    Question How often do you have your car's oil changed?

    Do you do it every $3K miles as recommended?

    We try to, but we always seem to fall behind a bit.

    Yep, every 3K miles or 3 months, whichever comes first.

    We try to do every three thousand, but depending on what kind of oil you use, some say up to five thousand miles. I try to stay between 3 or 4 thousand, but not beyond that.

    I read an article not long ago that said some automakers are recommending every 6000 miles now. But I still go every 3000, which reminds me, it's time.

    Every 3 thousand mile or as close to that as I can get, cause lots of time it runs over a little.

    I change my oil every 3,000 miles and I always use a good quality oil. I also use an oil pan warmer in the winter. It makes a big difference in how well the car starts and runs.

    We try to get the oil changed in our vehicals every 3,000 miles but, I must admit, we do get a bit behind at times!
