There's been a lot of talk around here between my friends on how often you should change your oil. I know it's diffrent from regular oil and synthetic but i've been told every 5000 miles for my car i use Royal Purple 10W30 with a K&N oil filter i change it every 3000 miles anyway how often you guys think i should change it?

i change mine every 3000 or so but 5000 milez wont hurt if your easy on your car...

i would still recommend 3000 miles for the price of a filter and oil

every 1500 or so. I get the stuff for pretty much damn free, and usually free at that, so copper plugs, oil and filter changes, and fuel filters go on a lot more often than most. gives me an excuse to work on the car too.

I will relax and back off when the oil looks brand new after 1500, then back it down to 2000, etc. until 3000.

we sell redline and royal purple, and I wouldn't use either. mine gets motorcraft 5w-30 and a motorcraft filter, I think the fancy oil change stuff is a bunch of bologna. if the car doesn't call for synthetic from the factory, it doesn't get it.

3000 is good but 5000 is when i change it. but if u run synthetic stuff, it wont break down as badly as regular motor oil. u can probably safely go over 5000 with seeing any damage...
i liek th royal purple... nothing but good things
