Last updated 4 years ago

Motor oil is the lifeblood of a car’s engine, so it’s essential for drivers to use the proper engine oil and have it changed out every 3,500 to 6,000 miles. For more engine oil tips and to debunk the common engine oil myths, watch the following video from the engine oil experts at

One of the most common engine oil myths is that you need to get an engine oil change every 3,000 miles no matter what. Changing your car’s engine oil this frequently is probably not necessary, as long as your car is being driven under normal conditions. Check your car’s owner’s manual to see how often the manufacturer of your car recommends an oil change. Further, if you aren’t sure whether it’s safe to use synthetic oil or conventional oil, ask your local car repair shop or check your owner’s manual. Watch the video for more motor oil tips.
