Just to follow up on this, it took IT just over 48 hours to respond and fix the situation  Smiley Indifferent  Might be a new record.

 

So what's the plans for the weekend PLYMCO?

Perfect place to ask this.  I was looking for that old mechanics thread...

 

I run full syntetic oil (Royal Purple).  I've heard that full synthetic is supposed to last way longer than conventional.  About 5,000 miles vs. 3,000 miles.  I know for a fact, that's technically not true lol... You don't really need to change oil that often unless your pushing the car really hard.

 

When I use conventional oil.  I change the oil and filter at the same time like everybody does.

 

But the question is about oil filters.  Weird question, I'm not sure how to ask it.  Don't all oil filters wear out at the same rate?  Even though my synthetic oil may still be good, wouldn't the oil filter wear out faster.  Should I be changing my oil filter again between oil changes?

I usually go about 6,000-10,000 miles between my Royal Purple oil changes.   I use the "oil is dirty on the dipstick" method.  Once it looks dirty/broken down I change it. 

 

You can definately go a lot longer on Synthetic.  My new Subaru, its a 2014, actually takes synthetic from the factory and they recommend 8,000 miles between changes.   

 

I have been known to change my filter and not my oil, learned that trick from my father.   We had a 1982 K5 Blazer with the 307 high compression motor in it, on day 1 my father drained the oil, put in mobil 1 and a new filter (this was in the 80's when mobil 1 was way better quality oil than moder mobil 1).   He NEVER changed the oil again for the next 250,000 miles, only filters every 2,000 miles or so.  I got the truck from him for $2,000 (hey my parents wanted to teach me to work and not put my hand out) and BEAT THE CRAP out of the motor for another 40k, following Dad's oil plan.   

 

I personally won't do that with my car now, but if the oil gets really dirty early on I'll do a filter only change.  Just don't forget to add a little oil back in to make up for what was in the filter!

Not exactly sure what to make of this post. So I'll just ask you if I should stop posting in your thread?
