Motor Oil Misconceptions

Motor oil and routine changing are necessary to ensure that your engine works properly to give you years of service. However, along the course of owning a vehicle, you may receive information that is not accurate or true. Resist the urge to take all information as fact. When in doubt, talk to one of our Thompson Mazda service technicians who has the training and experience you need to get the right answers.

You may have been advised that your vehicle must have the oil changed at least every 3,000 miles or engine damage occurs. This advice is only partially true. The length of time between oil changes actually depends on the vehicle. Some newer models do not require servicing until after 7,000 miles. By checking your owner's manual, you will better understand the needs of your particular vehicle. See us at the Thompson Mazda garage for all of your oil changes or other service needs.
