Newbie here! I'm searching for time intervals for oil changes.

How often, in terms of months, should someone who drives maybe 10 miles a day to work and back change their oil? So far, I've found between 5,000 and 7,500 miles, but I *might* drive that in a year. My ex was changing it every 3 months which is expensive and seems excessive.

Also, does the time frame vary according to the oil and filter you buy?

My search function is not working, so I apologize if this is a duplicate question.

This is the subject of much discussion - one of the top 3-4 thread subjects, along with all the arguments about which oil is best.

Answer is, in your case, once per year. The nominal is 15K miles or one year (in the USA).
