Is 3,000 The Magic Number For Changing Your Oil?

Make no mistake, you don't want to neglect to change your oil because your engine will eventually experience problems and break down. But you might be surprised to hear that you've changed it too much. You probably were told at one time that you should always change your oil once every 3,000 miles and on older vehicles and older engine oil that usually was correct. But most newer models do not require that.

Many vehicles these days don't need their oil changed every three thousand miles. With better products and more efficient engines, many vehicles can go about 7,000 miles before needing an oil change. And there are some benefits of not needing your oil changed as frequently. Like...

  • You'll save more money and protect the environment better
  • Changing your oil more often than necessary actually doesn't lengthen your vehicle's lifespan
  • Most oil change companies still give you the 3,000 miles sticker because they'll be paid more often
