i have to disagree guys the oil we have now adays is made to take a beating so let it ride a lil longer. its a waste of money to change it before 3000 just fyi but you should be good for min 4000 miles on most oil. i go 3500 to 5000 based on things like did i go 3000 and have a big trip coming up or how bad did i beat on it
Well, im at 3500 now and its been on ice and snow and a 200 mile trip and today its gonna be making the trip back through all of that to VA Beach so by the time i get home it wont be long till 4000. figure ill change it when i get time in the coming days.
Full synthetic will hold up a bit longer as well. You can go 4000-5000 on synthethic as long as your motor doest run dirty. I like to go every 3500, but I am running syn blend. My old 2.3 could go 6000 miles, but it also burned a qt every 600 miles so it got changed on the go.lol Changing RP every 3000-3500 is just throwing money awat since it cost so damn much and could easily go 5000 miles under regular/moderate driving conditions.
