You likely already know that your car needs an oil change every 3,000 miles or so, but what do you do when the oil light comes on shortly after that oil change?

When you think of driving a car, you probably give no thought to planets, how planets move, or even how cars move for that matter.

The answer has everything to do with planetary gearshifts in your car's transmission.
