No Need to Change Your Oil Every 3000 Miles

One of the biggest myths out there is that you need to have your oil changed every 3000 miles. There is simply no reason for it because this also happens to be one of the biggest myths: a 3000-mile oil change is not necessary. This used to be a good guideline many years ago, but it's not true anymore for the more modern vehicles.

Oil is more advanced now, along with the technology behind an engine. Most vehicles are able to go for about 7,500 miles or even 10,000 miles between oil changes. Opinions still vary, but some chemists advise that you reference the owner's manual of your vehicle.

Oil gets dirtier over time as you don't change the oil. Changing oil more often is simply wasteful, and costs you a lot of money. That is why we at Sunnyvale Ford recommend that you only change your oil as often as the owner's manual recommends.
