If Every 3,000 Miles is Too Often, When Should You Change Your Oil?

Thanks to advances in automotive engineering, the 3,000-mile oil change interval is now obsolete. But if changing your oil every 3,000 miles is overkill, how often should Greer drivers be changing their oil?
  • Check your owner's manual. This is the best way to find out your specific model's maintenance intervals. It may give two different recommendations depending on whether your driving habits are "normal" or "severe."
  • Check the oil manually. When in doubt, there's nothing more reliable than getting under the hood, and pulling out the dipstick. Rub a few drops between your fingers – if the oil looks or feels dirty, it is time to change it.
  • Contact Benson Chrysler Jeep Dodge. Our service technicians are experts on your vehicle's care, and will be happy to help you determine the best oil change interval for your model and driving habits.
Your car relies on clean engine oil to function properly and extend its life, but changing your oil more often than necessary is a costly mistake, and bad for the environment. Understanding the correct oil change interval for your vehicle is key to a better driving experience.
