This really depends on several factors. 1. What are the conditions that the car is being driven in? If it is extreamly hot or dusty or if it is mainly stop and go short trip driving then the oin needs to be changed more often than if the conditions are less severe. 2. What kind of oil are you using? If you are using a regular petroleum based oil then it won't last as long as if you were using a synthetic or a synthetic blend oil. So if you are driving under harsh conditions, mostly stop and go short trips change it most frequently, 3000km sounds better than longer. If you are driving in less harsh conditions, mainly longer trips 30 minutes or more at a continuous speed over 70kph and you are using a synthetic oil you could go as long as 12000km before changing it. You also need to keep track of how much oil your car is using, if it seems to burn a lot (more than 1 quart every month) then you have a more worn motor and you need to keep checking the oil so you don't burn the motor up from lack of oil. Also every new quart you put in is changing 1/5th of the oil in your motor. Remember oil is meant to help protect your car's motor, use the best you can afford and change it as often as you need to, based on the conditions of your driving, and your car's engine will last as long as possible. Respectfully, Charlie (p.s. I hope this helped, it is not an easy black or white question, use your own common sense to arrive at the best answer for you and your car.)
