It has long been believed that the ideal number of miles in between oil changes should be 3,000. It is now believed that that number should be closer to 7,500 miles. That is because we now have really good synthetic oils that perform better and that will last longer between oil changes.
If you’re not sure when you should get your oil changed you can always refer to your owner’s manual or consult with one of our experts here at Price Ford of Turlock. You should also make it part of your pre-check to check the color of your oil to see whether or not it needs to be changed. If it is black and sludgy looking you should get it changed. It should nice and clear like vegetable oil.
Every car is different, and if you keep an eye on your oil, you will get to know when it needs a change. Stop in and learn more from our staff at 5200 N. Golden State Boulevard today!
