2005 Sebring, 2.7L, 25K mi / yr, mostly highway @75 mph but some short
stuff, too, so Schedule B seems to fit.

Schedule B says oil change every 3K mi (about every 6 weeks), but the oil is
still clean enough to read the dip stick markings. Seems a shame to change
it this soon.

Would going to a 5K OCI cause problems later on with any warranty claim
under the 3/36 or 7/70?

TIA.

Bob

I run synthetic, and follow *Schedule A*. Even then, the oil does not
get completely black, even after that much mileage. I am out of
warranty so I don't have to worry about that part. Whatever you decide
to do, I would recommend keeping good records in the event of a
warranty claim. The 2.7 was known for sludging problems from at least
1998 - 2001. I don't know how later 2.7's are holding up.

If an oil turns "black" it means that it is doing its job of holding
contaminates in suspension. A non-detergent oil stays nice and clear a lot
longer that a great detergent synthetic oil.
