oil change

Just curious, how often do you guys change your oil, i heard from many people that you dont have to do it every 3k cause it being synthetic. Any opinions?

Wait till your car tells you too.

Your car has a built in amount of revs it stores and once you use all those revs it will tell you to change your oil. If you do it any more than that your just doing it to do it.

I go once every three months or 3000 miles

Dirt still builds up in oil, synthetic or not.

I change mine more often than you use the search function. Here's yet another thread that will be beaten into the ground.

In theory, it should be building up in the filter, not the oil.

I have to change mine about three times a year. About every 5,000 miles or so.
