Why You Shouldn't Change Your Oil Every 3,000 Miles

There is one common car maintenance mistake that many drivers make, and you could be making it as well: getting your oil changed too frequently. You might think that you are doing the right thing by having your oil changed every 3,000 miles, but this is a common myth. Even though it might have been necessary with older cars, modern vehicles that are 20 years old or newer generally do not need to have their oil changed this often.

In fact, having your oil changed this often won't be beneficial for your car in any way, and it can actually be a bad thing. Even though oil changes aren't expensive, they can add up when you're paying for them too frequently. Plus, the wasted oil has to be disposed of, which can have an impact on the environment.

Here at DeLacy Ford, we can help you determine how frequently your car's oil should be changed. Then, we can help you schedule a maintenance appointment to have your car professionally maintained. Stop in and get started today!
