Its kinda weird, I am deleted and running 5w40 and the change oil soon reminder came up at about 4k miles. Now before everyone ask I did reset the oil life and didn't tow anything heavy or idle for extended periods. Must be a fluke? Got a little over 5k mikes on this oil now and am getting ready to change it again just for peace of mind, have a road trip coming up and rather be safe than sorry!

Mine hasn't come on yet and I'm at about 5200. I bought all my oil an filter I just wanna make the old stuff last. My dipstick says I'm cool but I don't trust it cause it has such a long way to travel before it hits oil.

Checkout Blackstone Labs and have an oil analysis done. It's a quick and inexpensive way to learn what's going on with your engine and the condition of your oil when you change it. They are responsive with questions you may have after receiving your analysis too.

Good luck.
