I guess most car manuals, if not all, say to change your engine oil every 5000 kms. or every 3 months whatever comes first. I just don't understand the 3 mths. part. Suppose you only drive your vehicle say 3000 kms. in 3 mths. How would the oil get dirtier or lose its lubricating abilities by the car or jeep compass sitting idle. The engine is sealed very well. It's like saying oil goes bad or gets dirty sitting in any container. What'd ya think? :idea:
Some interesting info on how often to change your oil.
