where do you get oil and filters for that price?I use synthetic and change it when the oil is turns darker. I check the oil once a week or so. I usually change it between 4 and 5k. I've always had a hard time believing that 7500 miles is good. I do it myself though, so it cuts down on cost. 22 bucks for 5qt of Mobil or Castrol synthetic, and 7 bucks for an oem filter. My friends 2016 Toyota has 10k change intervals on regular oil. I told him if he follows that he's going to have problems later on.

I'm been thinking about using seafoam in my 2.5. It's got 150k but it runs great so I don't know if there's any risk and if it's worth it but I figure with those miles there has to be something to get out.I almost didn't buy my car because of oil neglect. The car only had 28K miles but the oil was really dark and there were signs of muck. Apparently the original owner was going 11K miles between oil changes. It took a while to clean it up running Seafoam for the last 500 miles prior to oil changes but it worked and the engine has been great.
