The average interval between engine oil changes recommended by automobile manufacturers ranges from 5,000 miles to as high as 20,000, depending on whether the vehicle falls under the "normal" or "severe" service category. Whether conventional or synthetic oil is used, today's formulations are generally quite up to the task of lasting as long as the automaker's service interval recommendation. However, that does not mean that there is little more to an oil/filter change than following maintenance schedule recommendations. By having the oil analyzed, vehicle owners can learn a number of things. For instance, oil's abrasive content can help better gauge future oil-change intervals, and the presence of antifreeze can help catch a leaking cylinder head before real problems emerge.
