did you drain your old oil out before adding new oil in?

actually, if you don't have your Air Filter, you'll gain a little more power...

I feel much better right after each oil change. I change the oil myself, and always use the same brand/type of oil.

ok your oil was low then you drained whats left and put new in and it runs better now thats good thats what oil is suposed to do lubricate pistons and lifters and guides ect ect ectwhen its low or viscosity is broken down these items begin grinding metal to metal literally robing you of Performance unfortionally you may have caused damage not noticable yet but is coming if your oil change made that much of a difference would love to see how bad your engine is damaged if not how much sludge is built up its recomended to change your oil every 3000 to 5000 miles not just when you feel like it (if you want to keep your car running good) if you r racing it change it at most 3000 miles even with synthetic,,,ps be careful of some of the advice you recieved on this post thumbsup

The sticker usually lists when you should change it. So when you get to that KM, change it.

No god, don't wait till 15,000KM, you won't have a motor for long doing that. These are high-reving 4 cylinders that need to be changed about every 6,000KM or less.
