It depends on your driving conditions, and the stresses put on the engine.

A good rule of thumb for synthetic oil change is 6000 mile intervals

SOURCE: How hard is it to replace the oil pan in an '04 Acura TL?

As to how hard it is to replace that depends. If you can remove the oil pan without removing any other parts then it is a simple repair. But if you must remove other parts in order to remove the pan it can be more difficult. Crawl under the car and see what must be removed in order to get the pan off. If you can buy a new oil pan for $95 then by all means buy it and replace it yourself or hire a trusted mechanic to do it for you. I can assure you it will not cost $300. At least find out what it will cost if done by someone other than the dealer. Honda's are reliable cars but their oil pan drain plugs are not. The problem is Honda uses an aluminum drain plug washer and this requires you to torque it to 29 ft/lbs in order for it to seal properly. Over time this will cause the pan threads, which are weak, to distort and eventually end up stripping out. The solution when you install your new oil pan is to not use an aluminum washer and instead use a fiber washer. If you pay someone else to change your oil, be sure and tell them to leave the fiber washer in place and not to install an aluminum washer. You then torque it to 15 ft/lbs and never have a leak or stripped threads. Another alternative is to just replace the drain plug with an inexpensive rubber drain plug you can purchase at any auto parts store. It will seal the drain and you just throw it away and install a new one at every oil change.

Oil pan gasket replacement

It shouldn't be hard on that car as the oil pan is exposed. Unplug the oil plug and drain the oil. Then unbolt the oil pan, clean off the old gasket and replace. Make sure you scrape both the pan and the block clean thoroughly and then bolt back up. Don't forgot to replug the drain plug.
