Sorry for taking long to reply, but I had not re-read this thread in many days. So is a radar-based Pre-Collision System that can cinch the seat belts and prime the brakes for maximum response should it detect an imminent impact. What do I base this statement on given my support with the 3,000 mile oil change for numerous years? We'll make sure your car gets the right oil at the right price, because your wallet needs to be satisfied too. Amsoil makes filters that are supposed to be designed for 15k+. I suggest that if you do go 10,000 miles between oil changes that you make sure the oil filter you use is at least advertised as a long-life filter. I still maintain that it is the oil filter that should determine whether your synthetic oil can last 10,000 miles. Another opinion on oil is at the link below.
Owners were waiting 15,000 miles as touted by the manufacturer before oil changes, not realizing that there's no way that short trip-type drivers can wait that long, given the higher levels of moisture that accumulate in their engines. Motor oil lubricates and cools the internal parts of your engine. I doubt that synthetic oil degrades after 5000 miles. Personally, I wouldn't wait until 10K. It also helps to remove contaminants, and in some cases may condition seals to extend the life of the engine. As hard as I tried I could not get the plug to lock in so I held it in with the copper pipe until drained. The filter drain plug was a pain to use.
The latter model is covered separately in the Cars. Those people choose Firestone Complete Auto Care. Not a tremendous sum, and certainly less than a repair that might arise that could potentially be blamed on longer change intervals. Filtering fines is what it does. New Advancements in Oil Technology About ten years ago Lexus introduced their Oil Change Monitor. My Corvette has an oil life monitor which is much more sophisticated than a miles driven setup.
I plan to have analyses done on all three cars at their next changes. Hold a rag under end pull, holding a rag under the end, pull the dipstick out check, wipe the dipstick reinsert it fully, low level mark, add engine oil. These Pro Series oil filters provide outstanding filtration and engine protection throughout their service life. If you only use the car for highway, 10K might be acceptable. After installing an engine compartment cover, make sure that the cover is securely installed its original position, securely install the cover over the battery, the engine compartment when it rains or the vehicle is washed, resulting malfunction. My question is this -- is the 5,000 mile interval I am using ok and or could I go to 10,000 miles interval? Toyota changed the Prius to 10k intervals with synthetic.
What was Purolator thinking how to provide as little filter material as possible. Their high flow design can help to improve engine performance by reducing oil filter restriction. In back are frosted taillight effects. Now, if that filter can hold 70% more than the average filter, you may be pushing your luck if you think an average oil filter can last 10,000 miles. I believe the teeth on the sides is what really grabbed the filter to put on and take off. Chief among them is Lexus' Remote Touch system, which uses a knob to navigate menus with a mouselike cursor on the dashboard screen. Thats only for 2009+ vehicles with the 0W20 Synthetic from the factory.
Lexus information shows the Oil Change Monitor extends oil change intervals without having dangers towards the engine, saving you cash in Lexus oil changes. No matter whether your engine requires a synthetic motor oil blend, high mileage oil, or a basic synthetic, you can drive easy knowing that we'll always do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, climate, and mileage. Basically, Lexus told their clients to just stick to the dictates in the oil change monitor light on the dashboard to make a decision when to change the oil. There's nothing wrong with wearing a belt and suspenders 5k synthetic changes , but you might be wasting time and money. I seriously doubt the filter would ever become clogged unless you have major issues with the engine. I noticed that after 5K, the oil seems to degrade a lot faster, accumulates a lot more dirt and retains less of its viscosity. After my post nine days ago, I realized that the approx.
The filter drain plug was a pain to use. That kinda blew my mind. But for some, it couldn't matter more. I think the tolerances are too tight. As hard as I tried I could not get the plug to lock in so I held it in with the copper pipe until drained.
Whatever their motivations for doing that are meaningless, the reason they did it was because they wanted something on record they could use to get out of paying warranty claims. As an example, mild highway driving inside a warm climate will maximize the interval among oil modifications. Buy a nice purolator, Wix, or Mobil 1 instead. Like I said, I'm not questioning whether the car will be fine with 10k changes, I'm saying if you have a warranty failure. Don't forget the oil filter. Synthetic motor oil is a lot more costly than normal petroleum oil in the outset. How credible are the extended Lexus oil change interval suggestions? Based on the car, this might be in excess of 5,000 miles and as high as 10,000 miles in some Lexus models.
