Thumbs Up Oil Change 147

Re: Oil Change 147

I would changed it a LONG time ago. Ok so I am a crzy person who changes every 3000km but usually 5000 to 7000km is standard, at least in my opinion

Re: Oil Change 147

20000km/1-year between oil changes is normal.
10000km/6-months between changes is being very cautious.

3000km between changes is a bit too often, unless you can only get very poor quality oil or have a free supply of good stuff.

Re: Oil Change 147

Firstly it is interesting you list a Peugeot as your car yet you state you own an Alfa 147??? Or is that a Peugeot 147 if it exists?

Basically what David C said is correct and it relates to period too but also how often you drive. I have had my 147 from new, now 10 months and only just clicked over 8000 kms. So far it has had the 3000km "run in oil" change and a intermediate service oil change at 6mths since that one.

Because of more short trips than less long trips the oil is more prone to breakdown/diluted (yes even the full synthetic Castrol Edge Sport the dealer is using). So I am continuing with intermediate 10K or 6mth inbetween normal 20kms 12mth services.

Hope that helps.
