Why Are Regular Oil Changes So Important?

Oil changes are recommended to be performed every 3,500 miles or every 3 months. If you rarely or never reach the 3,500 miles within the 3 months, don’t put off the oil change until you reach the number of miles—your vehicle actually needs the oil change more than other cars that are driven more often. Short trips heat and cool the engine in unequal intervals, creating more condensation that can lead to other problems down the road.

Get Oil Changed Can Catch Other Problems Early

Getting regular oil changes at River View Ford will also allow our technicians to examine the underside of your car and under the hood. If your vehicle is experiencing other problems, such as fluid leakage, frayed or worn belts, or unsafe tires, we can spot potential problem areas before they get exacerbated and worsen.
