    I have a 05 DCSB 4.0 V6 and I change my oil every 3,000 miles with mobile 1 full synthetic. I've been told I could wait 5-7000 miles. How often do you change it and what do you use?

    I went 7500miles on Mobil-1 and Blackstone oil recommended for me to try 8500 after doing the analysis.

    Varies upon many things ultimately.

    I figure with my driving and upgrades, sooner is better for me.

    Ymmv literally..... I'd like to have a 300ish HP grocery getter last me a long time.

    Ya know what, so did my girls 99 Mitsubishi mirage.... Did a timing belt and a few other things, the damn thing looked like new. We change that oil every 3k with Dino 5w30 and a filter anything besides fram.
    At 170ish K, it looked spotless..... My buddy was impressed.... I'll see if we got pics.
