Will it damage my 2012 Chrysler T & C van if I go over the 5000 mile oil & filter changes by 500 miles just this one time?

Asked by Nov 16, 2015 at 12:02 PM about the 2012 Chrysler Town & Country Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am 1014 miles short of the 5000 interval & I will drive 1500 this weekend.
Will it be ok if I drive the  highway miles and get the maintenance service when I get back?

NO!!!!! That is a long drive on oil that is not protecting your motor. No noticeable damage will likely be done. However, unnoticeable damage is the worst damage. If you're gonna get it changed anyway. Why not protect the motor before you beat it up with 1500 hard miles?
