Fact or Fiction? The Truth About Oil Change Intervals

Over the years, you probably have heard a lot of purported "facts" about the correct time to change the oil. No matter if this advice was imparted to you by your mechanic or a relative, the truth is that modern vehicles are different from vehicles manufactured twenty years ago. What was true then may not be true today.

You may have heard that your oil needs changing every 3000 miles. This is a myth, as every vehicle needs to adhere to the schedule recommended by the manufacturer. Additionally, some vehicles today have motor oil monitors that will alert you when the oil is degraded. Another myth is the idea that if you use synthetic oil once, you will have to use it forever. The truth is that switching from synthetic to conventional oil will not harm the vehicle.
