Changing Your Oil Every 3,000 Miles: Not Such a Good Idea

Checking and changing your oil always should be done when it's time, but it is possible for it to be overdone. Yes, changing your oil too much has no benefit to your vehicle and you might be changing it too much without even knowing it. How so? By following the old rule of changing every 3,000 miles.

3,000-Mile Rule Is Outdated

Yes, 3,000 miles no longer applies for oil changes in most newer vehicles. In fact, most vehicles now can perform just fine with oil changes every 7,500 miles. Stick to the manufacturer's recommendations because:

  1. Changing oil too often only helps pay mechanics and doesn't help you
  2. It is bad for the environment

Going by Our Dealership's Recommendations
