Oil Change: Double Check Before Visiting The Dealer

There have been many advances when it comes to your car and the way it runs. One of those changes is that you can go longer than 3000 miles before needing an oil change.

Cars parts have been upgraded in the last 20 years and require better quality oil to be used for them to run properly. Since the 3000-mile rule has been around for so long it may make you nervous to go against it. You can stay on top of this by first regularly checking your oil levels by using your dipstick.

Make sure to wipe and reinsert it before pulling it out and checking it. You can also check the color of the oil and if it is light brown then it is not in need of a change. A darker oil is a good indicator that it needs to be changed. After seeing signs that a change is needed, visit Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Billings to learn more about vehicle maintenance.
