If you fall into the category of drivers who allow a windshield reminder sticker to dictate when they get an oil change, current competence recommends you drop that habit. Conversely, it is advised you follow the automobile maker's advised service intervals. For those driving modern cars, it is advised that you rely upon the car's oil life monitoring system to alert you when it is time for a change.

In the maintenance section of your owner's manual, there is an oil change information section customized for your vehicle. Commonly, the manual will list two service schedules, based on what they deem "normal" and "special" driving conditions. Decide which description best fits you and follow the advised schedule. If you are unable to locate your owner's manual, chances are you can find one online or even refer to Edmund's Maintenance Schedules, whose database includes makes as far back as 1980.

Every mechanic and dealership service crew may seem to have their own rationales for their recommendations. The most reliable way to determine the life of your vehicle is to obtain an oil analysis. This will spell out the conditions of your fluids, as well as unveil any issues your engine may be having. Once your results come back from the lab, you will receive recommendations on just how far you can go between service appointments.

Companies are now making extended-life oils available, guaranteed to last until the mileage notated on the bottles, with some as high as 15,000 miles. However, it should be noted that these are recommended for automobiles that are beyond their warranty limits. In fact, most manufacturers will deem your warranty void if you fail to adhere to their recommended service schedules.

There is no absolute answer to the question of how often a driver should obtain an oil change. Although the average suggestion is every three to five thousand miles, there are many factors that can affect that estimate. If you happen to schedule your maintenance too early, you are only aiding in the health of your engine. The older the lubrication is, the harder your engine has to work to perform properly. Thus, your car burns more fuel. So, going in early only equates to you saving on gas mileage.

Cars are like babies. If you take good care of them, they can make you very proud and happy. If you don't, they can make you otherwise. They can also get sick and like babies, when they get sick, they will require more of your attention, in addition to money to make them well. The best way to avoid being inconvenienced by your car is to provide for them but the big challenge for most car owners is the best ways to properly care for their car. Here are some maintenance tips.
