I checked the unabombers oil faq, but didn't find what I was looking for.
I have a 2005 wrx with 850 miles on it. The manual says you don't have to change the oil until 3000 miles, but I've heard lots of people say to change it at 1000. Which is more common?
I also heard it's not good to switch to synthetic right away. Is this true?
If I don't switch to synthetic, what is a good brand of dino oil? Up until now all i've had to get was whatever was cheapest. :-p
Thanks to the answers to the noob questions.
