Time Doesn't Stop: Why Mileage Isn't the Only Determination of Oil Change Intervals

If there's one thing that's true in life, it's that time doesn't stop. This is true for the oil in your vehicle just as much as it is for anything else in Laurel, MD. That's why it's important that you change your oil regularly, even if your vehicle usually serves only as a paperweight.

Your vehicle's owner's manual should provide you with a guide as to when you need to change your oil. Recommendations will be based on both mileage and time, with the earliest-reached interval taking precedence. Since the same people that designed your car are the ones who wrote your owner's manual, it's a good idea to follow these recommendations. Regular oil changes ensure that the oil doesn't have a chance to turn into sludge, which can fail to protect your engine when you need it most.
