Why You Should Change Your Oil Every 3,000 Miles?

“To change every 3,000 miles or not to change, that is the question”. The answer lies in the definitions of “normal” driving and “severe” driving.  The Automotive Association of America (AAA) defines these types of driving conditions as:

Normal Driving Conditions – Highway driving on paved roads in relatively dust free areas

Severe Driving Conditions – Trips less than 10 miles; stop and go city driving that requires frequent brake usage; extreme weather conditions; dusty roadways; towing a trailer; long periods of engine idling

An ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) survey showed that 90% of surveyed mechanics believe the best thing a driver can do to properly maintain their vehicle is to change their oil every 3,000 miles. As the average age of vehicles on the road continue to increase, so does the need for routine maintenance. Oil changes every 3,000 miles extend the life of your vehicle’s engine.
