Keeping on top of oil changes is necessary to keep your engine running well. You don't want your engine to suffer avoidable problems because old motor oil ran through the works. Still, you don't want to fall for old myths that could lead to spending more than is necessary, either.

Likely, the biggest myth centers on changing motor oil every 3,000 miles. How often you change the oil depends on the manufacturer's recommendation. Sure, some vehicles should undergo a change at the 3,000-mile mark. Others, however, are fine until 5,000 or 7,000 miles pass.

Don't buy into the notion that once you use synthetic oil, you're stuck doing so forever. That's not the case. Black motor oil doesn't automatically mean an oil change is past due. And changing the oil before a road trip isn't always necessary.

How about taking your car to i.g. Burton & Co. Inc. for oil changes and other services? The team at Milford can help with maintenance requests.
