Changing Your Oil Every 3,000 Miles is No Longer Required

Be sure to check your air pressure. Make sure to always have jumper cables on hand. In the winter, keep a shovel in your trunk. Change your oil every 3,000 miles. These are all tips that you've probably been told over the years to keep in mind as a driver of a vehicle. One of these tips, however, is no longer relevant.

Today's vehicles don't require to have their oil changed every 3,000 miles like they did in the past thanks to advances in technology. If you're uncertain how often you should be changing the oil in your car, there are several different things that you can do. If your car is equipped with an oil monitor you should have an icon on your dashboard that will let you know when your oil change is due. The simplest way to find out when you need to change your oil though is to simply refer to your owner's manual or contact the professional staff here at Riverhead Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
