How Miles Should the oil be Changed? I been Hearing 3000 to 7 500 miles. Thanks for your Help


various manufacturers give various recommendations, anything upto 12 - 15,000 miles but a change every 5-6,000 miles will greatly contribute to engine longevity and smooth running. Less than this interval is unnecessary, there should not be sufficient deterioration of oil to warrant changing it. This is in reference to an average engine in everyday conditions.
I have a 2.2 Honda with 185000 miles on the odometer and it has had regular oil and filter changes around 6000 miles and it pulls very well still.
High performance engines , such as found in super cars or hyper cars might need oil changes far sooner becayse of the pounding it takes but unless you drive a Maserati, Lamborghini, Ferrari etc, you should be fine with the 6000 mile intervalc

Pt cruiser is using a quart of oil every 100 miles


Should be a leaking oil pressure switch.
First, check to oil filter, area to see if the oil is obviously coming out around the filter. Filter and area around it should be dry,.
There has been rare instance of the "o-ring" on the top of the oil filter sticking to the engine when the filter was changed, and the new oil filter then won't seal because there are now 2 gaskets between the filter and the engine block.
Check the engine drain plug. Is it loose or stripped? That area should also be clean and dry.
The valve cover gasket should be clean and dry all the way around.
Most common cause for that much oil use is the oil pressure switch, should be leaking with the motor running.

Hi, I just got my oil changed for my 2000 VW Beetle about a month ago, and my oil level is already by the add line.. is this normal? is there something wrong with my car?


Sounds like your burning oil or leaking oil, how many miles have you put on the car since you last got the oil changed? Check under your hood for any fresh oil leaks around your valve cover gasket, under you car around the oil pan, also make sure the service station that changed your oil tightened your oil filter and theres not a leak there, make sure your oil drain plug on your oil pan is not leaking or loose, if you cannot find any of the above your most likely burning oil due to worn piston rings or valve guide seals......

HAVE SMALL OIL LEAK FROM TOP OF ENGINE BLOCK DRIPPING DOWN BY SIDE BLACK VERTICAL COVER TO CAM BELT/ALTERNATOR DRIVE BELT. SOMETIMES DROPS ON EXHAUST AND SMELLS. HAD ROCKER COVER GASKET REPLACED 15 MONTHS...


is that a typo
should it be 1996 FIAT PUNTO 55S

degrease the engine with off the shelf products

if leak is confirmed from the top of motor

redo rocker cover seal with silicon
see if that slows the leak
cam seals may not have been replaced when you thought they were

grating noise at belt could be idler bearing

oil leak onto exhaust and smoking
real engine seal . sump

Oil light goes on...had a dry stick 4 1/2 qts put in. no oil on ground. after oil change light went on at 70 miles.. on 15 secs then off for 5 miles then on again 15 secs--- off 4 miles--off 3 miles- off 2...


if it's not going onto the ground, and it's not being burned, check the positive crankcase ventilation and the exhaust gas recirculation valves for oil seepage...also check your air filter, if its got oil on it replace the pcv valve.

2003cadillac deville uses to much oil


Regular Oil Changes with the recommended oil type for your car and area are a must or seals will get weak and oil will leak!

You may have a leak!

Do you change your oil regularly?

Even if you haven't put on the miles, you should change your oil every 3 to 6 months to keep the seals renewed.

If you haven't changed your oil on schedule, do so immediately!
Also check for any oil leaks around gaskets, filter, and oil plug.

Get back to me with answers to above so I can assist further.
