jgos929 has a little shameless behaviour in the past

If your change oil light came on 2000 miles after you last changed it then reset it and go about your business. There is no need for an oil change. If you read any of the many threads on the subject you'll notice that the change oil light has a mind of it's own. If it had an oil life indicator (% life left) like my Escalade and TL then I would follow that but it doesn't. As far as when to change the oil that is all personal preference. I changed my oil the first time at 500 miles and swapped to full synthetic. Since then I have changed it every 5000 miles. I have 13500 miles on my truck now and the oil change light has only come on once in that entire time. Go figure
