Have you looked on the cap where you add the oil?...some will have the type of oil required, printed right into that filler cap...check it out

of course, you could also check your owners manual for recommended grade ..if you still have it.

How often should I change my oil?


Most people change their oil every 3000-3500 miles. Alot of late model cars are recommended to change every 5000 miles. I would do it every 3000 miles for regular oil & every 5000 if you use synthetic oil.

it sounds like your oil pump is not working good. check oil pressure at cold and what weight oil are you using. it may be too heavy for it to get up to the top of the motor quick.if there was any build up in the head when you changed the lifters you may want to flush the oil system good then put fresh oil back in

Oil should be changed every 5000 miles for moderate driving. Some people have adopted the 3500 mile interval for changing oil. The length of time is not relevant, change it between 3500 and 5000 miles. The number is the same for newer cars as well

How often do I change the oil in my new Lincoln MKX ...every 2000 km or every 5000 km?


The owner's manual calls for changing oil and filter every 7500 miles in normal service, or if driving in dusty conditions, offroad, or lots of low speed and idling (a taxi or maybe an unlucky commuter), go to the extreme service intervals of 5000 miles. Changing oil every 3000 miles is definitely NOT required.
