Low-mileage oil changes might seem quizzical. If you drive a pickup truck with a powerful engine that doesn’t require an oil change until the 10,000-mile mark, why would you get the oil changed at the 1000-point? The reason is the oil aged. And it doesn’t age well.

Six months is usually the recommended maximum for motor oil in an engine. Once the age hits the six months, then it’s time for a change. Even if you don’t drive the vehicle much, the oil will break down. As it breaks down, expect the oil to lose viscosity and lubrication. That means the fluid won’t be doing its job in your car.

When getting an oil change in Cheshire, MA, try to purchase the best oil for your vehicle. Maybe it is time for high-mileage oil or a synthetic blend.
