Although scheduling an oil change or doing it yourself sounds so simple, many drivers aren’t sure of the rules regarding oil changes mostly because of myths they’ve heard for years.

Your oil needs to be changed every 3,000 miles. – Check with the owner’s manual to see the recommended interval because every make and model is different.
Your oil should be changed before a trip. – Your oil should be changed at the recommended interval unless that would come up while you’re on the trip.
