The Facts About Low-Mileage Oil Changes

It's a sad fact that some people just don't change the oil in their vehicles often enough. There are a lot of excuses. One excuse that some give is that they haven't driven enough miles to get their oil changed. You should get your oil changed even if you haven't driven very much.

Each vehicle has an oil change interval that is recommended by whoever made the car. These intervals will recommend that oil be changed every so many miles or every so many months. Even if you haven't met the mileage interval, you should get your oil changed if it is over the time interval.

Over time, oil is exposed to air, heat, and moisture. This causes the oil to lose its ability to lubricate and protect your vehicle's engine. Oil can break down even if the car is not driven very much, so that is why you still need to get the oil changed.
