Oil changes are likely the most common reason that most of us go and see a mechanic. When it comes to providing the best care for your car, Milex Auto Service provides the highest quality of services in Tucson, so you can feel confident when you leave your car with us. When it comes to services like oil changes, we notice that people often come in much too early, or way too late. We get that it can be difficult to remember to get your oil changed – out of sight, out of mind – but your oil plays a huge factor in how well your car runs. That being said, our team of mechanics want to provide you with insight on when you should be taking your car to get an oil change.

You will always want to change your oil at regular, consistent intervals, but how do you know what is considered reasonable in this instance? The best answer depends on how often you’re driving your car and under what conditions. If for instance, you have a truck that you haul heavy loads on for large amounts of miles, changing your oil every 1,000 miles isn’t ridiculous. If you are driving long distances at a pretty frequent rate, but aren’t hauling anything, or you drive a steady and consistent amount, the standard is to get an oil change every 3,000 miles.

Getting your oil changed before it is too dirty for your car to utilize is incredibly important to how well your car works. Cars that get their oil changed on a frequent basis can see almost twice the amount of use out of their engines compared to cars that neglect to regularly change their oil. While it may seem a hassle or a costly route to take, it is much more affordable than the alternative of buying a new car sooner, rather than later.

If you don’t remember the last time you had an oil change, or you know that it’s about to be time for one, schedule your appointment with Milex Auto Service today!
