When Is It Time for Your Car to Get an Oil Change?

Older cars have slightly different rules when it comes to maintenance. When you purchased your first vehicle, you were probably advised to get an oil change even 3,000 miles. However, if you're in the market for a new car, there are some things you should know about oil changes.

For newer cars, you may be able to go about 5,000 miles before your car is in need of an oil change. There are even some models that only require an oil change every 7,500 miles. When you get the oil changed too often, you'll be spending unnecessary money and spending more time than you need to on car maintenance.

When you do take your car in for an oil change, make sure that you talk to your mechanic about the right oil for your vehicle make and model. You should also have your oil flushed when necessary to remove sludge and charcoal and improve the function of your car.
