The Oil Change Myth

Changing an old habit can take time but this one will save you time and money. Having your car in tip-top condition is essential to comfortable and safe driving. Little things like keeping your fluids at the appropriate levels and having clean oil flowing through your engine can make a big difference in how your car functions. In past years, we were advised to change the oil about every 3,000 miles. Well, times have changed, our vehicles have improved as well as the oil.

The new rule of thumb has upgraded to every 7,500 miles for an oil change. The best action you can take is to read your owner's manual and go by what the manufacturer suggests. The other action you can take is to check for yourself by pulling out the oil dipstick and rubbing a small amount between your fingers. If the oil is gritty, it is time for a change. When in doubt, call Helena Ford Lincoln and we will help.
