my view.. it was NEVER about the money.. or the work...
its about the LIE's marketing feeds the ill informed..
look into the money.. the quicky oil change places make each year..
and the companies that supply them... then the oil filter companies...
if you change from 3,000 to 6,000 miles per oil change.. do the math.. even if you change your own oil...
then add up the number of engines in the country..
to point a case.
a Ford F350 with a Gas engine... its a 2011.. A work truck.
it has a flat bed instead of a pickup bed.. so is ALWAYS carrying HEAVY.
its camshaft failed.. at 418,000 miles....
oil change was every 5,000 miles.. Dino oil and average oil filter.
its is Documented on a Ford Truck Forum.. with photos...
he had Ford install a new crate engine... transmission and final drive got fluid changes. and now has passed 550,000 miles
2005 VTX1800 F, type II, Silver Tribal, 89,000 Miles, Purchased Feb, 2005.
