Low-Mileage Oil Changes Explained

Taking care of your car requires putting time and effort into maintenance. Keep tabs on your mileage. Once you hit the 5,000-point after your previous oil change, you need a new one. Don't assume this is the only time you must change the oil. There is a clock ticking.

Engine oil slowly degrades. When you drive a car, the oil becomes dirty due to use. If you put 5,000 miles on the oil within 90 days, the oil needs a change. Don't assume that not putting very many miles on the oil pushes back the change day. The oil wears down as the days pass.

Once six months go by, take the car in for an oil change. You don't want dirty, degraded oil running through the engine. Old oil isn't up for the job.
