How often should I change the oil in my car?

The normal recommendation is to change it every 3,000 miles or 3 months.  People who may only drive in town and not even 3,000 miles a year I recommend at least twice a year. Those who may put on 3,000 miles in a month could extend it to 5,000 miles but remember a oil change is cheap and a engine replacement is very expensive So your better off to stick with the normal recommendation.
