Best Answer

If you mean how long to go in between oil changes, I think that even under the severest conditions every 2000 miles should be fine.

When do you change the oil?

I'm assuming you are talking about changing the oil in your car. The old mantra is, change it every 3000 miles. This is if you are driving under severe conditions and/or driving an older car. Severe driving is done by most people. It includes city driving, stopping and going a lot, accelerating quickly, etc. If your car is burning oil rather quickly, you'll need an oil change sooner, as well as some kind of repair work. If you are driving a newer car, 10 years or younger, and you aren't beating on it, you can push it to about 5,000 miles. Just remember though, that if you push it too far between oil changes, you risk the engine having more mechanical problems aka EXPENSIVE problems in the future.
