    I've always been a believer in changing your oil every three thousand miles but lately I've started to stretch things. How often do you change your oil?

    I'm leaning more towards 5K miles as well. Hopefully I don't live to regret it.

    shouldn't hurt it unless it is burning a bit then just make sure you keep an eye on it and add what ever it needs .. would recommend changing it when ever you get a chance or can afored it cause its a lot safer and cheaper to just change it then replaceing the motor
