    in a way it is correct. once you put it in the engine, it gets contaminated. contaminated oil gets "spoiled". for storage purposes, it is adequate, however, once the car gets used again, kelangan na sya palitan.

    4ja1 engine older model. more power to all...TIA
    it falls under severe driving, contrary to common sense.

    too much fuel dilution, and the oil doesn't get the chance to reach operating temps (no chance to get rid of the fuel and/or other contaminants)

    you'll have to drain and replace the oil sooner.

    an alternative is to use it regularly for long drives. going out of town on weekends will help. masaya pa!

    If you drive around in traffic a lot like we do here in Metro Manila, the time the engine is running at idle RPM becomes a factor. Leaving the engine at idle RPM for a significant amount of time has detrimental effects on oil life and by extension, added engine wear.

    That's why it is not the best practice to just rely on traveled distance to decide on when to change the oil. The actual engine run-time is actually the reason why car manufacturers specify a "whichever comes first" clause.

    good explanation sir..

    buti na lang ako sakto within 3 to 5 months ang 10k travelled distance.. so palaging every 10k ang change oil ko which is still within 6 months time frame.

    the "contamination", or removal of the dirt from the engine is normal. what you should be worried about is the absorbtion of water from the atmosphere. this holds true especially for cars that are hardly used. the oil will tend to become less viscous and will not perform as well once there is water contamination that has happened.

    re: the duration, longer is ok as long as the oil can take it. replacing it too often is a waste of money. just make sure the level is always in check.

    If on a budget, it's better to use mineral oil and just change it frequently. No matter how good the additives in synthetic oils are, you're still stuck with contaminants floating around in it if you prolong your change intervals. Fresh oil is best.
