Re: Oil Change Question
i've been splitting the difference between my old school (every 3k) and the new school (evic recommendations) and i have been changing the oil in the 6k - 8k range.
i know that, depending on climate, moisture gets into the crankcase and i know that some solvents from gasoline can get into the crankcase, so over time the oil gets contaminated. does it happen in such a small increment that 10k oil changes are ok? i don't know. gotta factor in a lot of things: climate, driving trends/habits, quality of oil used, owner neurosis and obsession, ...
like was said before, might be cheap therapy to change the oil a little more often, especially if you plan to keep the vehicle for a long time.
