Have you scheduled a time to change the oil in your car? Oil contributes to better fuel economy and engine performance. Of course, oil also ensures engine parts remain lubricated. The fluid does get dirty from use, which is why a change becomes necessary at the recommended point.

Manufacturers do suggest a maximum mileage to drive before it becomes time to change the oil. 5,000 to 7,500 appear to be the standard recommendations. Those figures represent a significant increase over the 3,000 miles once suggested. While it is vital to change oil at the necessary mileage point, do not overlook the time limitation.

Oil degrades as time wears on, so old oil won't help the engine much. Often, six months is the maximum length. Check your owner's manual for a specific duration recommendation for your make and model.
