Do you still change your oil every 3,000 miles or 3 months?
Many reports say newer cars do not need oil changes as often 3,000 miles or 3 months. How often do you change your oil?
The rule for Honda used to be every 3k miles for oil and 7500 for the filter, so you would change the oil filter every other oil change. Now with the newer cars, they have implemented an oil life meter which is about every 5k depending on driving habits, combined that with the new technology in engine oils and you can go much further between oil changes. I personally replace my oil when the meter say it's time, and I also change the filter at every oil change, spending an extra $5 is worth the piece of mind knowing my new oil is being filtered through a clean filter.
If you don't put a lot mileage on your vehicle each year, it's best to change your oil about every 6 mo just to remove the condensation that builds up in the engine from the short driving cycles.
