Q: How often should I change my oil ?
A: Most cars ever 3 months or 3000 miles, whichever comes first. But there are some exceptions. If you drive less than 3000 in a year twice a year is fine, and if you drive more than 20,000 mile in a year every 5000 miles is fine. Also if you use synthetic oil 6 months or 6000 miles becomes the rule. Manufactures intervals may be longer but remember, thru our experience we recommend these intervals to keep you car running as long as you own it.
