Experts advise car owners to perform a routine engine oil change after around 3,000 miles, but in between service intervals you may need to top up the engine oil to keep it at a safe level to ensure that the engine is well lubricated at all times. It's always recommended you keep an eye on your oil level to avoid engine damage.

Do viscosity and manufacturer specifications matter?

Every engine is designed around using a particular viscosity engine oil and a very precise specification. As engine oils heat up, they generally get thinner. Multigrade oil (i.e. 10W-40) ensures that the oil provides protection in both hot and cold temperatures.

Specifications vary in order to cope with the stresses that modern engines have to cope with. Specifications indicate the performance of the oil and if they conform to the latest tests. Vehicle manufacturers also provide OEM specifications for oil companies to conform to, such as M2C913-D and VW 502.00, to ensure the oil is appropriate for the engine.
