read your owner's manual.
If you don't have a lot of miles or kilometers on the vehicle, ask your
mechanic when you should bring it back for an oil change. With just
short trips, water builds up in the oil. That's not good and you need
more frequent oil changes.
We had a guy who worked for our company around the time of the no tune up
ads for 100 000 miles by the major manufacturers who ran his car for 35 000
miles till the engine seized. He thought due to the marvel of modern
technology he could run his car till 100 000 miles without an oil change.
Supposedly when they remove the valve covers the inside was like charcoal
Please don't do a Mike and top post. That makes it hard to follow threads.
Anyway, he was right. He didn't need to change his oil until 100,000 mi.
There was just the problem of the 35,000 rebuild and the 70,000 mi
rebuild. I would doubt that my engine would seize after 35,000 with no
oil change (assuming that I made sure the oil didn't run out, which may
have happened), but I am not going to find out.
There are some trucks that don't need oil changes. New oil is slowly
pumped in and the old oil is pumped out into the fuel tank, like 1 liter
every 1500 km or so. But this is only for big rigs.
it also makes it easier to follow a conversation when one replies to
specific parts of a previous person's post.
Inline posting is considered proper netiquette.
I read the link and some of the links in that link and I dont see a clear
winner, I see the point but it must depend on your news reader. Because I
cant simply click on the most latest post and see every comment made,
someone may have deleted other comments from their post and there would be a
chuck missing in the middle. For myself using OE, I just click on each post
and say everyone top posted then I would see each persons post immediately.
If they bottom posted I just have to scroll all the way to the bottom.
I believe just about every news reader lets you see individual posts in
Yet that chunk would not be important for the post the person made.
Yet, when one does in-line posting, it is much more like a regular
Besides, there are better newsreaders. And ones that don't have as many
security flaws. At least you're not using Windows Vista.
I didn't say bottom post. I said inline post, which is different.
