I have been driving cars since I was 15 years old (59) years and usd
to do all my own oil changes until I got too old .
The big thing with oil and filters is to change the oil and filter
regularly and often, regardless of brand.
When I was a poor young lad I used reclaimed motor oil that had been
re-refined and the cheapest oil filter I could get.
Now that I can afford to pay someone to do my oil changes ? I take it
to a Toyota dealer and they change the oil for me for $20.00 Canadian
and change including the filter, but I supply the oil (Mobil1 5W30
yellow cap extended service , $27.00 and change at Walmart for 4-5
In all those years I have never, ever, had an oil related problem with
In my early years before synthetic oil I changed the oil+filter every
2400-3000 miles because MOST of my driving was severe service (city)
Now with the extended service Mobil1 Synthetic,(yellow cap) I change
it every 5000 miles .Yellow cap is GAURANTEED FOR 15,000 MILES BY
Since my driving is now about 50-50 NORMAL and severe service(highway
Like I say , I have never , ever ,had an oil related problem with any
of my cars over the years.
Most of my cars have gone well over 315,000 klms and then were given
to my kids ,and they still ran forever.
The secret is ;change your oil according to your driving conditions.
