Most manufactures recommend that you change your vehicle’s oil and oil filter every 3 months
or every 3,000 miles, whichever comes first. Consult your owner’s manual for the exact
specifications for your vehicle or ask us for a free Manufacturer’s Scheduled Maintenance Guide
for your vehicle. Some newer vehicles are programmed for up to 6,000 miles under “normal”
driving conditions. Your owner’s manual will describe “normal” and “severe” conditions relative
to your vehicle, but severe driving conditions include driving in stop-and- go traffic making
frequent short trips (less than 5 miles per trip), lengthy high-speed trips, driving in extreme
temperatures (over 90*F or below freezing), and towing and hauling. The average driver
probably considers his or her driving conditions normal, but the truth is that most of us drive
under severe conditions far more often that we realize and should time our oil changes
accordingly.
