poo stainYeah that poo stain rag tells alot. Jk jk change the oil in it. Imo 5k is too long even for a synthetic. I dont buy into all that bs 7k a oil change synthetic nonsense.
I'll check it later since it's raining right nowColour is not a way to determine the quality of your oil. What I do is pull the stick and rub the oil between my fingers... Often you can feel things you can't see or can tell if the oil has thinned out.. If its thin like water or definitely not an oily feel then replace.
I'm with this :beer:I gotta agree with Dwayne here.
Show me the data that extending oil changes an extra 1 or 2k (under normal highway/street driving) correlates to eventual engine replacement.
Seems to me an engine is more likely to fail due to LACK of lubrication (not maintaining proper oil LEVELS) or allowing the coolant system to overheat the engine. Not due to extended oil change intervals.
Seems a bit harsh.I'm glad all you guys have these random stories about motors lasting but even if you aren't pulling it out of your ass you the exception not the standard.
Btw how many brand new Gm Carrs just got the recall about the oil life monitor being off?
You keep trusting a computer the motors now a days are a lot more expensive and harder to work on than a old motors.
