Re: THIS is why you do your first oil change early

The point is not to stress people over it the oil is doing its job. Its been proven by the manufactures. They didnt set the service intervals for no reason, even then they are set with a huge margin for error. Changing the oil any earlier than required isnt going to prevent a failure. If a metal has failed its going to fail regardless of the oil change.

This has been my experience with many different makes and many hundreds of thousands of miles. I have mostly used Mobil One and factory filters (always) with no problems.

Yep, I don't believe this myth. Owned 3 brand new vehicles and never changed oil filter.

Invest my time on catch cans better. Now there is something I do not want nor anyone for that matter.
