Question: how often do I change the oil?

should I change it every 3000 miles or 5000 miles?

Owner's Manual will show you two categories of driving conditions.

I can think of product options that offer as much as 25,000 miles or 12 months whichever comes first. Using superior oil & air filters will be good companions for using superior synthetic engine lubricants. If you don't believe the label on the oil bottle, get an oil analysis.
