Oil changes


#1

I have synthetic oil in my car which is 3 years old. I only traveled 1350 miles in the last 6 months when my oil was last changed. I checked the oil and it is a golden color. How often should I change the oil considering the car isn’t used very much. It is stop and start driving.

Once a year with synthetic should be fine.

If that’s all you drive every year…I’d reevaluate even owning a car.

Agree! If the oil stays golden like corn oil, it can’t be getting contaminated very much. A once a year oil change is suffucient if you have the right grade for summer and winter , such as 5W30. Agree that you could probably rent a car for those few occasions you use it and come out ahead.

You may also want to add stabilizer to your gas tank.

As to reconsidering ownership, guys…for all we know the car is a Maybach or Maseratti!

Then he should give it to me.

Thanks everyone! It’s not a Maybach or Maseratti!
