how is it that the newer cars can go 15k-20k miles without an oil change or filter change, and still make it to 150k+ miles?  by now, there are a lot of them with 100k+ miles and no engine problems.

maybe i'll let the oil go to 10k miles, and change the filter at 5k.

With oil analysis, you can determine how long you should be keeping the oil in your engine before changing it- however, you do need to change the filter regularly.

Some synthetics can go 15k w/o breakdown, but you still need to change the filter every 5k miles.
