It depends on driving conditions and how well you take care of your car. Many people will recommend you change your oil every 3000 miles regardless of it's quality or driving conditions. Especially those who are charging you for the oil change.

This is simply not necessary with synthetic oils, however, which are designed to handle much more extreme conditions for much longer periods of time. Even under the most extreme conditions (i.e. Many short trips, stop and go city driving, and hot conditions with the AC on) Synthetic oil can very safely last 7500 miles. Under more normal driving conditions, it may last around 12000 miles.

Around 5,000 miles with conventional oil and 7,500 with synthetic.

Follow the manufacture of your vehicles recommendations. Or change the oil/filter every 7,500 miles.

Oil last forever but oil does get dirty. Synthetic oil like conventional oil does get dirty. You can extend your oil changes slightly if you synthetic oil but no more than two or 3000 miles.

That's easy synthetic oil. Ill tell you why it sounds better

if you drive normally, mostly highway, and not in dusty conditions then I would recommend you change it every 7,000 miles. If you drive mostly city then every 5,000 miles. I do not recommend you use a synthetic blend. Either use conventional oil or 100% synthetic. With 100% synthetic you can go 8,000 miles.

synthetic motor oil doesn't break down nearly as fast as conventional oil it also can have greater lubrication and anti rust protection.

5W30 ....and synthetic or conventional is fine, synthetic is higher cost but lasts much longer between changes so the long term cost about evens out

Oil changes are always necessary. If you mean can you mix conventional oil and synthetic, the answer is yes you can.

Yes...Some synthetic motor oils recommend 15,000 miles between oil changes. However they also recommend changing the oil filter at 7500 miles then adding more synthetic oil to replace the oil lost from changing the filter. In 7500 miles change filter,add oil, then drive another 7500 miles. Read the recommendation on the oil bottle.

The recommended oil type for a 2009 Nissan Murano is synthetic 5w-30 motor oil. The use of synthetic oil allows for longer periods between oil changes and smoother operation.

I have always used it on my BMW and have never had a problem.

Synthetic oil is a chemically made substitute made from petroleum components as opposed to non synthetic which is made from crude oil.

Change the oil & filter every 5,000 miles if you use conventional oil and every 7,500 if you use synthetic.

5W-30 try a synthetic blend since your car is newer ***Synthetic blend is not necessary in this engine, and the only benefit that you will see from the use of synthetic fluid is the ability to go longer in between oil changes. Due to the cost of synthetic oil, the existence of little or any benefit is arguable. Use, at the most, a synthetic-blended 5W-30 engine oil.

Mercedes recommends synthetic oils such as Moble-1. It is very important that you use synthetic oils since they have increased the interval between oil changes to once every 10,000 miles.

No, you can even mix synthetic with conventional oil. It will do no harm at all.

Under normal driving conditions you can easily go 7,000 miles between changes. If you drive mainly highway you can go 10,000 between changes. Also change the filter each time.

Most manufacturers and synthetic oil companies recommend 7500 maintenence intervals with synthetic oil. However, not all "synthetic" oils are true synthetics so be aware of what type/brand of oil you are using. In addition if you drive mostly highway with very little stop and go, city driving you can easily go 10,000 miles between changes.

Depends on what the manufacture of your vehicle recommends. Can be as little as 3,000 miles to as much as 10,000 miles. Follow the manufactures recommendation.

Every 3000 miles/5000 Kms or every 3 months. If driving in an especially dusty environment or idling the engine for especially long periods, then change oil more often. If using synthetic oil, longer periods between oil changes are acceptable (check with Dodge or synthetic oil manufacturer for those oil change schedules).

You can mix part synthetic oil with full synthetic oil.

Semi synthetic or synthetic blend is a combination of synthetic and conventional oil. Full synthetic oil is just that 100% synthetic oil.

Use synthetic oil and change it once every year or 5,000 miles whichever comes first.
