Do you still change your oil on your car every 3,000 miles? Like the ?55 Chevy, the 3,000-Mile Oil Change Is Pretty Much History - Yahoo! Finance According to that link you don't really need too anymore. I remember hearing 3,000 all the time growing up so I usually semi-stick to that since my car was made in 2000. One time I left it go to 5,000 though. My Mom told me a story when I was learning to drive how her Dad never told her about oil changes so she never got it changed it and it wrecked her car. So how about you people?
