I see in the owner's manual they only recommend replacing the filter every 8000-10,000 miles.

...or in most cases now, every 8-10 years. They are not expensive. Changing the filter every time the oil is changed would be a good maintenance schedule to follow.

Yup, especially when running new oil through an old and probably dirty engine (even if not sludged up) new filters really can't hurt your cause. If we waited until we get to the recommended interval the filter will probably have fallen apart anyway.

I'm changing mine with each oil change. The good filters are Wix or NAPA Gold, or go cheap since it won't be there that long and get a Purolator or Fram on sale.
