Do You Know When to Get Your Oil Changed?

Think you’re a smart car owner by making sure the oil is changed every 3000 miles? Probably not. The popular belief about responsible auto-engine care is to have the oil changed every 3000 miles. The truth is cars and trucks that were manufactured within the last 20 years don’t need oil changes nearly as fast.

The best way to know for sure is to read the owner's manual that is specific your vehicle’s make and model. Many cars, trucks, and vans are built to need oil changes between 7,500 - 10,000 miles. Some engines require a variable oil change schedule, so don’t make assumptions without checking. Our trained auto technicians at DCH Kia of Temecula can advise you about proper engine care, and the best schedule for your automobile.

Don’t waste money because of old auto care traditions. The next time you’re in Temecula, CA, come by for an oil change and other routine maintenance needs!
