  1. A few days ago, I took my car to a car shop nearby for an oil change. However, after a week of usage the oil is black. Is it normal for the oil to be dark after oil change? Do I need to visit a car shop to check-up and possible repair?
  2. Good day. I have a Mitsubishi Lancer 1992 Model running in a 1.3 Cyclone Engine. I changed my engine oil last August 2014. It is a Mobil 1 5W-50 Fully Synthetic Oil. That time, I was told by the mechanic that this type of oil can be changed after 5000kms (since I reside in the Philippines and km is the unit for mileage, not miles) since it's a fully synthetic type. So what I did is I reset the trip mileage (if I did it correctly I pressed the button on the odometer which reset the 4 digit number to 0000 right after oil change) so I can track the kms my car have ran. I also know for a fact that not just the numbers but you also have to consider the color and smell of the oil before changing it because sometimes, numbers can fool you. To give you a heads up, when I changed last August, the color of the brand new oil is light gold to clear, but just yesterday when I checked it, it's slightly red (not the extreme hue of red but you know how oils are a little bit reddish to orange). If it would also help, I drive on stop and go conditions here and the weather is probably around 30-32 degrees celcius on most days. So I guess my questions are: - How do you read the odometer picture that I attached here? Is it 244,794 miles for total mileage and 784 kms for trip mileage or is it a totally different reading? - Considering the factors that I stated above and the odometer numbers that I posted (since it was taken just yesterday), should I be changing my engine oil already? Thanks a lot for reading my post. I hope you guys could help me. Ciao!

    Do it myself Service work?

    Does anybody know if there is something available that I can buy that keeps track of the service work I do myself? I am always looking up parts numbers and number of Quarts for me and my girlfriends cars.
