When Do You Need To Change Your Oil?

The most important service you can perform to maintain your vehicle is an automotive oil change.Engine oil is the life blood of your vehicle, and if changed on a regular three thousand mile interval, it will keep your automobiles engine running for years. While oil keeps things lubricated, the oil filter keeps out the impurities, so the oil filter needs to be changed at every interval. If you plan to perform an oil change on your own, you will need the correctauto repair manual. Always consult your repair manual for proper oil quantity, oil weight, andthe proper oil filter when performing an automotive oil change.

Most automotive manufacturers will suggest that you do an automotive oil change between fivethousand and seventy five hundred miles, but I would only recommend that interval for syntheticoil. The maintenance schedules that they publish have two options, standard and extreme. Mostconsumers think that the standard schedule is fine no matter where you live, but 75% of the world lives in the extreme, hot,cold,city driving,etc! Extreame heat as well as extreame cold,will break down engine oil viscosity and cause it to loose its lubricating properties. So letsstick to an automotive oil change every three thousand miles.

I have over 25 years of automotive repair experience. I know quite alot about everything that has to do with your auto. I am ASE certified as well as GM certified. I am originally from Wisconsin, born and raised, lived there for 38 years. I've spent many years in the summer-humid/winter-icy/snowy climate and have dealt with not only repair conditions there but also how to drive properly in those conditions. Fuel economy is probably the most important element to saving money today, and how you drive or how your vehicle performs plays a big part in that. I now havelived in Phoenix for the past 6 years, in the middle of the desert where it reaches up to 115degrees on a summer day. I've seen it all as far as vehicle maintenance and care goes and can help with any problem by email or by visiting my website at http://www.your-auto-repair-help.com/automotive-oil-change.html
