Most people know that regular oil changes are important for the maintenance and well-being of their cars.
Perhaps you pay attention to the small sticker in the corner of your windscreen.
Or maybe you just change the oil every two months without giving it a second thought.
There are several factors to consider
According to experts, the time between oil changes actually depends on several factors.
First, it depends on your vehicle. What type of car do you drive? Check your owner’s manual for information on how often you should change your oil. Some models may need more frequent oil changes.
Then, think about your driving style. Do you typically drive on long, quiet country roads? Or do you mainly drive in city traffic, with frequent stops and subsequent accelerations? Or do you do a lot of short journeys? These conditions are likely to influence how often you should change your car’s oil.
The age of your car also plays a role. The older your car is, the more likely you are to need more frequent oil changes. Age tends to mean more wear and tear, and therefore, more frequent maintenance is required.
Whatever you do, don’t just guess when it’s time to change your oil. If you drive too long in a car that needs an oil change or other regular maintenance, you risk overheating, increased engine wear, corrosion, and oil leaks. It’s much easier to act in time than to deal with major car problems later.
Save yourself money, stress, and time by changing your oil more often.
