When would you guys change the oil on a new motor? would you wait 3000 miles or sooner? its a roller cam motor so there is no cam breakin

I change the oil in brand new engines right after the cam is broken in (20 min), 100 miles, 500 miles, and finally 3000 mi. The 3000 can be pushed to around 5000 miles if it's mostly interstate. Synthetic oil will also extend change intervals.

Call me paranoid, but my cars seem to last a really long time.


Good Luck!

I agree with n2omike recommendations. You can never change oil too soon in my opinion.

And by all means, select a good oil to begin with. But, don't start with synthetic until the first oil change after you have 1000-3000 miles on the motor.
