Thinking of doing a oil change at 5k miles

Thinking of doing a oil change at 5k miles switching over to Rotella T6 5w-40 weight. Bought the oil and filter myself, is a reasononble change of every 5k better or wait for the 10k?
I live in Texas as well if it matters...........

This has been discussed multiple times. The oil monitor is intelligent and adjusts accordingly. I'd change per that indicator but no harm other than to your pocket book to do it earlier.

harm to pocket book, yes at a point at first, but better to change early and not wait?

Maybe ask yourself why not change it at 4K, 3K, or even every 1K?

5k will be fine until the emission deletes are done, the you could bump it up a few k. Unless you dont plan on keeping it for more than a couple years..in that case why bother at all
