Years ago, oil changes were performed every 5,000 miles, or at least every three months. This standard doesn’t always apply nowadays since oil quality has taken sharp improvements. As such, changing your car’s oil will depend on your personal driving preferences and what is documented in your cars owner’s manual.
If your vehicle is driven on brief trips, especially during freezing conditions, it may be time to consult a specialist. During short drives, the engine might not reach the optimal temperature to heat up the oil. This causes precipitate to form around the crankshaft.
