So for those in STL, Lexus St. Louis (Mugenast) changes my oil, and they put the new oil sticker on the windshield that says I need to come back for another after 5k miles. However, doesn't the owners manual say unless you're driving in dusty conditions and such, oil changes can be done every 7.5k? I just spoke with someone at Mungenast because a check light came on in my car and my trac off light is blinking and they said "you're overdue for your oil change," (last change was around 60k, I'm at 66.5k right now). I said "isn't it 7.5k," and they reply that 7.5k is the max. So, am I driving under the wrong assumptions, or is Mungenast trying to make some extra cash by getting people in for oil changes on a more consistent basis than they would otherwise?
And if anyone has any guesses as to why or what it means when my Check light goes on and my TRAC OFF light is blinking, let me know (I press the trac off button, on and off, but nothing changes on the dash lights).
Royal Purple has claimed it can go over 10000, but the problem is the oil filter. I would not go over 5000 on the oil filter.
