure out when to change your oil is to just check it manually. This will allow you to always know when it needs to be replaced.

Although your vehicle obviously relies on having clean oil in its engine for peak performance, changing it more often than you need to could end up costing you extra money. Speak to our expert service technicians at Pogue Chrysler in Powderly, KY if you have any questions regarding oil change intervals.
