Simple question. How many miles between oil changes on 2001 Jag, S-type, 4.0? Thx.

My car has 87500 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. Depending on what oil you use will determine how long you can wait. If you go full synthetic with a good oil filter then you can go as much as 7500 miles. If you use conventional oil then you should not go more than 5000 miles.
