    just now seen this.. I went with 7500.. but usually ends up between 5-7500 using Valvoline Full Syn this last time, but generally Mobil 1 Full Syn. But I keep an eye on my oil and temps to make sure everything is good!

    I used to be the one changing oil in the rigs until I joined the Navy (I am NWSCREW's son for those who haven't noticed)

    For all 3 rigs, it's 5000 miles. The F150 and the Mustang both use Mobil1 Full Synthetic while the Cavalier uses cheap oil (usually Napa oil)
