How often should I have my car engine oil/filter be changed? For the proper car care or service / repair? Houston, TX
According to automotive-car experts, regularly scheduled oil/filter changes are the single most important item for prolonging auto-car engine life. Most new car auto vehicles have recommended oil/filter change intervals of 7,500 miles and some new auto vehicles have recommended oil change intervals of 11,000 to 15,000 miles under normal operating conditions, with ""normal"" operation described as the operation of the vehicle for at least 20 minutes at a medium speed, with a steady throttle and in a clean driving environment.
Short car hops to the store, stop-and-go rush hour driving, driving on dirt roads and inclement-weather operation are all considered severe operating conditions that can cause impurities to build up quickly in the automobile oil, resulting in increased wear and tear on the car internal parts. That is why most auto-car owner's manuals and auto mechanics recommend changing the car's oil and filter every three months or 3,000 miles (whichever comes first) to assure that maximum car engine lubrication occurs while a minimum of impurities are suspended in the automotive oil. To find out what the recommended car oil change frequency is for your car care, check your car owner's manual or talk with your automotive car service professional about your car proper car care.
