Low-Mileage Vehicles Need Oil Changes Too

You're probably used to hearing people tell you that you need to get an oil change done after a certain number of miles. Usually, these figures are unrealistically high. They're often somewhere in the thousands if not the tens of thousands.

Since oil is needed to keep all the moving parts in an engine running smoothly, it doesn't matter how many miles you go. If there is any sort of debris in there, then it's not going to have the right viscosity needed to reach your engine's components. Low-mileage vehicles can start to suffer from engine oil problems not only due to these issues but also because of the weather.

On a cold start, only a small amount of oil is located in the upper chambers. Your engine needs to drag more oil in to run properly, which can't happen if the lubricant is gummed up for whatever reason. Oil changes are important because they keep your vehicle's powertrain free of contaminates, so get your next oil change done at Lithia Nissan of Medford in Medford, OR.
