Every how many miles do you get an oil change for your car ?
Is it true that with newer engines we can wait much longer than the recommended 3000 miles for an oil change?
I've read a couple of articles and heard a news item on the radio saying the current wisdom among experts is to change your oil every 5,000 miles rather than every 3,000 miles. While this may be true there are at least two things you need to consider. First is the type of driving you do. If you drive your vehicle under difficult conditions you may need to change your oil more frequently than every 5,000 miles.
Second and very important is that if you do not change your oil as per the manufacturer's recommendation you may void your warranty and set yourself up for a very large repair bill. It is safest to change your oil as recommended by the manufacturer.
It only needs to be changed every 5-6 thousand miles, in cooler climates it can last 8 or 9 thousand.
You shouldn't it go past 3000 or 3 months whichever comes first.

How often should you check your car oil?I do mine weekly but I have friends that do every month or two. I feel that is too long and a replacement engine is costly.
