Vehicle Oil Life Monitors
Posted by M1SCRM at December 12th, 2016
We do not recommend using the oil life monitor; as we feel it is to long and allows too much for oil breakdown. We have replaced several motors due to customers going by the oil life and they have put on 10 thousand or more miles since the last oil change.
We believe oil and filter change should be every 3000 to 4000 miles.If the vehicle has a lot of short trips, then we recommend 3000 miles for sure! If full synthetic oil is run, intervals can be anywhere from 5000 to 6000, but the best filter should be applied. Short trips with full synthetic should still be done around the 4000 mile range.
Automobile manufactures recommend longer oil change intervals because they are selling newer vehicles. We try to keep your original investment running at optimum performance for as long as possible. In the long time frame, oil is by far a cheaper investment than a new motor.
