Vehicle maintenance tips: Regular oil changes are key

TAHOE/TRUCKEE - Changing your vehicle's oil and filter regularly is a simple way to increase your vehicle's performance, fuel economy and engine life.

Unfortunately, most of us drive in severe service conditions. This includes frequent short trips of less than 10 miles, stop-and-go city traffic and/or driving in dusty or extreme hot or cold conditions or at sustained highway speeds.

Whatever your driving conditions, frequent oil and filter changes are recommended. The reason - as an engine accumulates miles, engine oil breaks down, and accelerated wear can occur and all the engine problems come with it.

Remember when you change the oil, it is recommended you change the filter too. It's the engine's main line of defense against abrasion and premature wear.

It's an easy way to keep your vehicle's performance and avoid unnecessary costly breakdown.
