To all the nay sayers out there

Change Oil reminder kicked in at 5300 miles of my current oil which happen to be the normal old non-synthetic oil. Per the owners manual, if the oil light comes on you have to change your oil within 500 miles. 500+5500= 6000 miles which is what the owners manual claim that our oil is good for anyway. HA!

Like I said, I've seen another 10 Liberty with the oil change light on at 2500 miles and a Dodge Durango with the oil change light on at 2000-3500 miles. The light is only based on how hard you push your engine. I'm sure that if I beat the living piss out of my car then my light would have came on much sooner then this. When I change my oil with synthetic AND drive the way I do now, I'm sure that at 6000 miles, I will not see the light.... although I will still change the oil at 6000 miles.

This^^ I have my wk set at 6000...I've changed my conventional oil at 6000miles, just recently changed to synthetic...I'll probably still keep it at 6000 miles tho, since I started doing it myself, and it not hard :thumbsup:

I'm really picky about my oil change I do it every 3K regardless

You can not change the interval with the newer systems.

Re: To all the nay sayers out there
 
I wonder if it really detects that the oil needs to be changed or it's just pre-set at 6K drive time?

In another 6000 miles I will let you know LOL

I'm also going to send this oil in for testing so see what the lab say about changing the oil at 6K
