Save Money and Oil without Unnecessary Changes

Who recommends changing your engine oil every 3,000 miles? Not the auto manufacturers. It's slick advertising by the quick-change oil companies. So how do you know how often to change your vehicle's oil? Check your owner's manual or speak with Auto Plaza Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. Oil change intervals depend on the manufacturer and engine type. The frequency of oil changes also depends on factors such as:

  • Weather - extreme heat or cold
  • Traffic - stop and go or long idling
  • Towing - regular heavy loads

New cars are equipped with sensors that monitor your engine's oil and tell you when it's time for a change. Advances in synthetic oils and engine materials also allow you to change your oil less. Lastly, changing your oil according to manufacturer guidelines will reduce the amount of used oil that needs to be recycled.
