RE: Oil Change Frequency

Your'e right Marin but I'd be right if I said it would be good to change your oil every day too. I have a hard time changing a filter that is 3% full. At times I think it would be better to take off the old filter, drain out the old oil and fill w new but if I went to that much trouble I'd join your club and just put on a new filter. But it's so easy to just change the oil and not the filter and usually I do it more often*** .....as a result of this practice. Not trying to change you (that's hard to do) just trying to explain me.

******** I subscribe to the same thinking. I also change the fuel filters at the same time.

******** It's the very least I can do for my engine. :nod:

RE: Oil Change Frequency

Oil change frequency related engine failures are rare to say the least, therefore I think this thread has lost it's importance.

"Oil change frequency related engine failures are rare to say the least, "

Most failed engines I have seen were ignored to their death, not worked to death, or worn out.
