Generally, it is recommended by most manufacturers to change your oil and filter every 3000 miles if you are using mineral based oils like Castrol GTX, Valvoline, Quaker State. One the other hand if you are using full synthetic oils for your oil changes, then you can extend the mileage to every 7000 miles however be prepared to pay a little more for the high quality of the oil. We at Rapid Repair Auto Center have all the different types of oil however by far the best value is our KENDALL GT-1 SYNTHETIC-BLEND motor oil which is made by ConocoPhillips.
