Are Oil Changes Necessary on a Regular Basis?

Although work, school and other family obligations require many people to drive their cars regularly, some people only drive their vehicles every now and again. For these low-mileage drivers, are regular oil changes really necessary? We hear this question frequently at Planet FIAT, and the answer is a definite yes.

Oil plays an important role in keeping your car’s engine lubricated and cool. It prevents small particles from scratching or damaging the engines. If the vehicle isn’t driven real often, there is a better chance of the engine becoming dry and contaminated. Therefore, oil should be changed at least every 5,000 miles. If you’re a low-mileage driver, set the oil changes for at least every 6 months.

We offer a full line of motor oil, filters and other automotive parts at our Miami shop. If you have questions or are in need of an oil change, pay us a visit and allow us to service your vehicle.
