How Often Should I change my oil High Mileage?

As a technician it makes us confused why manufactures are starting to recommend more and more mileage in between oil changes.  A lot of things can happen in 10,000 miles. 


Oil changes are inexpensive compared to replacing an engine.  In these pictures you can see what happens when regular maintenance is not being done.  The Engine oil pickup is completely plugged with oil sludge.  Lack of service is the main cause.  A plugged oil pickup can severely cause a lack of oil flow to the engine, resulting in severe engine damage.  


Give us a call today to find out what we recommend for your vehicle.  There is a mileage difference between regular and synthetic oil changes.  It doesn't matter whether you drive a Honda or a Volkswagen as regular maintenance is very important.
