Russians told four ways to determine when it’s time to change engine oil 09:08

There are four ways to determine when engine oil has reached the end of its life and needs to be replaced. In this respect reports “Behind the wheel”.

The first is to change the oil according to the schedule. The obligation to change the oil at least every year if the mileage is less than 15 thousand kilometers is included in the service book, but few people remember this. So, despite a mileage of only 2-3 thousand kilometers per year, oil is still aging.

You need to change engine oil every 10-15 thousand kilometers or according to mileage. But only if the operating conditions of the vehicle are close to ideal. In reality, the vehicle is used in difficult conditions. In this case, it is necessary to reduce the distance from replacement to oil change by half.

The third is to change the oil according to engine hours. This method is especially true for cars that have been sitting for a long time with their engines running. Owners install such devices on some cars themselves, while others calculate engine hours based on average speed and mileage.

The easiest way to know when it’s time to change the oil is to look at its condition. A sharp increase in waste is a sign that the oil has lost its properties. Additionally, the oil on the dipstick should not be completely black or smell burnt.

There was before that named Used cars you can’t buy. According to auto experts, “it is now important to pay attention to the condition of the car and consider options that are not worn, that is, original, with mileage, with a transparent ownership history, without any restrictions and without serious body damage.” They recommended abandoning taxi or ride-sharing options.
