Engine oil is needed to keep your vehicle's engine clean and well lubricated no matter how infrequently it is driven. At Ditschman/Flemington Lincoln, we want you to change your low-mileage car's oil at an optimal interval. The following advice will help you decide when you need to change your engine oil.

Even if you limit your driving to fun Flemington, NJ weekends, engine oil breaks down over time. Therefore, you need fresh oil. Be sure to change it every six months.

When a vehicle isn't driven very often, oil breaks down faster than usual. This accelerated oil degradation is caused by the condensation that accumulates in the engine. When a car is driven more than 10 miles per day, more of the water in the engine evaporates, so less water is present in the engine to break down the oil.
