Should I be worried about oil change indicator?
I try to go 6k between oil changes, but did my first at 5500mi. I thought that I would go to 12k, then change again and be on that schedule. However, yesterday at 8k, the indicator says that it's time now! It's not even been 3k yet! Are these designed to make you do 3k changes, or do they really analyze driving habits and such? Should I be concerned that I got such a short interval between changes? I don't think I'm going to change it still until 12k. Thoughts on this?
