Refuting the Myth of Oil Changes for Travel

A long road trip requires preparation, such as changing the motor oil before you leave, fact or fiction? Maybe you think it's true because someone knowledgeable about cars told you so, but the fact is that changing your engine oil before a long road trip is a myth.

Taking safety precautions before you being a long journey is wise, but changing the oil in your car may not make much difference. Just remember the word need. If you're due for a motor oil change before your trip or during it, change it about a week before you leave. On the other hand, if the next change isn't due for a while, wait until that time to have it done.
