Where can I get a oil change sticker for my car?

What does the oil sticker mean?

Should I change oil date or mileage?
It’s not just about miles: If you don’t drive your car a lot, your oil still needs to be kept fresh. Even if you drive fewer miles each year than your automaker suggests changing the oil (say, 6,000 miles, with suggested oil-change intervals at 7,500 miles), you should still be getting that oil changed twice a year.
What are the dangers of waiting longer to change your oil?
In fact, if you wait too long for an oil change, your smooth and clean oil will turn into dirty sludge. When this happens, your engine must work harder to fight through the buildup of muck. It loses its lubrication, and decreases heat absorption. This means that your car will be susceptible to major issues.
What happens if oil change is overdue?
Is 1000 miles over oil change bad?
Keep in mind, though, that most manufacturers recommend getting an oil change twice a year no matter how many miles you’ve driven. That’s right—even if you’ve only driven 1,000 miles since your last oil change, you still need to get an oil change every six months.
How long does oil last in a car?
Car makers recommend different oil change intervals for different cars; typically between 5,000 and 7,500 miles or between 4 and 6 months, whichever comes first for normal driving conditions.
What happens if you don’t change your oil?
When oil has not been changed for a long time, it will begin to gel or solidify in an engine, eventually turning into sludge. When this happens, the oil will not be able to reach all parts of the engine, leading to oil starvation in the crankshafts, bearings, camshafts, and other valve train components.
