confused Why is me man only checking me oil once a month

Seriously but for fun any advice
After 4 years Why is me man only checking me oil once a month and running his motor for a minute at a time im not yet a classic or near being a classic me body is still in mint condition me engines running fine although maybe running a bit rich. Is it time for a oil change or maybe he needs a tune up or maybe its time for some frequent serviceing.

Re: Why is me man only checking me oil once a month

When you'vwe had a car for a while you tend to know how often the oil needs checking.

Running the engine for a minute only is pretty dangerous and leads to premature wear and failure. The engine needs to be up to correct temp and caorrect pressure and the RPM and loads need to be varied.

Perhaps a performance additive could help? Phizer (I'm not looking it up to find out how to spell it) make some products that can help the older blokes rev a little better.

Yes but when you add modifications you'd think he may check the oil more frequently lol

I was going to say this thread was useless without pics. How can you expect us to give a constuctive answer without some visuals
Not at all fair on us
