Understanding When to Change Your Vehicle Oil

Many drivers erroneously believe that they do not need to change their vehicle's oil on a regular basis just because they do not drive it frequently. If you look closely at your vehicle owner's manual, you will notice that the oil change recommendation is also based on time.

Most manuals will give you a recommended mileage interval as well as a recommended time interval. For example, a manual might say to change the oil every 6,000 miles or every six months. When this is the case, you need to change the oil according to whatever interval comes first. If you are not driving your vehicle often, it is likely that you will follow the schedule that is based on the time interval.
