Modern Vehicles Can Do Away with the 3,000-Mile Oil Change

Motor oil has come a long way since the first formulas were developed. Now you don't have to get an oil change quite as often. It used to be that you needed to get your oil changed about every 3,000 miles. These days you can get away with getting an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles and still be good.

You should also check your oil often to not only make sure that it is topped up, but to check to see if it is nice and clear. If it is black or sludgy then it is time to get it changed. You want to look clear like your kitchen cooking oil. It should be transparent.

If you don't know when your car should have its oil changed, you can check in your owner's manual or come see us here at Riverland Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram and we will be able to help you out.
