Oil change intervals have evolved over the years thanks to modern automotive technology. Older cars have become used to oil change intervals based on mileage, and have two maintenance schedules. One of those is for cars driven in "normal" operation and another for those used in "intense service” which means lots of short trips and stop and go driving.
Most newer cars are equipped with oil-life monitoring systems. They automatically determine when an oil change is needed and notify you with a “friendly” light on the instrument panel. By the way, whenever you have your vehicle's oil changed, ask the service technician to reset the oil-life monitoring system.
Changing your car’s oil on a regular interval is always important in keeping your car on the road for years to come. A.J.’s Import Garage certainly knows that, and our technicians can get you in and out of the shop in minutes with many other check-ups along the way.
