I change my oil every 5,000 miles. I am not sure how close I am to being due.

there are cars that you don't have to do an oil change until like every 12-15,000 miles or something ridiculous like that. most of them are considered luxury cars though like lexus but I know VW has some that are like that too.

Its not the cars, its the oil. Synthetic oil should last between 8 and 12k, maybe up to 15k, depending on driving habits, climate, temps, towing,,,,
New Mercedes, will tell you when its time to change the oil.

My last oil change was two weeks ago and turned into a fuel pump change and spark plugs changed (2x) and spark plug wires changed and being out of a truck for over a week. Yep...not looking forward to my next oil change. :?

There are videos, that show you how to change the oil, and filter, without disturbing anything else. :lol:
