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

Even if you just don't use your car very often, you'll still need to change your oil, adhering to your driver's manual's suggested schedule. Not only is changing your oil regularly a good idea, it can even keep you from voiding your warranty if your car is still covered by one.

You might think of your engine as a closed system, but it's just as susceptible to contamination as any other part of your car. Your motor oil not only picks up dirt along its journey through your engine, it also picks up water vapor. If your driving is mostly around town, you're not working up the kind of heat in your engine that will evaporate this water, leaving it to dilute your oil and corrode delicate engine parts. Stop and go driving is also particularly hard on your engine, making more frequent oil changes beneficial.
