If you are like myself, you have one of those oil change reminder labels that lets us know when we should expect to have our oil changed. Typical time is 3,000 miles. If you are like me, it seems that sometimes this time frame can go by very fast and as a result it could be 4 to 5,000 miles before we change our oil. Is this ok? It is important to understand the wear and tear on engines can have a direct effect on when to change your oil. For this reason, I tried locating a video to help me understand how I can better recognize how often I should have my oil changed.

Oil sludge is the issue.
Short trips and extreme conditions that put pressure on the engines can cause the water in the oil to not evaporate causing the sludge to build.
