Missing an oil change?
I have a 2011 Subaru Impreza. Last June I gave it to my son as a college graduation present. The last oil change was in February at 29,000 miles. The interval is every 7.5 months or 7,500 miles. I didn't drive much so I did the 7.5 month changes.
It now has 38,000 miles, so it is 1,500 miles past due.
How critical is that? Will it lead to a catastrophic failure in the next few miles, reduce the engine life a bit; or something else.
Serious, I don't know. I always do my oil changes religiously and never have a problem.
He is a good kid, but geez, when I was 23 I did my oil changes. He goes to graduate school, student teaches, and has two part time jobs coaching crew; he says he knew he was past due, but just didn't have time. I explained that he had to find time; but no one had to explain that to me.
