Want to know how many mile should i go get oil change ?I have 1450 mile now .
I just hit 3000 and have yet to see a light signaling to get it changed. How long should I wait?
With fully synthetic, I figured I would change at 5k regardless being the first change and then go from there with the light.No harm in changing the factory fill out early. Probably won't make a difference either way. Oil life monitors have been around for over a decade and have been doing a fine job.
Change it when it tells you to and you'll be fine.
Sounds like a solid plan! Just make sure that the brand you use holds the certification. Some brands like mobil, etc do not. There are a bunch that do, I believe any of the Pennzoil/Quakerstate/Shell brands are good. With a quality filter, it will last longer than you will care to keep it.With fully synthetic, I figured I would change at 5k regardless being the first change and then go from there with the light.
It says the interval is when the light goes off unless operating it under harsh conditions.I used to work on advertising for Pennzoil and have had many conversations with their chief engineer. Unless driven in extremely harsh conditions, modern motor oil formulations are good for over 5,000 miles. Even longer with synthetic. If you change sooner and more frequently, you are just throwing money away.
The owner's manual has no coverage on service intervals? I find that surprising.
