3K is when I say will change the oil, usually by time I get to actually changing my oil about 3500 miles have passed though.

I got a Computerized message via Azteknology yesterday that I need another oil change. I am still going off the computer's judgement, this will be change #2... I have around 35K-ish miles (going off memory).

I started using 5W30 Synthetic when we had to replace the engine, wholesale.  I use either Quaker State or Mobil 1.  I am tempted to try the Amsoil, but I do not think that I can justify that cost to the money maker right now (my wife works full time while I get my Master's degree).  I convinced her on the Synthetic, so I stay thankful for that one.  I usually let it go 4K, even though I can let it go to 5K without breaking a sweat.  So far, I have put about 15-18K miles on the new engine since summer of 07, so I am happy so far.
I suggest synthetic to anyone...quieter running engine, better mileage...thsoe two reasons alone are good enough for me.

I run synthetic.  So I wait for the oil light.  When I was using dino oil I would do the 3000 mi change.

Holy old thread batman!

Anyways, in the 34.5k I've put on mine in almost 2 years, I've only seen the message once. I don't know how many times I've changed it...probably 6 or 7, but I generally change it around 5-7k. Use only Valvoline High Milage and a quart of Lucas each time. Ever since I had my LIM replaced and got it back with a stuck lifter, I changed the oil and put a quart of lucas in first. It unstuck that lifter in no time and won a special place in my heart. I swear by that stuff.

That is a pretty slick idea...what is the benefit of using lucas over another synthetic?

Lucas is basically just some thick patroleum. I just like to have some in my system at all times with some thin oil so the oil keeps stuff lubed but the lucas keeps it in tip-top shape. That's my reason and I'm stickin to it lol. Now scientific evidicence...that's beyond me.
