I'll bite. Why is a 5,000-mile oil change right and the car's engineers and laboratories like Blackstone wrong?Where I have a problem is the 10k oil change interval is recommended (and required for MB warranty claims), the 451 and 453 motors are not MB, but Renault and Mitsubishi.
Also, the video points out 'oil starvation' and 'oil consumption' issues that would be better addressed by 5000 mile oil changes.
Vehicle owners should regularly inspect their cars between intervals. A service interval doesn't mean "ignore everything until it's time for an oil change." It is safe practice to make sure your vehicle is in good condition with some regularity. That means checking tires, bulbs, and yep, fluids.The video shows damage to the engine from oil consumption (ie. oil with 'life' still in it, but low) and that's not the fault of the owner or owner's not maintaining their cars; they are following the recommended 10k service.
Which one would you follow - one that you have to replace your engine, even following the 10K mile service or you change the oil on your own every 5k?
