Every 5k is good to have your engine oil change; don't forget to change your oil filter as well.

Modern vehicles with healthy engines have less pollutants going into the oil, mine can go 7-10 K with no drop in levels, tailpipe stays unusually clean since new(finger wiping clean)test. Big difference from two decades ago. Great performance @ 80 K miles.

Don't trust the shops and it is easier and much cheaper to do quality synthetic oil changes myself. No annoying upselling or sabotage.

I change my own. We live in a 35-foot motorhome and only put 5,300 miles on it last year. I use Mobil-1 and I change the oil once/year.

mobil1 synthetic. oil change interval is just under 7500 because manufacturer warranty is void if exceed 7500 OCI

wifes care automatically tells when oil requires changing and often reminds us between 9,000-10,000 miles. use mobil1 there too

I have a system that tells me the life of my oil. When it is down to 10 or 15%, I get it changed.

I change my own oil in my truck. Don't want to pay someone else for what I can do myself. I run about every 3 months or 5,000 miles.
