Re: "Stop Changing Your Oil" Breaking the 3,000-Mile Habit

Wow 5-6K, my Tahoe would go 10K between telling me to change the oil if it went all the way to 0%

Jeep also has the computer based calculations on when the oil should be change. It is not just a count down.

I'm sure it would have been close to that number, but I just couldn't let the oil life get below 30%. (yes, am a bit retentive when it came to routine and preventative maintenance)

Don't think so. I'm guessing 7-8k depending on starts and driving style.

To be clear, the new Overlands really doesn't monitor or track when you should service the vehicle? I currently own an Acura & it forces me to service or I have to live with a warning that my vehicle is past service and\or the oil at 0%.

Re: "Stop Changing Your Oil" Breaking the 3,000-Mile Habit

My worry is not oil but filter, it could become clogged and then damage could be harmful. I am changing oil on any of my cars around 5K miles, if my car stays for long I am changing oil no matter how many miles I drove. Oil become bad by the time even without driving car.
Also oil burns even on modern cars, little bit but burning. Driving longer miles between oil changes required oil level checks and possible you would need to add some oil to keep min level requared.

I could've sworn that I read that number on some threads posted. Thanks for correcting!

Yes it does monitor the oil life. This is from the owners manual Page 268 (version 4)


Engine Oil Change Indicator System
Oil Change Due
Your vehicle is equipped with an engine oil change
indicator system. The “Oil Change Due” message will
flash in the EVIC display for approximately 10 seconds
after a single chime has sounded, to indicate the next
scheduled oil change interval. The engine oil change
indicator system is duty cycle based, which means the
engine oil change interval may fluctuate, dependent
upon your personal driving style.
Unless reset, this message will continue to display each
time you turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN
position. To turn off the message temporarily, press and
release the MENU button. To reset the oil change indicator
system (after performing the scheduled maintenance)
refer to the following procedure.
1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (Do not
start the engine).
2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times
within 10 seconds.
3. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK position.


NOTE:
If the indicator message illuminates when you
start the vehicle, the oil change indicator system did not
reset. If necessary, repeat this procedure.

Interesting, where do you think the oil filter is picking up so much trash? Your air filter is picking up more garbage everyday then your oil filter does, and the oil filter has more surface area.

Re: "Stop Changing Your Oil" Breaking the 3,000-Mile Habit

I change my oil every 4,000 miles religiously. That's only twice a year for me though....because I drive more than one car and don't put more than 7500 miles on any car in any given year.

Really? Typically, an engine's air filter has MUCH more surface area than its oil filter.
