I've been told to change my oil at 1000 miles on my '02 RS, but wanted to know what other people have done.

What's all the nonsense about synthetic vs the other?

I'm currently about 324 miles......what oil should i dump into it at 1000 miles? Mobile 1? Does the filter need changed then too?

I can tell this site is going to be a HUGE help!

Thanks for your help!

Some people say to change the oil at 1000 miles to get all the shavings out of the engine.

I did my first oil change at 2,700 miles because I believe that the shavings help break the engine in a little better. (natural boring) :lol: That, or because I'm just a little lazy.

I didn't go synthetic until 10,000 miles. Change the filter EVERY time you change the oil.
