When it's time for a New Orleans oil change, consult the New Orleans auto care professionals you can trust at Twin Tire.
You want to take the kids to the Children's World's Fair today, but you're afraid you're going to have to miss it because you have so many weekend chores to do. Like getting an oil change. You've gone past that magic 3,000-mile mark to have it done and you're getting a bit worried that you're somehow destroying your engine.
It's time to calm down. Unless you're many thousands of miles over the "mileage marker" for changing your oil, you're likely okay. And, that 3,000-mile rule might not even apply to your car or truck. As consumerreports.org points out, "advances in engines and oil have made that guidance obsolete."
Consumer Reports goes on to point out that oil changes are not dictated just by mileage. A car that isn't driven much, for example, still needs its oil changed even though it might not have reached that "magic" mileage number.
"If you don’t drive your car a lot, your oil still needs to be kept fresh," Consumer Reports says. "Even if you drive fewer miles each year than your automaker suggests changing the oil ... you should still be getting that oil changed twice a year."
If mileage alone isn't the magic rule, then how often should you get your oil changed? Well, check your car's manual or check with a trusted New Orleans auto care and oil change technician like those at Twin Tire Auto Care.
