Oil Change Intervals: Why You Should Follow The Manufacturer's Recommendations

Q: My car sits in the garage most of the time. Does this mean that I don't have to change the oil as regularly?

A: The bottom line, you should always follow the car manufacturer's specifications for changing the oil on your automobile. Just because you don't drive your car doesn't mean you should neglect to change the oil, as most manufacturers recommend the oil be changed in time intervals as well as mileage. The oil will break down and decay over time, even if it just sits. If you care about your automobile you should always use high-quality oil, as well as always using the recommended oil type. If your vehicle takes 5W-40, that's what you need to put in.
