Time To Change Your Engine Oil. Changing your car’s oil is essential. You need to do this to keep your car running as smoothly as possible. Changing your oil on time is going to save you a lot of money in the long run. Although there’s a lot of hubbub concerning the factors that contribute to when your engine gets old, it’s recommended that you change your oil and every 5000 miles (even though different owner manuals can recommend ranges between 3,000 and 10,000 miles. Factors that are at work here include the way you drive, how old the engine is, the condition of the engine, “the external environment you drive in, and stop-and-go versus highway driving — it’s an inexact science.” Do you drive like a maniac? Like a speed devil? Like a pro racer?. Do you live in extreme climate conditions?. Do you drive on dirt roads a lot?. Do you have an old engine that burns oil?. Do your carry heavy loads? If you do, you probably need to change your oil pretty often. If you don’t, the oil will break down and won’t lubricate as well, because of the constant high temperatures in your vehicle engine, resulting in its thermal breakdown. That’s why you should check your oil every few hundred miles. Check your oil! Or get your oil checked and changed!
