It’s a question that has evolved over the years thanks to modern automotive technology. Older cars typically have oil change intervals based on mileage, and have two maintenance schedules, one for cars driven in "normal" operation and another for those used in "severe service.” That means lots of short trips and stop and go driving.
Most newer cars are equipped with something known as oil-life monitoring systems. They automatically determine when an oil change is needed and notify you with an alert on the instrument panel. Whenever you have your vehicle's oil changed, make sure that the service technician resets the oil-life monitoring system.
Changing your car’s oil on a regular interval is the first line of defense in keeping your car on the road for many years. The A-Team certainly knows that and the technicians at Able Auto Service can get you in and out of the shop in minutes with many other checks and balances along the way.
