Motor oil lubricates a car's engine. Choosing the right blend and viscosity level requires some effort, but the bid may be worth it. After all, you want to maximize engine performance while protecting the parts. Running on old oil does not help the cause. So, be sure to change the motor oil at the right interval. And the end date for the oil has both a mileage and time limit.

A car's owner's manual points out how many miles the oil can run through the engine. One make and model could suggest 5,000 miles is the max while another may recommend 7,500. Both mileage levels reflect a significant increase from the 3,000-mile suggestion of years past.

Be aware there may be an age limit, too. The manual could suggest an oil change after six months, regardless of how little you drove.
