    Whatever this forum told me to do
    true.

    but the other variable that it is subject to are far more invasive. clutch plate wear, high heat, etc.

    different, yes.

    and yet we don't fuss over it.

    and transmissions fail far more in relation to the lubrication liquid than any engine does in relation to oil related failure.

    There’s so much data and so many sensors that the only reason I can imagine this isn’t happening is because either they’re afraid of confusing/annoying consumers or taking revenue from their service departments.

    You guys will clearly know more than me here, but I imagine it’s totally possible for the ECU to log things like temp, load, idling, starts, etc. that would all play a factor in how healthy one’s oil is.

    But I can imagine consumers might not like having an oil change light come on sooner than expected (“My buddy’s Dodge doesn’t need a change for x miles!”), service centers seeing customers coming in for >10k intervals, etc.

    So the easier move is just to continue the normal oil change system that people are already familiar and comfortable with, as imperfect as it is.

    and those sensors can't track dusty environments.

    I'm in a rail yard with nasty ass ground up train dust everywhere.

    no sensors for that.

    It takes me more than 30 years to learn how often to change out motor oil. I used to change out oil every 2K, then 3K, then 5K with synthetic, then 7.5K, then 10K, then 15K, then 17.5K, and currently 20K. Sometimes I can't do at 20K so it is over 20K for another 1 or 2K. I only do 10K if it is required for warranty purpose.

    Which one are you thinking about getting? Looks to be 4 types, I think I might get the position adjustable one.

    He said in the video dealers buy the cheapest shit they can get their hands on and it’s rarely Toyota branded oil.

    If this guy can get Fords and Jeeps to these mileage numbers he may be on to something.

    Grumble grumble

    I got to do a cooling system refresh last year (oil cooler was like 3 or 4 years back). It took me like 8 months to collect the parts thru like 5 vendors for the job.

    Yeah Chrysler engineering: let’s save a few bucks and put a majority plastic oil cooler under the top and bottom intake manifolds.

    I did that. Started rumble stripping around 30-35mph, then every time before downshift. After change, drives great.

    Always felt 10k was way too long, maybe because I grew up always hearing about changing your oil every 3k miles. All my changes are 5k for all my vehicles now.

    I'll be doing an oil change on the Sequoia this weekend. I bought an Amsoil filter too but 15k miles seems crazy. Is it normal to not change an Amsoil filter for that long?

    I use what you have pictured, one year/10k miles. If I'm going to change the oil, I'm going to change the filter as a matter of course.

    I've heard some guys do the oil at 5k but leave the filter alone until the next change
