You're supposed to change your motor oil every 3,000 miles, right? Maybe. The 3,000 mile rule is part truth and part myth. Different makes and models have different specifications set by the manufacturer. Some recommendations are for oil changes at 7,000 miles or another range. So, how do you know when to change the oil? Many current vehicles have a motor oil life monitor to let you know. If your car doesn't or you're driving an older model, you might need to ask someone who can separate fact from fiction.
