Should I Change My Oil If I Don't Drive That Often?

Basic maintenance on your car may sometimes seem time-consuming and as if it's an unnecessary expense, but these little tasks can add up to huge savings if they extend the life of your engine. Changing your oil is one such task you don't want to delay, even if you think you haven't been driving very many miles.

Motor oil is generally very stable and doesn't break down over time, but it is subjected to contamination just like everything else in your engine. Not only does it pick up microscopic metal burrs and road dust along its journey through your engine, but it also picks up damaging water vapor. If you don't drive your vehicle much, this water vapor can begin to corrode parts of your engine. Refreshing your oil every six months whether you've driven thousands of miles or not will help to allay any damage.
