How many miles should an oil change be done? Will the message on the dash be
accurate when on?
Under typical driving conditions you should get at least 5000 miles from an oil change. Most vehicles with sensors "watch" your oil and let you know when a change is needed but I will always defer to looking at the oil and my miles to decide without going over the 5K mark.
I suggest setting a schedule of every 5,000 miles instead of using the reminder.
