Service Intervals. Why Time is more important than distance

Service intervals are both distance and time based. Even if you haven’t clocked up enough kilometers to make the next service interval, the amount of time between services means items like oil and filters may be nearing the end of their performance life. Regular maintenance is critical for city vehicles, especially because driving in heavy traffic over short distances can cause sludging of engine oil. If your vehicle is left too long between services, sludgy oil will reduce the effectiveness of lubrication, cleaning and cooling of the engine, which is needed to maintain engine performance. So it’s important to at least have your oil and filter changed every 6 months.
