Motor oil keeps your engine clean, lubricated and healthy. The more you drive, the more frequently you need to change your oil, according to our Bowman Commercial service department. What if you don't drive that often? You still need oil changes, just not as frequently.

When You Don't Drive That Often

Regardless of how often you drive, your car engine stills needs an oil change every 3,000 to 7,500 miles. If you're driving a model that's more than 10 years old, consider oil changes at 3,000-mile intervals. Oil change intervals of 5,000 to 7,500 are best for vehicles manufactured within the past 10 years.

When You Use Conventional or Synthetic Oil

Conventional and synthetic are the two main types of motor oil. The former comes from crude oil and should be changed every 3,000 miles. The latter consists of a chemical mixture optimized to filter, lubricate and improve engine efficiency. Synthetic oils can be changed between 5,000 and 7,500 miles.

Whenever you're due for an oil change, be sure to stop by the service department at our Clarkston dealership. We look forward to meeting you.
