Car Talk Service Advice: Oil Changes | Car Talk

Why is an oil change important?  Why should I get my oil changed?  There is some controversy over when exactly you should change your oil, but that depends on your specific car, and these factors

  • You drive like a knucklehead: jackrabbit starts, heavy acceleration or high-speed driving
  • You live where the climate is extremely hot or cold
  • You often drive on dirt roads
  • Your engine is old and burns oil
  • You frequently carry heavy loads (several mothers-in-law or other cargo) 🙂

Let’s see what the Car Talk guys have to say about this car maintenance necessity.
