Do I Need To Change My Oil Every 3,000 Miles?

From the time we get our first vehicles we are told that we need to change the oil every 3000 miles. What if we told you that isn't necessarily the case these days?

The 3000-mile oil change standard has become a thing of the past. Back 15-20 years ago it was a necessity for many reasons. Cars were nowhere near as clean or efficient as they are today, which in turn made the oil get dirty and break down quicker. Modern oils are also much more advanced than they used to be, especially with the rise of synthetic oils.

If not 3000 miles then when? Some vehicles may be 7000 miles and others can be as long as 10000 miles. The best is to consult the owner's manual in your vehicle. The best option is to visit the service center here at Walt Massey Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. Our technicians are ready to assist you with all your vehicle maintenance needs.
