I haven't been able to change the oil on my Viggen for almost 2 years, because I have not been able to be home. It was stored for the winter. It's probably been driven 3-5k miles, so low mileage. Will change it hopefully in a few months when I can come back.
How bad is this? Should I get there person who's currently driving it for me a few times per month to get the oil changed? I change the oil 100% of the time and would prefer to do it myself, but if this is borderline bad, then I'll have them take it to a higher end mechanic to get it changed.
Don't want any "sludge" to form as a result of this.
Thanks for any help!
