Do You Really Need to Change Your Oil Every 3,000 Miles?

It really all depends on who you ask. It certainly does not hurt to be vigilant about changing your oil regularly. Having the oil changed at that rate certainly goes out of the way to ensure that the points and pistons are regularly fed with new oil. Over time, oil can break down, and when that happens, it causes harm to the inner workings of the motor which can be very disastrous.

These days though engines are so more advanced that one can go in some cases in upwards of 10,000 miles before they have to change the oil. Some folks go as far as to say that the 3,000 miles change advisory is one that is a marketing ploy for mechanics and quickie lube centers to get more business. The best thing to do is consult with the driver’s manual or do some online research to find out the best time to have the oil changed for a particular vehicle.
