Why change your oil every 3000 miles?
Prevention and early detection
We look at oil change inspections as a preventative measure, helping our customers detect vehicle problems before they cause a breakdown. Car problems are a lot like serious illnesses: the sooner you detect them, the better chance you have of extending your car’s lifespan. The cost of early-stage repairs is also significantly cheaper than fixing a car once it has broken down.
Taking charge of vehicle maintenance
It is important for everyone – particularly people who do not have detailed auto knowledge – to work with a trained professional to set up a regular maintenance schedule.
Engine oil degrades over time
As you drive, soot, oxides, heat, and blow-by gases can contaminate your engine oil, causing it to get dirty and degraded. Even oil that is left idle will oxidize and degrade as it comes in contact with air – meaning that you should change your oil at the recommended time even if it seems like you just had it changed. AB Auto Town recommends that you have your oil changed about every 3,000 miles.
