Amsoil 0W-30 Signature Series. Change every six months. Six months of driving for me only equals 3k miles, but for my own peace of mind, I still change out at that interval even though the oil is supposed to last much longer.

Didn't want to star a new topic for the same subject so ill ask here :)

I usally take my 2004 armada to get the oil changed at a shop to tell u the truth I don't know what kind they use. Since I'm about to hit 100000 miles I wana start doing my own oil changes so I can visually inspect it. Now I see lots of people use moble 1 which is synthetic oil. If the shop used regular oil is it ok to just drain it and replace with the m1 ? are the fram oil filters ok?
